I’m tired. That’s the only word for it. I’ve been tired for days and I’m only just now enough untired to pop up and say hi. Howdy. Because yanno, from Texas originally.
It’s been a good sort of busy around here lately though. My sister (the other sister) came to visit, which necessitated all the cleaning and running around like a headless chicken that familial visits entail. And then there was the actual visit. We ended up having a fight, but it was good in the end. We finally sat down and discussed things and probably for the first time this century were on the same page. It was amazing, and I look forward to continuing to rebuild our relationship on a better foundation.
But obviously, all of that takes a lot of spoons. A lot of spoons. Add in a couple of sick children, and whelp. I’m not sure how I’ve been holding it all together, but I have. Barely. The husband very kindly arranged for me to have a few hours without anyone in the house earlier today and that helped a bit. Hopefully a good night’s sleep and another low-impact day will see me swung about. Who knows. At least the spot of insomnia that had been blighting me seems to have gone away, so that’s good.
Also, anxiety has gone back a few pegs, but that’s to be expected with a big stressful thing done and over with. I’m not really sure exactly where it is. I had hoped that upping my dose of antidepressant would have done for it, but it seems to be clinging on. Maybe it will start to fade again soon? I don’t know. Maybe I need to find more things different to do? Being out in the garden has been nice, and I’ll need to get out there tomorrow to do some belated planting. I think the weather is going to cooperate. We’ll see.
Hope everyone is doing well out there.
