I’m back at work today. The kid is back at daycare.
The decorations are down. The tree is put away. As the 2 year old mournfully told me this morning “Christmas is not coming anymore”.
Is it sad that I’m kind of relieved?
Don’t get me wrong, I love having a vacation and we had a nice one: lots of time for reading and good food and playing with the kid, but I find that I’m not really disappointed to be back at work today. I like our normal routine. I like my office and my work. I like going for long stretches of the day without talking about Thomas the Tank Engine.
I hope you are all settling back into your real life and this new year as well.
