I've come to understand that I love to learn things. I used to think I was just sort of flaky.

We returned from our trip a couple days ago. I'm physically and mentally exhausted. Allergies are now kicking in. I have a lot of work to catch up on (as I was only able to do a portion of it remotely). My family member isn't doing any better (but also not really any worse). It's all pretty taxing.
