This week has been emotionally draining, in so many ways. EOGs have really zapped my energy, Mother's Day was something to try and get through, and well, isn't that enough. I'm so tired of dealing with my emotions, of sorting through them and trying to get past them.

So, yawn, I am thankful that school is almost out. Last year at this time I was dealing with the emotional fallout of the failed adoption, and I was looking forward to just resting and healing. This summer I think I need some peace. I learned that I really crave alone time, and summer really provides me time to recharge and rest. I'm looking forward to the time off.

I came home tonight from a really fun dinner and didn't know what I wanted to do. Did I want to go to bed, watch tv, or cuddle with my husband? I didn't know, because my head was so full of the emotional kind of talk that you can only have with women friends. There were so many thoughts and feelings bouncing around in my head that I had to get on the computer and veg. And then I saw the cute picture of Lucy and knew you could probably relate to being emotionally tired.

On another note, I posted about the new Quota thing at work that was suddenly removed today. Now I can blog again at school! Yay! I may not spend as much time on it as I would normally, but I'll still be able to pop around and check on you.

Off to bed, with some advil and my stuffed bear. It's a teddy bear night.
