It's Monday: Welcome Back Reality

I am sitting here right now and it is starting to dawn on me that I really am back at work. My first clue is the fact that I am on the computer without a cigarette dangling from my lips. My second clue is that I am on the computer and not in bed at 10 in the morning. The final big clue is the fact that I am not in my house. Yes, I am definitely back at work or all my co-workers have started camping outside my bedroom door: reality hits hard.

I hope everyone had as great a holiday as I. Yes, there was a fight or two, but that is what family-gathering holidays are for. They bring us together with those we love and those we were cursed to share a name with. They are to remind us why we do not live in the same house anymore and why we only see each other on major holidays. They allow us to blow off steam on a safe target as well. One could say the fight is as much a part of thanksgiving as the turkey. The important thing is the next day after the fight and if that phone call is placed between the warriors. I am happy to say that the calls that mattered were made and the potholes in the road of family joy have been marked and will be avoided next time. Enough said on that…

Since it was a full vacation I am lost as to the status and affairs in the world right now. The updates will begin anew soon. Stay tuned and avoid the cliffs.

I had a hard time getting back into the swing of things, too. Sleeping late and not having to do anything at any particular time is NICE.

I am pleased to say there were NO fights in my family this year. I'm glad yours worked out amicably.:)

No fights? Not one? What is wrong with YOUR family? =P

Kanrei is no longer in his real house but in his virtual one. Welcome back.

P.S. I must have been gone too long because it took me three tries to remember my password.

Nope, nary a fight. One of the relatives didn't come to town. The whole family's nuts but as long as that one isn't around, the blood doesn't get let. LOL.
