I’m with you!  I went home to CT on Dec. 16th, landed back here in Ireland on the 2nd and today is my first day back to work. I couldn’t remember what time I needed to set my alarm for in order to get to the bus in time and I couldn’t remember the door code to my building when I got here!  I could  use another week off – post Christmas/post New Year’s for hanging around and actually doing nothing!!!

Hope your first day back goes well!

Tell me about it – my last day was the 18th!!!!!  I should have left for the office already but keep finding excuses to delay (like visiting WB.  Again.).  It’s going to be a looooooong day=(

Me. Yuck. I’ve had off since the 23rd. And the 21st and 22nd were cleaning/christmas party days at work.

I’ve been bummed for at least 3 days about coming back! Yuck.

I’m Queen Grouch today.  I have really unpleasant work tasks that have to be handled in January, some of which that have to be done this week….bah humbug.  Add that to the fact that I’ve been passed over for promotion a few years in a row after indications that I would be promoted, and you have a bitter bee here!

Ugh, I’ve been working every [week] day except Christmas and New Year’s.  I’m sad to be back because I haven’t had any time off haha

I haven’t had a whole lot of time off for the holidays.  It was especially annoying since my Fiance had over 2 weeks off from work!

I’ve only been off since 12/30 and it’s still really awful. I need to quit this stupid job. It makes me so hostile and a not nice person, but I have to fake it here so all the aggression gets turned on people who don’t deserve it, like my poor poor Fiance. It’s a bad scene these days.

EEK @ Kittyachi – sounds like MY old job.. Definately search around for another one before you go certifiably insane. I was almost there when I finally got a new one.

I only had a 3 1/2 day weekend, but I really don’t want to be here.  I went from Thanksgiving thru NY’s working at most 4 days a week, now it’s back to the 5 days of work a week reality.  Not fun at all.
