Back to Work
I get no sympathy from family or friends when I sigh and let others know that I'm headed back to work next Friday. A ten week vacation seems more than sufficient to most people. Ten days or ten weeks or ten years...There is never quite enough time. I only managed to write twenty-five pages on my book and there are those eighty-two books I bought week before last still waiting for me. (Yes, that's 8-2, 82 books).
And it's not like I'm headed back to the chain gang. I work in my dream job and in six days I will be working in my dream job in my dream location. I get Christmas-belly-tingles when I think about it.
But there is something wonderful about all those empty blocks of time and it will soon be coming to an end.
