What an awesome sendoff. I was so happy after it was over that I managed to keep momentum going long enough to clean up singlehandedly... Tomorrow morning all that awaits me is a sink of dishes. That’s how good this made me feel. I will miss my friends greatly, but knowing that I will be missed will give me strength. And it will keep me honest, as I keep in touch with all y’all. But really, I feel both energetic and drained... and as the endorphins wear off... that leaves “tired” in its wake.
So many good hugs, and ... it was just a great evening. Wow. I feel such an ache to leave this behind.
