It’s been a busy weekend.
Who am I kidding? It’s always a busy weekend around these parts. Kids and partners and local relatives and friends and heart-family make it for a busy life. But, mostly, I like it that way.
We’ve been very social, and I’ve been doing it through a particularly nasty pain flare.
And so I’ve ended up over-peopled. People who know me well understand this. I get tired of the “introvert vs extrovert” thing that is so popular right now, but it also makes a lot of sense. I am a true introvert. I love people, and in small doses, I find their company refreshing and invigorating. But being with people means spending precious energy, energy that I can only get back by holing up and spending some quality time in my most important relationship. The one I have with myself. Without that time to recharge, without any other human contact, I fade.
So I think it’s going to be one of those days. I have to take my Daughter to school, and then I think I will hole up for a while. I might watch a movie, but when I get badly over-peopled, even a movie is too much human contact. I will probably do some creative work, or if the weather gets warm, I may go outside.
I’m going to hide for a bit, and I will come out feeling better. See you all later.
