So yeah, I got married. It was fantastic. Over in a flash. I ate almost nothing of the amazing food we paid for, despite my best efforts to eat! Then the wife and I went away for a few days, no cell phone signal, no internet, just us, our dog, a river, some orchards, and some lovely scenery. It was wonderful.
The weird part is what we are calling the "postpartum depression"... we have spent two years engaged, more than a year planning the wedding, and also completed a major home renovation project, as well as managing the death of a friend, and me finding a new job, and...
... and now we don't have a huge and daunting To Do List. There are a couple of little things here and there, but we don't have the constant crush of things we must do right now!!, so we have time to just sit, be quiet, watch TV, etc. And we are finding it hard to do ANYTHING AT ALL.
We are just kinda mentally exhausted. My wife was beating herself up for staying in bed late yesterday (she works for herself, so sets her own schedule) and I told her that she shouldn't try to do really anything for at least two weeks. Go out to the dog park. Sit in a coffee shop and read a book all day. Sit on the beach. Do some laundry, or clean the fridge, or some other mindless task that makes you feel like you did something, but doesn't actually take any thought or brain power.
I figured we would be kinda out of it after the wedding. But this is just comical. We sat on the bed the other morning trying to figure out what to do, what order to do things in, whether we should do X, Y, or Z, and basically got nowhere and did none of the things. Just couldn't link the thoughts together in our brains!
We laughed, then went and helped my parents pack up books and prepare for their move.
My brainz is fried.
