Back to the old grind

I’ve returned to work after an enjoyable three-day weekend. The fun started on Friday, Honey’s birthday, when I took off from work and asked him how he wanted to spend the day. He chose swimming, so we went to the home of some friends and spent several hours goofing off and laughing in the pool.

That evening, we went to dinner with five friends. It was kind of an interesting mix of people that we knew well, but who knew each other very little or not at all. It definitely made for some exhilarating conversation as stories were shared and laughter ensued.

Saturday was a nice, boring day without much to do besides relax. We did rent The Number 23, but it was completely not what I expected and I didn’t enjoy it at all.

Sunday started with church, which was followed by a couple of meetings – one of which was the book club (I’ll write more about that later). After wrapping things up, we went to lunch with Karen and to see Evening. It stars Glenn Close and Meryl Streep, among several other fantastic actors, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

All good things must come to an end, as they say, so here I am back in the place that I like the least. It’s not the work that I despise… it’s some of the people I have to spend my day with. I’m trying to be gracious and loving, but it gets just a little harder all the time.

    Glad you had a nice 3 day weekend. :) I am enjoying my few extra days off (Saturday through Tuesday) and trying to do it in a guilt-free way. I was feeling kind of bad that I wasn’t earning more money but then I thought that the hourly rate I get is pretty much null compared to when I worked full time, and so we’re not benefitting financially THAT much and besides when it’s back to school, I will basically be going non-stop for the entire semester. Breaks are okay….I just keep tellin’ myself that. Try to have an enjoyable week, Brian!
