Back to Reality… One Hour at a Time

It’s been over a week since I’ve been to the office… the formal office. I have a home office and I’ve done a few odds and ends for work since the holiday week began. But today, the 28th, is the first I’ve sat at my formal office desk. It’s a transition. Opened mail, paid bills, organized files… not much happening and I must admit I am really tired from all the serious partying. One more night — a gathering around the leftovers… I think I will head back early to avoid traffic and a winter storm that is slowly crossing New England.

I think “dipping” into the melee of work is best done, one or two hours at a time. Don’t you agree? But hark!!! I just remembered, the house is filled with wild children playing noisy video games on an X-Box machine. Sigh. There is no escape. I guess I will just stay put and drink more coffee!

Know how you feel. Have been cleaning all day, but still the stuff persists! Grandkids will be back tomorrow to explore their creative side with cray pas, paints and colored pencils. I have to admit I gave it all to them – and invited them back to play. What was I thinking? Then I get to babysit three of them at their house on wednesday. By New Years Eve, I should be either exhausted or totally wound up. Either way, it won’t be pretty…
