Do You Just Get Tired Also?

Maybe it is the demise of Daylight Savings Time. This year I think I can blame the election and the vitriol of it, both before and after.

DSD and I just returned from his parents' home in the central portion of the state. They are wonderful people, but I just don't relax when I am around his mother. I am always terrified I will spill something.

So I have been out of town for an extended amount of time for 3 of the last 5 weekends. And I'm tired.

And a little depressed. I look around at the stupid. I read glaring examples of it. I see it at work. I see it on TV (if I watch it).  I even see it in my college classes, people who can not (or do not) use the English language correctly in the written form, an instructor who is too lazy to even think of the weekly questions on her own.

But classes are winding up. Less than a month to go. And everyone who stops in here makes me smile. Especially those who comment. Hint. Hint.

So please be patient. With me. With each other.

And I will eventually get the post up about the rest of my DC trip and the lovely little (really, she is TINY) DC blogger I met in person!

I'm jealous that you actually got to meet someone in DC. So not fair. I was really looking forward to meeting you and everyone else.

I know what you mean about tired. There's so much crap going on right now that it's exhausting to even think about writing about all of it. I don't know where to begin.

Tired! So right. I've decided to give up thinking for awhile. One, it will make me less tired...I think. (Darn! There I go again) Two, non-thinkers seems to be the ones in power and I thought I would give it a try; see how the other half lives. But's a little more than half isn't it? I think so...

Don't let the stupid get you down! It's natural to feel tired in the face of it.

Have a smile on me. I kind of like Steven's idea but I would probably screw it up out of habit. I know the tired, and I think the time change had something to do with it. I also started working part time and I am not used to being on my feet all day. It is almost the holidays and maybe we will all feel better in the new year. Fingers crossed.

I did the same thing--traveled for most of the past four weeks--and I can hardly think straight today. Like every other progressive I know, I feel like I've been bitch-slapped and stomped on. But I ain't quittin'! Not on your life. The toughest road is still ahead. About two years ahead.

Rest, recuperate, catch up with yourself, and come back strong!
