Back

We are back.

From a vacation that was everything a vacation should be. We are relaxed. Renewed. Reminded that yes, life can be ok. Reminded that hell yes, sometimes you just laugh because you want to. And it is ok. Not a snarky, self-depreciating gallows humor type hah, but a Laugh. A full-bellied, eyes-tearing, did I just snort? kind of laugh.

We remembered that life can be fun. And that we are fun. And that we are most fun when we are together. I was sad to see M go to work this morning. Not because I know we're both in for a doozy of a day, but because I wouldn't be spending the day with him.

Besides a quick check at the doppler radar to plan our days and a 5 minute morning scan of work email to make sure nothing too too crazy was happening, this morning will be the first action our computers have seen in over a week. I am beyond pleased with myself that I didn't twitter, blog or email my break away. Which has been known to happen.

Today is a new day. Lots of work to do - both professionally and personally. But I feel ready.

So ready.

Howdy y'all. I'm back.

So glad you had such a good time together, resting and relaxing and laughing. And good for you for taking a technology break, too - it always helps me remember who I am to get away from all this stuff for a while.

Hi, friend! Glad you're back, too :) And it sounds like your trip was wonderful and restorative, just as it should have been. (Yeah, I'm not smart enough to come up with that word - someone else used it in a comment on my vaca post!)

Are you miserable trying to get back in to the swing of things?? Regardless, I'm glad to "see" you.
