Ugh. Going back to work after a vacation = DO NOT LIKE. Not the job itself--it's great as usual--but just the sorting through seven million emails, catching up on all the tasks, and sitting in a bunch of impromptu meetings. That plus jet lag means I'm really glad I came home in the middle of the week and it's already Friday.
Also, again thanks to the jet lag, I haven't been sleeping very well for the last few days. In France I was already not sleeping well because I was all disoriented time-wise, and then I started to adjust right before I came home so now I'm still all disoriented. I fall asleep no problem but then I keep waking up and that is really annoying. And plus when I wake up I then notice that I have to pee (this ALWAYS happens to me) so it's not like I wake up and can roll over and go right back to sleep... instead I get out of the warm cozy bed and have to go pee and then I'm all awake and it takes me awhile to fall back asleep.
So now I have to work and I'm tired. And that equals sort of grumpy. Except I'm trying to snap myself out of it, because really, it's the weekend and that means I can sleep as late as I want AND I don't have to work, so what is the point of being grumpy about this now?
Plus it is sunny and beautiful out, and it's supposed to stay that way all weekend, and even hit 80 degrees, and there is a drive to the mountains in our near future, and that is always lovely.
One more grump before I get over myself, speaking of long drives in 80-degree weather: the AC in our car seems to be broken. AGH.
OK, now I'm ready to get over it. Can you help? What is making you not-grumpy these days?
