emotionally drained

It seems like it came from every angle.

An invite to a friends annual christmas party.  I accepted this year after declining last year.  It’s already apparent that Christmas is going to be no easier, maybe even more difficult than last year.  Padded in the front by her b-day and in the back by our anniversary it’s a very difficult few weeks.  Simply accepting the invite was a challenge.  I’ve thought about going back and declining but I really just need to go and get through it.  It’s just one more thing…right??? Ugh!

Cari’s sister gets married in less than a month.  Lil man will be dressed in a mini-tux (SUPER CUTE) and princess will be in an adorable flower girl dress.  I know this event will be tough.  I can only imagine the emotions her sister has and will continue to experience.   I’ve tried not to think too much about it.  My brothers wedding was tough but I guarantee this one will present it’s own challenges.

We’ve been sick this past week.  I don’t know when it started but hopefully it’s coming to an end especially since we have a month full of weddings on the horizon.  I barely got off the couch Wednesday and definitely didn’t get any work done.  Thursday was a little better but both nights, and even Tuesday night, I hardly slept.  I had a fever as well as a sore throat that made me cringe when I swallowed.  She seemed to have something similar too and is still fighting it today.  I think he avoided most of it but he’s been coughing a bit.

Then the one that really drained me.  I recently agreed to open up my private life to a complete stranger for a short period of time.  It started out with a random request, then turned into a number of meetings and e-mails, and culminated yesterday with an emotion-filled conversation over lunch.  I left thoroughly exhausted.  I was drained.  The final outcome is yet to be determined … but I’ll eventually post something about that
