The Tuesday back to work after a holiday weekend is tough. No matter if you have 3 days off or 5 days off, the Tuesday back is always a doozy. There are more voicemail to answer, more emails to answer, more things that are pressing and need to be taken care of right away. And even though a long weekend is wonderful, the following week feels twice as long.
I am fortunate because I only work Monday through Wednesday. So when Monday is a holiday as it almost always is, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Martin Luther King Jr Day, I don't have to work, I get a 5 day weekend instead of my usual 4 day weekend and I get paid. Who doesn't love that?
And then today, in the midst of calls, voicemail, emails and more someone at my office bought me a cappuccino that I have been sipping on all afternoon. It is frothy, warm and delicious. Just the way cappuccino should be.
