Post Vacation Dread

My (newish) job has a wonderful perk (come to think of it so did my old job)...time off. I took two vacation days before Christmas because J's daycare was closed and then the university closed for the week between Christmas and New Years. What a wonderful gift they give to us all! The unspoken downside to all of this is the terrible feeling when you have to go back. Just when you feel like you've gotten your "at home" routine into a nice rythm and vacation is starting to feel like ordinary life it's time to let the alarm clock be in charge of when you wake up, time to scarf breakfast in 10 minutes rather than eat 3 breakfasts between 7am and 11am, it's time to put on dress pants again.

Sunday dread is bad enough...dreading the next vacation dread is brutal.
