I just went back to work on Monday of last week… it was hard, too many emails, no motivation. It was a total downer. I worked from home on Tuesday because DH’s car was in the shop and we had a washing-machine repair guy coming… By Wednesday, I’d come down with something, but toughed it out at work anyway… Thursday and Friday I was out sick, and have done nothing but sleep this weekend… oh and stalk WeddingBee! I totally feel your pain! Good luck tomorrow!

Haha!  I think I had 300-something emails when I returned to work after 1.5 weeks off.  Welcome back to the real world!

Don’t even try getting caught up right away because everyone at work will have lots of questions about how your honeymoon went and stuff.  *sigh*

@luli29:  I guess that depends how much of a go-getter you are LOL.  I have a work laptop and can log in from home, so I contemplated logging in on Sunday night just to download all my emails but not actually to get any work done… but I decided to stretch out my vacation to the last minute instead.  😀

@luli29:  Yeah I know the feeling.  I take care of stuff right away, and seeing an empty inbox gives me more satisfaction than a normal human being should get from that…

I also got married on the 9th and went back to work last Tuesday. It was not pleasant! It made me wish I went on a honeymoon right away, but of course, if I did then I would be worrying about going back to work this week.

it was horrible!!! i came back to about 800 emails on my two systems, and it was not fun.

at least though every other minute im not sneaking on the web looking up wedding stuff (hence why im not around much unless its at night or on weekends) so i get more done.

slowly but surely im getting back to how i was pre-engagement and wedding planning LOL

10 days after our honeymoon we went to Disney for 5 days. We couldn’t handle the real world and we’re both self-employed. I’ve had the hardest time getting myself motivated to think about what my “next step” is. I’m really happy though to check in with the Bee throughout the day and see what other members are excited about and working on! It’s a great way to keep my brain satisfied with wedding stuffs!

I returned to work to 1200 emails and 47 voicemails… My “cover” did a crap job, and I’m just now digging myself out of the massive pile of work she left/caused me, 3 months later. 

But it was fun!
