Why can't I fall sleep anymore?

I have noticed that I am having a lot more issues falling asleep these days. It's to the point where I am up past midnight almost every night. I go to bed as soon as I know that Taylor is asleep, but then after 30 minutes I get out of bed & try to tire myself out......doesn't work. What's worse - I have to be up at 6am Mon, Tues, Wed & Fri this week to babysit, plus get Taylor into a school routine (bed routine & wake up routine) & I have to try to go out to see Daron at some point this week. Oh, don't forget all the phone calls that I have to make to try & move Daron to Lowell. Maybe that's why I can't sleep....I know that I have a ton of stuff on my plate the next few weeks. I can't even think about going back to sleep anymore after the kiddo I babysit gets here...I need to get myself into my school routine as well. This is a crazy time in my life & I don't know what I'm gonna do about my sleeping habits. All I know is that I have to get things under control -- when I sleep really well I feel better & have more energy. I just have to remember to hand everything over to God before I climb in bed & while I am trying to fall asleep. I need to cling to the promises in Psalm 4:8 every single night "I will lie down & sleep in peace, for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety."
