Too Much People

A few weeks ago Babycakes and I had a playdate with some friends. The other little girl had one of those plastic Flinstones-style cars, that kids have had for generations.

Babycakes was driving and the other little girl wanted to play also, so she started climbing in the side. They almost fit, but not quite. "Too much people!" Babycakes whined, as she was squished against the hard plastic sides.

That is how I feel, right now. Too much people.

This is Babycake's birth month, and we did two birthday parties. One here where we live, and another in our original hometown. We started this because we thought it would be easier on our families...but apparently it isn't good enough for some people.

*insert long family drama here*

Thankfully, along with being tired I am also angry. I say thankfully because for a long time I was just tired. And anger is slightly energizing.
I am thankful that there is a part of me that realizes I have done everything I can and am at my limit, and am getting better at vocalizing and pointing out that limit.

I am thankful that I was able to enjoy my time with those who did understand our conundrum.

Anyway. That's what's up with me at the moment. I am suffering from too much people.

I want to lock myself in the bathroom with bath salts and a glass of wine and a good book and just have 30 minutes to myself.

Too much people. Time to get back to myself.


  1. I'm totally going to start using this.
    Also, the fact that you even do 2 parties is 1 too many for me. You're way nicer than me. Show up to the ONE I'm hosting or schedule a skype date, because ain't nobody got time for that.

  2. I frequently suffer from too much people even without any associated drama. I need a lot of time alone to recharge.

    Sorry for the drama. One of my mantras is you can't please everyone so you might as well please yourself.
