I've only worked a half day (12/31) since 12/21, so today is my first full day back in the office since before the holidays, and it's really sinking in that all the time off and festivities are over. It is also reminding me how loathsome I find my job to be, and how badly I want a change.
Also, I miss my kid. I enjoyed all the time we spent together while his mama and I were off work, and that's just making it harder to be away from him all day.

I can't begin to express how badly I want to be self employed. I know it's not a panacea for my work-related complaints, but I hate working for someone else. Problem is, the things I'm qualified to do don't really lend themselves to starting my own business, and I've yet to come upon something that is both lucrative and interesting enough to start doing just for the sake of being an entrepreneur.
