I love it. Really I do. I love the holidays and the change in the weather and the excuse to be cozy at any given moment. I love fall drinks at Starbucks, and pies, and hot chocolates on weekends shared with the people I care about.
But, I also hate the time all of that demands. It always seems like so much requires my attention during the fall. Work gets busier as the air earns its chill, NaNoWrimo holds me hostage, and then there are the birthdays and holidays that require my attention.
It’s exhausting, and I love it. But, did I mention it’s exhausting?
I have so many things I want to do, and so many of them simply get missed in the shuffle of everything else. And when I’m not actively working on something, odds are I’m asleep. Which, I can’t reasonably blame myself for sleeping, can I? I mean, I suppose I can, but it’s not very realistic. A girl’s gotta sleep sometime.
But, this is mostly just me complaining. I’ll survive. I always do.
How was your holiday weekend? I hope it was everything you wanted and you’re prepared to finish out the year strong!
