Long Days and Long Nights


polarbearI love spending time with family but I always forget how tired it leaves me. Coming here is usually somewhat restful, starting off mornings slow watching cheesy morning TV with my mom with our tea and coffee while we wake up and plan out the day. This year things are different, stressed both emotionally and financially, and our girl time is now Mom, Amy and Dad time and Dad doesn’t gel with girl time. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the time spent with family but today I feel like the walking dead. I am exhausted from pulling together a Christmas season out of my limited resources to put a little spark of hope in to my parents lives. I am drained from pumping optimism in to a depressed father. I am worried about graduate school applications – the first deadline fell today. I am worn out from playing daughter and my mothers chaperone by day and working by night. All of these things are what they are and I will, as I always do, smile my way through them and work things out but for this singular solitary moment as I have a moment to myself I just wanted to share with you that I am exhausted and in need of a nap.
