I knew that I had overdrawn on my social checking account, but I didn't realize quite how much I had done so. October was fabulous, but busy, and by the end of last weekend, although there were loads of people who I owed social time, I just couldn't bring myself to motivate to make plans. So I spent most of last week working during the day and relaxing in the evenings. By the end of the week, I was feeling much restored, and then, of course, I set myself back 3 or 4 days at the party Saturday night (though it was delightful to see all of you who were able to make it). I took it easy Sunday, had a fairly mellow yesterday, and I think by tomorrow, I may be back on my feet. We'll see, though; I suspect it'll still be another couple of weeks before I'm back in proactive social mode! It doesn't hurt to hole up a bit now, anyway, in advance of the busy Thanksgiving - New Year holiday season.
