Back to Work

Well, it was fun and relaxing, but the Winter Break officially ends today and it’s time to get back to the routine of getting up and going to work.

I actually got a lot of non-work work done here at the house, including getting the last of the pictures hung, getting the office organized, some yard work done, and I even got caught up on my reading and writing. I had a great time visiting Boatboy in Tampa (although we both agree that there are better ways to spend money than going to trendy tapas-style restaurants that serve appetizers as entrees and charge you way too much to be tragically hip), and I had a nice Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with good friends. Oh, yeah, and there was some blogging done, too.

And above all, I’m glad to have a job to go back to; a lot of people I know are facing tough times. So, as much as we may moan about the routine of the daily grind and the commute (here’s hoping they’ve finished the re-paving on Old Cutler Road), it’s better than the alternative.
