What do you do when you can't sleep?

It is now 3:45am.  I have been up for just over an hour and a half.  I can tell you now it will be a two pot of coffee kind of day.  I don't know why I can't sleep (probably stress related) but for some reason I have been up and down since 10:30pm.  So what have I done with this middle of this night quiet time? 

I have answered long overdue emails.

I have updated my google calendar

I have fooled around on Facebook

I have visited Dr. Oz's website for his Oz 100

I have watched Criminal Minds- and now Oprah. 

I have visited my "friends" blogs and caught up on where they are.

I have researched smoothie recipes that I can take for lunch. 

I have done a load of dishes. 

I have started an email to send to myself at work of things I need to get done this week.

I feel like I haven't really accomplished anything - but I am doing my best to be very quiet so I don't wake the hubby while I wander around.  I wish that I could just sit still and be, rather than do.  Perhaps if I could, I could sleep rather than sit here wondering what else I can do.  So I am curious.  Many of us with RA and Fibro have issues sleeping.  What do YOU do when you can't sleep?

When I can't sleep I usually go and make a cup of tea...stay on the computer for as long as I can until my parents get annoyed as the computer is right by their room....I read blogs, apply for jobs etc. upload photo's.

I also like to sew and paint at night time when it is quiet and I can concentrate and not be disturbed.

I have RA and often find that I just can't get comfortable to sleep or due to my RA halting my physical activity I am often not tired at night unless I have overdone it during the day...
