Insomniac Post

Why can't I sleep? I hate it, hate it :-(
I go to bed tired and then as if by magic by brain whirrs into action, worrying about everything! How to finish my dissertation / air fares to London / finding a job / whether I'm going to achieve everything I need to tomorrow...blah, blah ad infinitum.

And what's even more annoying, is that darling hubbie falls asleep almost instantly, every night, and I lie awake fretting. So, any good insomnia cures out there? Answers to this journaller please.

For now I'll resort to Marvin's lullaby...(the paranoid android, courtesy of the genius Douglas Adams)

Now the world has gone to bed,
Darkness won't engulf my head,
I can see by infrared,
How I hate the night.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
Try to count electric sheep,
Sweet dream wishes you can keep,
How I hate the night.
