We have 2 overlapping family parties today. One with my extended family and one with my husband's extended family. I, of course, am not looking forward to either for many reasons, the main one being that I am an introvert by nature (although I can fake being an extrovert quite well) and that being around that many people exhausts me. Also, I'm in the middle of a personal pity party really and I'll have to answer the question "How are you?" many times today. Should I say I'm "fine" or "okay" when really I don't feel all that fine or okay? Wish me luck as I fake enthusiasm today and maybe I will fake it until I make it and have a happy day.
Oh, I hope so.
