Not quite the tango.

This is a dance I know all too well. No instructions required.

Though my movements appear random, each stumble and yawn feels carefully choreographed. I've danced this song before.

Ah, insomnia; the constant rhythm to my world. Like an addict and her vice, I can never stray too far from your painful hold. But to close my eyes brings no relief. The darkness of my eyelids simply awakens the self-inflicted demons that feed on my half-rested mind.

Like my children in the night, as they search for the safety of my arms, I'll pursue the search for relief; a safety blanket for my adult soul...

Slow, slow. Quick. Quick...

You look EXHAUSTED.
Is everything okay? I'm sorry that things are rough right now.

I was kind of amazed when I saw on Facebook that both you and Rich were up at the same time.

Perhaps more wine would help?

CaraBee said...

I'm with you. It sucks.

Wow. Tracey - are you okay? I know - dumb question. Can I help?

Debbie said...

Oh, Tracey, I'm sorry. I hope this all gets better for you soon.

I'm right there with you. I'll find you on facebook...perhaps our misery will like a little company in the middle of the night? Hope things start to look up for you soon. Thinking of you!

Dana said...

Oh no! You do NOT look happy! I hope you found some sweet relief in the form of much needed rest!

oh babes, unfortunately I share your plight. The exhaustion part, at least. Here's to it all getting better soon! Hugs.

Geesh... I can not even imagine not sleeping. Call me if you want to talk. Please?

Oh no, I'm so sorry. Insomnia is so brutal on the mind and body.

I hope that you find rest soon.

Oh no girl...what's haunting you?

I'm a tango instructor searching for other tango blogs, when I stumbled across your post title :)

Just think of all your hard work and how it will pay off when your favorite milkshake lover grows up!

Thank you for the post,

Maybe an episode of Thomas the Train? Always puts me to sleep.

I hope you find some z's and peace soon.
