You Are Getting Sleepy, NOT!

Why is it that I can be brain dead for three hours watching TV (well you can’t be brain dead and watch “24”) and then I go to bed and my mind starts going full steam. The things to do, to write about, to find, to buy, to say, to not say, to do, to do, to do …

And so I lay there and say “don’t think about it, go to sleep, go to sleep” and nothing. I’ve heard that if you can’t fall asleep after 15 or 20 minutes you should get up and read or do something else. Unfortunately the people who give that advice must not have a dog who thinks if you get up and go into another room she should come with you and then before we go back to bed she should go outside. Oh well. Maybe tonight my mind will shut off but if not I hope it gives me some good ideas to share here.
