Marilee is coming over at one -- that's good as I've been missing her. I'm reeling from the strain of having visitors Thursday-Friday-Saturday and now today! All I do is nothing, really, but it still tires me out. I suppose it was running about cleaning and doing laundry in my pathetic way that makes me tired before people arrive, then I'm such an introvert that being with anyone is exhausting. Of course, no one who knows me would believe that -- in fact I remember saying to a friend when we were 12 years old, "I'm shy," which caused her to burst out laughing. Be that as it may, I'm not a person who recharges energy in a crowd; I require gobs of alone-ness to be happy. I love to see friends, then I have to crawl into my hole again. Hard - considering that until I was about 36 I had more energy than the next 5 people put together, and took it for granted.
