Collapsing in Exhaustion

That’s it. I can officially say I survived the run-up to the holidays. The endless Christmas music, the pointless busy-ness, and–horror of horrors–the baked goods brought in by an assortment of co-workers, most of whom cannot bake. (I’d been sucking on one piece of candy for twenty minutes before I figured out it was supposed to be fudge.)

The workplace gift exchange was finally cancelled for lack of interest this year. I can’t say I’m sorry to see it go.

And that’s it. Done. Going home.

I can’t actually be sure whether I’m just too worn out to enjoy it after all the work, or if I’m just a garden variety cynic.

Either way, I’m out of fuel. Will track down a holiday Red Bull tomorrow.

    Some days all you can do is survive. Well done on making it. Hopefully things will be up from here.

  2. For some reason this post made me laugh. 🙂 I understand the cynicism and exhaustion when everyone around me seems to be jumping for joy. Thanks for sharing.
