Social Engagements, especially parties, are work for me.

This weekend we had a few social engagements, including a party late on Saturday and a birthday party in the evening Sunday.  I tend to love coffees and smaller/shorter engagements, but larger gatherings where there is a lot of small talk with people I’ve never met before or haven’t seen in awhile, it is draining, especiallly two nights in a row.  If I am honest with myself, these engagements are work and not highly enjoyable for me.  Honestly, because work pays the bills, I’d probably rather be at work.  But the thing is, having friends and having a social wife means having to put a smile on my face and fighting through these things the best I can.  All part of the trade-off of live.  But I am paying the price for it today (Monday), though.  🙂
