To hit the sack (verb)

Meaning - to go to bed in order to sleep

This expression is used when you want to tell someone that you are ready to go to bed in order to fall asleep.

Example 1
I had a long and busy day at work yesterday.  So, I hit the sack as soon as I got home last night.  I am glad I got enough sleep because I feel much better today.

Example 2
John: Hey! You are home.  How was school?
Lisa: It was fun and we practiced a lot of new words.  But now, I am so tired.  I think I am just going to hit the sack.
John: Already?  Aren't you going to study for your test?
Lisa:  I don't think I can.  I am just so sleepy.  I will wake up early and study tomorrow morning.
John: OK, good luck!
