Back to Reality

Well, I have been on vacation since 5:00 PM on Dec 21st. It has been a good vacation. Hung out with some friends, went up north, saw my family, had xmas, went out and saw people that I haven’t seen in a while. My buddy that is back from Iraq came up one night to St. Cloud and we partied it up. Recovering from that, I watched a few movies I have been wanting to see, Superman Returns, The DaVinci Code, V for Vendetta, and some others. Then topped it off with a little New Year’s party and James Bond marathon today 🙂 – oh, and don’t forget I had to play a lot of Xbox 360, guitar and piano. I actually wrote a song and recorded it over the break – first time for everything. Maybe if I get some guts I’ll post it up for public consumption. I even took some time and pimped out my MySpace page – well, just changed the colors 🙂

As far as xmas gifts, I’d have to say, the best things? Bose Headphones (so I can jam out after 10 pm – yes!), Pajama Pants (can always use these), Beatles Love CD (blows my mind), Buffalo Wild Wings Gift Certificate (oh – heck yeah!) – oh and don’t forget the Jag – with the two shot glasses.

Throughout the vacation, I tried *not* to work. Its tough – I went on invisible on IM, didn’t VPN in, so if I wanted to check email I was forced to use Outlook Web, didn’t look at reports or worry too much about things. This was pretty much my first vacation since August of 2005 when I went to Chicago for a few days. It will be good to get back into the swing of things though, I’m already itching for it. People always say I should just go on a trip or something – well, I’ll save that for the next vacation 🙂

I hope everyone had a good 2006, and is ready to have a great 2007. It can only get better.

Heh, I had a similar-yet-different experience. I was on vacation from about 14th until today, except I spent my entire time doing some form of “work” or another (not always job related though). First I had to help pack Lis’ apartment, then get some last minute gifts, then spend x-mas with her family, then drive her up to MN and start getting her moved into my place. I need a vacation to recover from my vacation! 😛

It’s kinda funny, I’m actually looking forward to getting back to work simply because it’s a set schedule of known quantities. :: grins ::
