So last week my excuse for foolish blog posts was that I was on vacation. This week my excuse is I’m back at work and trying to get into the swing of things. Does anybody have a problem with that? You there, in the back? You do? Or were you just shooing a fly? I thought so.
That by way of a silly introduction to a Post-Christmas Tired Tuesday post. I returned to work today, still grateful for having had yesterday off. Now I only had a four day week to get through! It was not until I sat down here and started typing just now that I remembered: in school on the first day back after Christmas vacation, everybody had on their new clothes they had just gotten for Christmas. How fun was that? Until I would realize I still wasn’t beautiful and popular, which I spent most of my childhood and adolescence hoping I would one day wake up to find myself.
Of course with school as well as with work, it did not take long to feel as if I had never left. Vacation? What vacation? When is the next one? I looked at the calendar and counted the full weeks till a three day weekend. Far too many. However, I do have a few discretionary days to take. I may treat myself to a Monday off in February or March. I will probably write a blog post about it.
All things considered, it was not a heinous first day back at work. Some of the usual annoyances annoyed, but some of the usual amusements amused, and it was nice to see my work friends again. I do like having friends. I’m still not beautiful, but now enough people talk to me that I can at least pretend I’m popular. Happy Tuesday everyone, and I hope you are all recovering from any post-holiday blahs you may have.
