On the one hand it will be nice to have things back to normal, but on the other it's been a nice break. Being taken out of the ordinary for a bit is refreshing, but to someone who tends to cherish routine it's nice to get back into the usual. It felt good to be back at my desk, getting stuff going again, seeing the familiar work faces doing the familiar work things.
Still, I dream of a vacation. And I don't really even want to go anywhere. I'd just like a week off to hang out at home, get things done, and just relax in my sweat pants and oversize directv t-shirts. I have about a thousand of them thanks to work, and they are perfect for lazy Saturday mornings or Sunday afternoons with the PS2. I can really get a nice groove going with Guitar Hero in those t-shirts. Stand up, sit down, doesn't matter. Just jamming and having a good time.
After having guests over the weekend, the apartment is both nice and quiet, and horribly silent. I kinda miss company, but at the same time am glad to have a little space and quiet. I can read my book and blog and relax without worrying that I need to entertain someone. But it's fun to entertain. Still the quiet it soothing and just what I need at the end of my work day. I miss having someone to come home to, as I drove home Friday evening a lot more exciting than it usually is. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face. I guess I just can't make up my mind, but the nice thing is I don't have to.
Life is full of contradictions. People's needs are funny... we need a little of both sometimes. It's nice when you can get it!
