Day 2/366 – Reentry is hard!

1 Comment

Day 2 - January 2nd 2008
Reentry is hard!

After 12 days off filled with reading, knitting, napping, cooking, eating, relaxing, watching movies – you get the picture – I returned to work today. And while I woke up soooo excited to see my colleagues and hear about their holidays I soon realized that being at work involves actually doing work (I think my break may have made me a bit stupid). So at 3:00 pm, when I was ready for my nap, I decided that tonight would involve nothing more strenuous than drawing a bath, lifting my book and, if I am feeling super-motivated, watching Gossip Girl.

Tomorrow it’s back to kickin’ a** and taking names; after all work doesn’t do itself!

In other, very exciting news in 51 days I’ll be up in Freeport, ME (the way life should be) at SPA Knit & Spin – yay!

  1. I so know that feeling of finding yourself back at work! When you stay at home for a while and relax, doesn’t it start feeling like thats how life SHOULD be?
