The first day after a long vacation is always different than other workdays. You get to see your colleagues again and most of them ask you what you have been up to. For me, it wasn't any different today.
I didn't sleep well, but getting up at 5 am wasn't really a problem. I started the coffee brewer and went downstairs to collect the newspaper.
I arrived just before 6 am. Interestingly nobody was at the office, which I really enjoyed as it made it possible to check through the emails and Skype messages without interruption.
By 7 a new colleague showed up, which I was expecting as she started to work last week.
By 8 am everybody I work with (the most of the time) was there. And now, more than 10 hours later I am back home again.
As I expected, the workload didn't get smaller and it is almost worse than before my vacation.
At least I am full of motivation again. The only question that arises: how long will it last?
