When the last guests left, I was upright — but zombie-like.
This morning, I rolled out of bed with a dull headache.
My groggy brain started reviewing every conversation from the night before.
Our dear friend had washed the dishes, but pieces of the party peeked out from every corner.
I walked around dazed…but happy that there were 2 boxes of Pumpkin Spiced Cheerios to serve for a fast breakfast.
…Now it’s mid-afternoon and the sun is shining. Everyone is helping.
Party baubles are getting packed away and the review tapes in my head are winding down.
Coffee serving #2 is nourishing my nerves.
I feel a sense of accomplishment and a waning headache.
I think, by the end of the day, I will spring back to normal.
