Going Out In A Blaze Of Glory

Or just burning out?

I've been meaning to check out "symptoms of burnout" for awhile, as I suspect that all of the adult parental units in this household may be suffering from it.

But what can you do?

He probably has "workplace burnout", and I wonder if I'm not experiencing some kind of "caregiver burnout".

I'm ever hopeful that once spring actually comes and the Convention is over that things will return to normal... but it's been so long since "normal", that I hardly remember what that looks like... ever hopeful, fast losing faith...

I used to think that a month-long Carribean Cruise would set things right, but it's long past 4 months, and quickly moving into the 6 month vacation bracket; and would it really matter? Life would be waiting for us when we got back.

Unrelenting, demanding, expectant.


And then the computer froze, and I had to shut down (improperly), restart and re-post. Maybe the Hewlett-Packard has it too...

  1. I can't offer you 6 month Caribbean cruise but we might be able to offer a couple of weeks in blighty. In an empty house at specific times later in the year, if that would work for you.

    Wish we could help a bit more.
