Overcast, cool, rainy temps 15
Very cool - and not in a good way. Doug and the kids have just headed out to go to Sutton, do some shopping. I think the kids are bored. But when their friends arrive tonight I think that'll get better. Funny, but I feel somehow responsible and guilty when they're bored.
I think it also doesn't help that for some reason I'm just exhausted. Can barely keep my eyes open. No energy. I think it's the stress of finishing the edit and finally being able to exhale...except still have things to do. Do while I've exhaled and sort of collapsed I still have to get up and do things. Like tomorrow...an event in Hudson, Quebec. Driving in to Montreal tonight after dinner...stay the night...and driving 45 minutes or so out to Hudson. Lovely place...and fun event.
They're very kind to take me out to lunch first, then speaking and reading at 2pm. It's at the Greenwood Centre for Living History, at 254 Main Road, Hudson. Should be home by 5 or 6pm. We've decided to stay the night in Montreal, then drive out Monday.
Wish I wasn't so tired, but I know this is natural, and just life. And will pass. Right now I dream of having a hot bubble bath, crawling into bed with diet ginger ale and a package of Social Teas. And watching Flipping Out, or Location, Location, or House Hunters International. And do nothing. For a week.
But I suspect many of you feel like that.
We have friends who've retired and once they finish reading the newspaper every day they don't know what to do. Like the kids, they're bored. Bored is never a problem for us.
