Yes, I am bone tired. I am back from the family wedding that warranted my new haircut. I had a great time, filled with family, old friends, and a ridiculous amount of fun. I also had ice cream twice, as well as wedding cake. Wine flowed. Sinful abandon abounded.
Now that I am home, I find myself exhausted. I did nothing yesterday, and I may do nothing again today. I'm trying to figure out if this is a physical reaction or an emotional one? It is likely a combination of the two. I refuse to admit that I am simply aging and have less energy. Oh, Hell no!
In the meantime, my nephew's wife is having a baby. She is having a hard time and a long labor. I wish we were still in Indiana so I could be sitting vigil in the hospital with my Baby Sister. Saturday she married off her youngest child. A few days later her oldest provides her first grandchild.
If sonograms can be trusted, today we add another heroine to the family saga AND Baby Sister and Mikey become grandparents! My nephew and niece-in-law's lives will change forever. Everyone's life will be enhanced when this baby arrives. I may be bone tired, but I am shaken (not stirred) by these glorious events.
Today I will be on the couch reading, napping, and resting my weary bones. Perhaps I'll get my mojo back after this stubborn baby girl is finally born.
The humble couch was invented not as a decorative item for interior design but for exactly these things you list: reading, napping, resting.ReplyDelete
I hope the baby has arrived!
It seems like wonderful things are happening around you. Good times can make us exhausted, but it is a good exhaustion.ReplyDelete
So true - it is good exhaustion.Delete
Rest up as you will have to provide an Example to the new little girl. Being a hero is tiring work. I prescribe a good book and a nice soup.ReplyDelete
Thank you, my friend.Delete
Well, congratulations to you and all involved, and by all means rest while you have a chance! I'm sure the new baby will eventually demand more traveling! :)ReplyDelete
Yes, it will! Just missed her on this trip. Now this is the perfect excuse to go back.Delete
I see from the above comment that the baby has arrived. Hurray! Mazel tov! Now you can rest. Take care there.ReplyDelete
I will. You take care there, too.Delete
Wow! The baby girl has arrived! New energy for all of us to share. Last night I dreamed that a newborn baby boy was given to my care. I forgot that dream until just now. Sending love to you and your growing family.ReplyDelete
I wonder what that newborn baby boy represented to your unconscious mind? So interesting. Something new and "other" in your life. Feelin' the love, thanks.Delete
So many happy events are happening. No wonder you feel exhausted. Relax and enjoy the good feelings.ReplyDelete
I am super happy!Delete
Even the most joyous times can be total exhausting. Are you an Empath? Empaths usually need a few days to recover from emotion events.ReplyDelete
I think I probably am. Haven't been tested, but it seems likely.Delete
Congratulations on the new Baby, the Newlyweds, lots of Fun and Sinful abandon! How you're feeling is probably the letdown period, like after any vacay, transitioning back to normalcy is sometimes difficult physically and emotionally. Even the Good Times are pretty exhausting sometimes... good stress and bad stress is still stress.ReplyDelete
Thanks,Dawn. Sounds about right.Delete
I wish you the energy to cope with and enjoy all these wonderful happenings!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I am bouncing back.Delete
Ebb and flow. Ebb and flow. It is a good life skill to know how to enjoy them both.ReplyDelete
Congrats on the birth of a baby girl!
Many thanks! Good advice.Delete
I'm a lot older so perhaps I deceive myself. Provided there's no ironing to be done, no skillets to be scraped, no alliteration to be ascribed, tiredness can be a sensuous pleasure. The bones detach themselves and form a neat symmetrical pile, language is dispensed with and sighs provide an indulgent alternative. Eventually one dozes. Forget prying into the reasons, go with the flow. Which - like all flows - tends to be downwards. In any case, mojo's overrated. Dream about martinis - it seems your halfway there.ReplyDelete
Good comment! I wondered where you've been.Delete
