Last week was a very emotional exhausting week. I'm still recovering.
Late Tuesday morning, we got a call that my husband's grandmother was in the hospital. We raced to make arrangements to travel up there, and began our trip as quickly as possible. We didn't make it in time, but we stayed there through Friday for the funeral and traveled home on Saturday.
Despite the unfortunate circumstances, we had a good trip. We got to see a lot of family members on both sides, which was very nice. I got to meet my new nephew, finally.
Of course, Saturday was the day where the new place I think of as "home" was invaded and attacked by white supremacists. I spent our time traveling on Saturday glued to my Twitter feed as the events unraveled. I'm still in shock. I have the "not in my backyard" syndrome. Charlottesville is so quiet, peaceful, safe and diverse.
I've been struggling with some fatigue this week and it is inhibiting my ability to catch up on things. I think my fatigue is a combination of the emotional events of last week, abundant social interaction, drastic changes in my normal diet for a period of time, etc... But I'm starting to feel better today.
I've got too many things going on right now, and I'm struggling to figure out how to do everything I want to do. I fear I may need to cut some stuff out, but I can never decide on what...
