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.

  2. Oh, I hadn’t even considered this–how much energy it will take to be social and get back into a regular routine of leaving the house! I know that for myself going forward, I want to stay home more and do less. I like having more at home time, I’ve discovered. I don’t need quite as much as we’ve all had over the past year of course! But more than I allowed myself before…
