We’re all tired tonight. Not because we didn’t sleep well last night, but because we actually went somewhere, did something, saw someone today. I’m finding that after a year of staying mostly at home and going places with just us, being social takes a lot of energy.
We left the house a little before 11:00 this morning and didn’t get back until after 5:00 this evening. After a slow pile out from the car, everyone retreated to their resting spot of choice:
Hubby with his bicycles in the garage
Kids nestled into bean bags
Dog sprawled out in the sunny window
Me with my legs up on the couch
In a little while, the house will come to life again as energy returns to each of us. But for a little while, all is quiet and calm.
