We now take a moment away from writing about the Christmas trip to write about today.
Today is awful. Today is the first day back at work and if there was anywhere I wanted to be today, work isn’t that place. It’s never a good sign when I’m tempted to resort to violence toward my coworkers.
I should get a plant. Plants are calming, right?
Plus, I bet they’re great and heavy for throwing.
Today I didn’t get up to go to the gym because I didn’t fall asleep until after 12:30 this morning. 4:45 is too early to get out of bed on a Monday on the first day back after vacation after only four hours of sleep. No way was I getting out of bed.
Tonight I will go to Zumba and remember why I wasn’t supposed to have all that sugar when I was on vacation and why I was supposed to exercise every single day and I will sincerely regret the choices that I made.
Tonight I will sit and try to find pictures to put at my desk at work and try not to cry over how much I miss my family and how fat I look in pictures.
Today I will go to a meeting and try not to get too frustrated at the lack of progress that we’ve made over the last several meetings. And I’ll brainstorm ideas how I plan to do it differently once I pry my way into control of that committee.
Today I will submit work that I’m not comfortable submitting just so management can maintain their precious schedule.
This afternoon I will sit and listen to music while trying to remind myself the importance of the work that I do and why I find it enjoyable on days that are not the first day back from a wonderful vacation.
Tonight I will go to sleep praying that tomorrow will be a much better day than today.
