Tired. Tired of family drama. Tired of work. Tired

I am burned out. I was going to post a vent b/c I am out of sorts. Instead, I'm going to shift and post good. I've just read and heard too much negative relationship stuff this week.

I'm at my wits end with some things in my life right now. My relationship with my father has fallen off, my little sister is busy creating epic family drama, mom is having the first health issues that remind me she is 71 not 41. TGs kids are going to drive me to madness.

I have been working at a frantic pace for a few months. It is good but I am tired. Deep, unyielding tired, every day.

I am grateful that tomorrow night I will be home on one of the longest nights of the year. I will sit on my deck with TG as the sun sets with someone very special.

TG says to me the other night "I am worried about you. You seem like you're in over your head". I told him I was. I promised him I would be OK and I will.

We talked a little more. I hung up and cried like a baby for a few minutes. He noticed. He said something. He was supportive. I needed that more than I knew.

The other night due to some weather delays we were in the same airport at the same time for 30 minutes. We found a quiet spot to talk and be in the same space. It was wonderful. Just the simple hug where we just fit together. The whole world around us melted away. I so needed that.

TG goes does little things that make all of this time on the road tolerable. I am very very lucky.

Earlier tonight I was feeling like I was dissatisfied with some things about my life with TG. I feel somewhat constrained by parts of my relationship. After getting off the phone with him, I realized that regardless of some changes I need to make, just hearing his voice makes me smile and its worth the effort to work on the balance in my individual and relationship self.

I am grateful that I survived it all so that this is current set of challenges and blessings.

I hear you, hexie. I too am dealing with a bunch of stuff solo and it's weighing on me.

I'm glad TG is there for you. It helps to have someone in your corner and yes, who will just hold you when you need it. Sometimes, that's really all you need to keep going.

Sending hugs to you.

Treasure this: The whole world around us melted away.

Full moon, super moon this weekend. Your life is very hectic. I get tired just reading about it!

Hope you are taking your vitamins.

There are times when it feels like you're a batter in a baseball game and there are three pitchers throwing from the mound at you...

Keep your chin up girl... It's difficult to get through these times but when you make it to the other side it's nice to chill with a drink and relish having made it through..
