It’s hard to go back to work after a great vacation. Everyone felt that way. I tried to psych myself out by telling myself “It’s Fun. I like to go to work”. And the daily horoscope was a 9 out 10 so it should have been ok. But it didn’t work. Just a blah day. Even Maggie said it didn’t work for her. And Bob said he had a temper tantrum over helping fix his parents bathroom fan. It’s an ugly task with lots of backseat commentary. At work, I discovered that slices of toast are more expensive than bread for a sandwich. It’s 45 cents per ounce if I had gotten some meat to go with the bread and was a dollar a slice for the plain bread.
But the worst of all was discovering that everything got screwed up and we don’t have a booth at the maker faire. They did give me some free admission codes and a promise of a great spot next year. And it does mean I don’t have to work really hard this week putting stuff together. And I do think we have started thinking through a great display for school visits next year. So not all is lost.
This evening to celebrate the start of a new week, Bob, Kat, and I went out for dinner. It was very irresponsible and we all had a nice time. Somewhat subdued as all relaxed after our first day back at work. It was a great vacation and all were mourning it’s passing.
