06:30 pm: Back in the swing of things
After a (mostly) leisurely (mostly) vacation, we're back to our normal schedule. I'm back to work. Teddy's back at school, though he's now an "upstairs friend" (he's been moved to a reading group with older kids).

I'm lucky: I love my job. Even so, I've always preferred vacation. But this time, I'm actually sorta relieved to be back at work. I felt a bit at loose ends during my vacation. We didn't go anywhere (except to see my folks for Christmas) and didn't do much of anything (art projects with Teddy, a few little things around the house). I didn't want to do much of anything, 'cause this was my chance for down-time. My last vacation, after all, was spent packing and moving, and that (dear friends) is not a vacation, no matter what I put on my time card.

I couldn't have gone all that far anyway, both because the buck stops with me on our KM system (so I have to be somewhat available to answer any questions and fix any problems) and because I was sick most of my vacation. I think my body holds out 'til I can afford to rest, then all the germs come home to roost.

Oh... and we had a couple of major snow storms, too. So we stuck close to home. It was a bummer that Teddy was also sick, so we couldn't go out to frolic in the snow and make snowpeople and snow angels and have snowball fights.

I read a lot (mostly junk, but some stuff for work), slept a lot, just hung out. I checked off almost everything on my to-do list (still haven't done the photo tour, sorry), so I was a teeny tiny bit productive, but not very.

It felt good to just chill. But it feels good to be back to normal, too.

My body totally does the "attack you when you have a minute of downtime" trick too. I think it's nature's way of telling us not to take a break.....either that or telling us not to work so hard.

hope you're feeling better by now!

Thanks, I am. Now Teddy's sick again. Oh, the joys of preschool!
