Do you ever get the blues after coming down from a really spectacular weekend or event? It seems that the older I get – the more down and depressed I become after I have a really awesome weekend. I can name the biggest and bestest times specifically: my wedding, my Aunt Donna’s 50th birthday, my mom’s 60th birthday, our three trips to Cape Cod (2008, 2010, 2011), and now…..I’ve got the serious blues after my cousin’s wedding events ended this past weekend.
There is something about being a grown-up, but acting like a kid, with all of your grown-up family members that just really makes me happy. My heart swells with joy thinking about it. We laugh until we cry when we are together. My stomach literally hurts for days after a weekend with my family. It’s quite possible that others do not think we are as hilarious or fun as we think we are, but that doesn’t matter. When we are all together – we ROCK.
I am so lucky to have such an incredible family – like THE MOST INCREDIBLE FAMILY – and I hate living so far away from them. Unfortunately though, I live where I live and right now I can’t change that. Perhaps it is for the best…perhaps if I lived right down the street from all of my family members, every time we got together it wouldn’t seem as special. And I wouldn’t want to change the feeling that I get when we are all together.
Do you ever feel this way after an amazing weekend with your family or friends? Or is it just me?
