The computer screen is a blur, the office is way too quiet – just typing could cause a migraine and everything is moving so slowly. It’s only 10AM and I’m already thinking about lunch. It’s a tossup between a sumo salad and sushi, because it felt impossible to make my own lunch this morning, again. ARGHH!
I’ve been back at work for 2 days after a week off and it’s taking me a while to get back into the swing of things. You know, they say it takes a day for every hour on a plane to get over jet lag – I reckon there has to be a similar equation for getting over a week off work.
- A long weekend - 1 day
- A week off work - 3 days
- And 2 weeks off work requires an additional week off
You should be rested and ready to go after a break, but instead it just slows you down. A friend of mine believes she has it down packed now. The day before she returns to work she prepares meals for the first week and gets all the washing done, she also makes two days worth of lunches – removing some of the evening chores helps to ease her back into it. It sounds good in theory but I don’t know if I’d like to spend the last day of my holidays doing chores.
