U2 Said It Best

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

I am pretty sure that they were singing about the day before having to go back to work after an extended break.  

I haven't been at my desk since last Wednesday, like many others in the corporate world.  The last four days have been spent doing two of the things which mark the start of a new year; drinking until your tongue goes numb with your friends and taking down the holiday decorations because the tree is starting to become a fire hazard.  But tomorrow I once again don "work" attire and answer e-mails because that is what they pay me to do.

But I don't want to.

Sure, I could stay home and continue to watch "Heroes" until NetFlix refuses to send me any more DVD's.  But I am sure muscle atrophy would set in and I don't have the upper body strength to pull off a wheel chair.  And I'm not old enough to qualify for a Medicare subsidized Rascal.

So tomorrow I guess I'll go to work.  I just hope there isn't a lot going on.

But who am I kidding?

I agree.

You don't have the upperbody strength for a wheelchair.

AND, going back after a long break sucks.

BUT, not as much as having no money.

I can't wait to have time off of work. Christmas is always when I start to want a desk job.

I've worked retail and office - and I'll be honest, I quite often miss the retail.
