Burned out

I'm running pretty hard into the introvert wall this week. It's been a really social and taxing couple of weeks and now I just want to pretend to be a hermit. My job is extremely social, so this takes more energy from me than I would like leaving little left for anything other than playing with cats and hiding behind a book. Oddly (and fortunately), hanging out with my husband is recharging even when I need to be alone. I think it's because he makes me laugh like a fool.

partners rock. and I get it. Matt's the same way (energy wise)

I think there should be a partner appreciation dance. That sounds like a fun thing to do.

I hit that wall a lot too. Fortunately I have a lot of remote meetings where I can be on a call and hiding at the same time. I still have to talk to people, but I don't have to be close enough to smack them (which has it's disadvantages too).

Ah, the joys of smacking. But yes, remote conferences are far less draining.
