But I am rapidly losing my enthusiasm for people. I think it is because I’ve been working so much: apparently, I have a limited store of social niceness and I’m using it all up on work. Add required social occasions to that mix and the visit of a sister who wants to spend time with me and I just want to not be around anybody at all.
I think tiredness is contributing as well. The husband is mending submarines for a little bit and has a one and half hour commute each way – he starts at 6.30 so we get up at 4.30.
Do all hospitality/tourism people get burned out at this time of year? I think we must do, just from sheer people overload.
