Today was my first day back to work after a week-long vacation & it was really, really difficult. As much as I love vacations, I hate going back to work after they're over. *sigh*
I know things in the "real" world are stressful for everyone. Stressful for you and for me, but if I go to one more blog and have to read about it, I think I shall scream! I go to blogs to escape. I want to read great book reviews or hear about good things that are going on in peoples lives. I'm tired of political rants and people telling me who I should vote for. I wish people would just keep their opinions to themselves. And that's all I'm going to say about it.
I actually ended up getting off work early today. We were really slow, my mind was whirling from being back and I was having a horrible time consentrating. I don't know if I'm getting sick or if it's just an overabundance of stress, but I've felt weird all day. Most of the stress is from grief, I think. I haven't cried since finding out about D's passing, which makes me feel weird. I should cry, but I just don't have it in me at this point.
I'm also tired. Here I was, hoping I'd end up with a lot of sleep and I didn't. Now, I just feel whipped. I'd take a sleeping pill, but don't want to depend on them to help me sleep. I'll just suffer through and go on from there.
One good thing about today is that I was able to pick up Seduce me at Sunrise by Lisa Kleypas and Mr. Cavendish, I Presume by Julia Quinn. Two books I've very much been looking forward to. :) I also bought Heartmate by Robin D. Owens. I'll be reviewing that here shortly.
I've been thinking about friendship again. Feeling very blessed in the online friends I've accumulated over this past year or so. Wonderful things people have done for me and things I hope I'm able to do for them. Received a wonderful gift in the mail from Tracy. Was very happy to receive it. Thank you, Tracy! :)
I think I'll go write my review and then go read MC,IP. I need to escape for awhile. Night!
