Ahhh finally!!!

This is exactly what I think as soon as I lay down in my bed to sleep.

Yes, there are times I fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. Sometimes I lay there thinking about the joys of my day, worries over what I need to accomplish in the near future, sometimes achy with muscle spasms, congestion in my nose, restless as though my body feels like it needs to move,and I need to toss and turn. On occasion I need to get up and read or watch something, or feel hungry in the pit of my stomach, or hear the tiniest noises in the entire building, or there is too much light, it’s too dark, I have restless legs,... You know the drill.
