Today is Monday. Today felt like Monday. Things are finally starting to go back to normal- somewhat. Last week was such an adjustment. And so compared to last Monday, today was a Saturday!!
Last Monday was rough. It was a major lesson in appreciation, understanding, and communication. I am really glad last Monday didn't repeat this Monday.
I had been gone for a week and returned last Sunday (sorry for the week off, folks, last week was a definite adjustment!). I was soooo tired. Sunday I slept most of the day. The little errands we did run I was in a daze and walked around like a zombie. The problem was Bryce had an understanding that I would come back ready to basically take over (which I totally wish I could have!!) and though I had thanked him, felt under appreciated. I understand, having been in his shoes, how that return feels a little lack luster. I felt I had showed him understanding and appreciation. But somehow, we lacked the communication- I had not explained to him well enough that I felt exhausted and couldn't function. He had not communicated to me that he needed me to appreciate him or how he was feeling.
