Hibernation

I wish!

Sometimes I think it would be really great if I could just crawl into a cave and hide and sleep until spring. I wouldn't miss the cold of winter, that's for sure.

I know that all the "holiday socializing" is getting to me, and there will be 4 days of that starting today. I'm just hanging on until Monday! I am not one of those people who gets all energized from being around others. Instead, I like to hibernate. Being around others can really drain my battery. Even if they're people I love!

I wish I didn't feel like socializing is such a chore--but I do, and I fear that it's just in my nature to think that way.

Tomorrow's agenda will also include attending the wake of my second cousin, who passed away Tuesday. The wake is being held on his birthday, of all things. The kindness of your prayers is appreciated for a big man who died too young. He would have turned 49 tomorrow.
