No I’m just wallowing…

But I’m a teacher, so I actually have to do work to prepare to go back to work.  Yuck.

@guitargirl: Have a glass of wine 😉

@JaneyD: The preparation for going back was one reason why I left teaching. It’s yuk, hated it!

I don’t have it too bad this time around. I have been surprised to hear that there are others who feel a bit down about having to go back to work after time off. I thought I was the only one!

I plan on bribing myself. I am rewarding myself with a venti latte from starbucks in the morning, and then having something yummy for lunch, and trying to listen to good music in my office if i can! Sigh. Working is the pits, isn’t it?

I have had two weeks off and have to go back tomorrow too. WHAAAAA!!!! My only advice is to do absolutely NOTHING today! That will balance out all the work tomorrow???? That’s what I’m doing!

I’m thinking of it as, we need money to get a house, so I’m furthering our house plans by going back to work 🙂

@ktbrady: That’s a good idea.  I hate Mondays, and although I didn’t have 10 days off, I did take last Monday as a personal day and only had a 3 day week last week so this week is going to stink.  Maybe rewarding myself will make Monday less depressing.

Haha I don’t really have any cure for it.  I don’t want to go back because pretty much everyone will be in the office and I will actually have to do work now (if there is any)!

I am in the same boat as all of you ladies.  And to make it worse, FI has all winter off from his job, and so does his Best Friends- who all live on our street!  So they are all enjoying beers and football and I am wallowing in self-pity… and preparing for the two classes that I have to take this semester along with my regular work…I am a goal-oriented girl so I am mapping out my work-outs for the week, and may indulge in a mimosa or glass of wine 🙂

Yep, I called a friend and made lunch break plans for tomorrow.  A little mid-day reward and something to look forward to.

Yeah, I’ve had the past week off and I go back to work on Tuesday.  I don’t want go back to work either.

I am planning on making melted snowman cookies on Monday to bring in on Tuesday.  It will somewhat get me through the day because I’ll be excited about sending the email out to everyone to come get it.   Also, I know for me, there will be less people at work on Tuesday, so odds are most of us at work will be doing a lot of chit-chat about how we spent our vacation.  I probably won’t get a lot of work done.

Here’s a pic of melted snowman cookies and here’s the link.

@ttn133: Those are adorable!  I’m sure there will be a lot of chit chat at my work this week!

I wish! I don’t go back to school until the 10th (and I work for the university, so I’m off work as well), and my sleep schedule is so messed up right now that I am going to hate everything about going back.

The one silver lining (and I guess you could call it a bribe) is that the weekend after I go back I’m going up to Chicago with my best friend for the Paper-Source wedding invite workshop! So I have something fun to look forward to the weekend after I go back!
