Tired and Drained

The past couple of weeks have been really draining for me.  Lots of stuff going on, normal everyday stuff, but stuff, nonetheless.  Also, I had a classmate from high school who was murdered by her son a couple of weeks ago.  One of my good friend's mom (I was close to her mom too) died this week, her funeral is tomorrow.  Another friend from high school also lost her mom this week.  I tend to pick up on the stress of friends and family and take it on myself, so it makes me a very empathetic person (which is good), but it also makes me drained when a lot happens at once.

I have been trying to take care of myself.  I had a migraine for 3 days this week and tried to take it easy on housework and stuff.  Today was a school holiday, so I slept late, but then had a lot of catching up to do with the things I let slide this week.  I have been trying to eat well, but exercise has been non-existent.

Not sure where I'm going with this, just letting you know what's going on with me.  It's been hard to get on here and update as much as I want to.

Hugs to you - I am sorry for all of the losses in your life recently. I hope you can take a break and do something fun with your kids. I know when things get really stressful for me it helps to declare a fun day - and we do what ever my 6-year old wants to do!
