It is like this each year as we end up a school year (crazy, that is!), but I think it is wearing on me even more this year for two reasons:
1. The group that I have right now is rarely ever able to occupy themselves. At this point in the year, they should be a little more independent, but they're just....not....this year. It is just the personality of the group I have.
2. Knowing that I have to sort all my 'stuff' out is draining. Yes, I'm glad that I have a new position and that I don't have to actually pack it all up, but still--that's MY stuff, and I hate to have to go through it all.
3. OK, I know this is more than two, but also add to the mix that I'm having to prepare for classes, etc., it is just draining! Thankfully Chris has been a HUGE help and is understanding when I don't have much energy for much more than the basics. Though I still feel guilty!!
OK, back out the door to Emory! Just thought I'd pop in and let you know I'm still among the living!
