Well I have been getting ready to go back to work... Actually looking forward to it. Today I spend the entire day preparing my papers, getting my syllabi re-worked and I don't mind telling you I am tired. I am not saying that I have been sedentary, but the analogy would be an object at rest and trying to get it moving again... That is me.

It is hard getting going again, but I am looking so forward to getting back into a routine again. Because, I love my job. I look forward to getting so much more done mentally, emotionally, physically.

Even though I didn't get to do any of the things I planned to do on my break, I learned a lot about myself... Like I don't need to retire anytime soon. I just need to slow down.Unlike most people that have jobs that go on day after day all year long, I have a job that affords me the opportunity to rejuvenate every year with several breaks throughout the year, I can go on for a long time. I can also set my schedule to do more or less as I feel from semester to semester; so as I see it, I have it pretty good and I can go on for a long, long time making this work for me.

And besides all of the above... I love my job (most of the time) minus the politics of course.

So Spring 2004 ready or not here we come!!!
