You’d think that having 11 days off from work over the holidays would leave me feeling recharged and happy and all that fun stuff. And I was pretty relaxed—I mean, I did just hang around the house:
(I’m also noticing the grammar error in the last bullet point. This is why we can’t have nice things.)
I went back to work on Wednesday, and it was a lot of “Happy New Year!” and “How was your break?” which I’m cool with, don’t get me wrong. But I don’t think I was mentally prepared to work again. It was pretty slow before we left for break, and everyone is kind of in the same boat—getting back into the swing of things and answering emails. (I came back to no new emails but three voicemails; two were alerts that the campus lost power—I also received texts and calls to my cell phone about that—and one was from an outside vendor and was an automated message.) So we were all looking forward to today because TGIF, right?
I spent all of last night catching up on ~three days of missed posts and comments. I felt bad that I was behind and not replying in a timely fashion. I had previously skimmed some of the posts on my phone, but it’s hard for me to comment on there, so I have to wait until I’m at my computer. So if you think I missed a new post of yours, drop it in the comments.
This was not a regularly scheduled post. I just wanted to word vomit for a second or two. We didn’t have the start to the new year that we wanted in my house because of something unexpected, so it’s just trying to get over that hump.
In addition to any miscellaneous posts, you can drop something funny or something nice that you read/saw/experienced in the comments. I also know I’m tardy to the party on this one, but you have my permission to go make some friends over at The Captain’s Speech. Paul is holding an online social mixer for bloggers, but I’m not 100% sure about the snacks/drinks situation.
