madness takes its toll...

The newspapers reckon that today is the most depressing day of the year - the day when everyone goes back to work after Christmas holidays. I'm not sure I agree. I have pretty much had enough of eating and drinking and socialising and am actually quite happy to be sitting at my desk doing my own thing.
"There it is," I hear you say. "Proof once again that she is stark, raving mad!".
Hm, the mere fact that I can hear you say this is proof enough of that in itself, don't you think? But let's not go into that right now.

The point is, I am actually quite happy to get back to some semblance of normality. I like routine. I find it comforting.
I put it down to my German heritage.
Rules too. I like rules. Well, guidelines more than rules. I follow rules because it is easier to do so. It's what makes me the dependable person I am. 'Diligent' would be a word that has been used to describe me many times over the years.
Of course, this all only applies if I actually agree with the rules, and if they suit me.
After all, my blood is only half-German, lol!

So I'm back at work and lilfe has returned to normal, except... where the hell is everybody? Is Blogland still on holiday or what?!

Talk to me, people!

On a completely separate note: Do you ever feel like you're an imposter in reality? I just had that sensation in a big way... like what the hell am I doing here???.
And people actually take me seriously sometimes, especially at work.
Scary! I mean really... Shouldn't you be asking someone who knows what they're talking about?

Hi Terri-I am here!!! I am here!!! Let's talk!! I love your new blog look. I like guide lines rules okay sometimes. heehe ;)

Terri said...

Beadinggal thank you for rescuing what's left of my sanity lol! Glad u like the new look. I was really getting sick of all that pink! So I fiddled & fiddled and voila, this was the result. Kids & hubby had to feed themselves last night because of it. They survived... who knew Cornflakes could be eaten for supper..?lol!

beadinggalinMS said...

Cornflakes for supper is yummie yummie!! That sounds like a good idea for tonight, no cooking!! :)

Terri said...

Glad to be of assistance. My lot are getting leftovers from yesterday's lunch tonight although they don't know it yet, mwahaha!

Lori said...

I go back to work tomorrow Im ready for it. Cornflakes rule!!!

Terri said...

Why Miss Lori so good to hear from you! Looks like you and your evil twin are keeping me company tonight :-) Oh wait, you're the evil one, aren't you? Oops. Enjoy work tomorrow!

Blogland has been quiet! Very depressing, actually. My post schedule is lighter in response. No use busting it if no one is around.

Jeff said...

I'm right here, Terri. :)
An imposter in reality? Hmm Let me think about that. hehe

It does seem like everyone is on some sort of blog hybernation, doesn't it?

Good to read ya, though.

Love the new banner across the top. Very nice.

I think that if you don't agree with the rule, it doesn't fully apply to you. Or at all; depends. For what it's worth, I had no holiday crap to deal with but I'm still glad to get it over with. Dealing with others' holiday crap is like breathing second hand smoke... just as bad.

Happy New Year to you!

While some of the papers have referred to yesterday as the worst day of the year, a recent report has said that the worst day of the year in the UK (would prob apply to Ireland and other parts of Europe too) is the 23rd January.

I posted an entry on it yesterday.

Anyway, I hope that yesterday wasn't depressing to you .

Terri said...

Jason perhaps I should've made my presence known then - I've been clicking maniacally on your link for the days hoping for some sign of life... ;-)

Jeff, yep. That little thought might deserve a whole post all of its own one day.

Ben the pic is part of one I took in Santorini. I love Picasa!

LiVEwIRe, I like the way you think, girl :-)

Reluctant Nomad, yesterday was OK for me. The 23rd is likely to be much worse - it's the day after we get back from our Ski holiday in France.
