I forget that grieving takes up about 200% of your energy, and you have to do everything else with whatever's left over.
I forget that my energy was depleted seven months ago, and I get involved with things, and then I am so tired that I can hardly move, and then I remember that I am running on way below empty.
I am really grateful that anyone even wants me to be involved with anything. But I have to remember: It will take ten times as long as and 20 times the energy that I anticipate.
