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.


  1. Yeah, I don't get much sympathy either when I mention that I'm going back to work (especially since I'll be working from home...all online...this semester). :D

    Oh what a wonderful profession we work in. Now if I only had 3 more weeks off I could accomplish all that I want to.

  2. I'm very envious of you. A dream job?? One of these days I'm going to get me one of those!! For now, it's a job. Or two actually. To pay the bills.

    Wow. 82 books!! How cool is that?

  3. I sympathize with you. I too must end my 10 weeks off and head back to my job as elementary media specialist. But just think...Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are right around the corner. LOL.....
    Maybe you will still have a few of those 82 books to read.

    Have a wonderful BTS.

  4. Well if it's any consolation you don't get much sympathy when you have to go back after three weeks either. I'm finding that out.

    82 books! I wish. But I have committed myself to trying to get through what I have on my shelves.
