Sometimes I am just tired.   This weekend was extremely nice with my oldest daughter coming for a visit.   All told we had fifteen people at most meals.   I know how to cook for fifteen people pretty easily so that is not a big deal.   The interaction is awesome but wow, I don't realize how tired I can be at the end of such a weekend.   I wish daughter dear could just stay.   Sad to say goodbye.   It had been since the end of Christmas break since I last saw her.   We talk on the phone but it isn't quite the all.   But now she has gone back to school and I miss her.   This is sort of a blah, blah, blah post.   Not sure what my point is but now I want to go retreat somewhere for a bit.  Went to bed right after dinner to read and do basically nothing productive and now I have written the blah, blah, blah  post.   Sometimes I am just tired.   Just saying.  


  1. Understandable. You reveled in the joy of having
    Anna home, and now you have to give yourself time to miss her before you get back to "normal." (This is part of why I think --more and more-- that kids should stay at home, that I should have not moved away from home, and that my kids should be encouraged to marry someone from home, and that other kids should too. Sorry. I sound like a stick-in-the-mud. But it would solve a LOT of problems if extended families were geographically close.)

  2. Interesting thoughts and yes, sounds like a plan to me and not like a stick-in-the-mud. You have been through this a few more times than I have Susan. Sounds like seasoned thoughts to me.
