I may sound completely insane - but the night before we leave for our Annual Aruba Trip i literally cannot sleep. It is the only vacation i do this with. I don't even snooze for 10 minutes. I think it has been going on now for so many years that I have now built it up to the point of no return - we are leaving in 34 days and i am already worried about how to get sleep. I have tried every relaxation technique i have heard of, leaving the room and returning when tired, reading, watching TV, OTC sleep aids and Nyquil (which usually knocks me out with 1/2 a dose.)
I hate it because it gets the vacation off to such a bad start for me every year - i am so tired during the trip that i am cranky. We just had our third child in July and will have 3 kids to keep together on the trip it would really help if i got even a couple hours of sleep.
Anyone have any advice ?
