Post-Vacation Blues

I've been away on vacation for the last twelve days. It's a gray rainy Monday morning and my first day back at work. What's worse, it's Daylight Savings Time. No wonder I feel tired, irritable, and am missing faraway places fervently.

At least I'm not the only person bummed out today. According to an article in the Globe and Mail, the first Monday after Daylight Savings Time sucks more than any Monday in the year: "In a number of recent studies, researchers have found that workers drive worse, work less and die more on the Monday after the switch to daylight time." Isn't it comforting to know that my doldrums and drop in productivity aren't completely my fault?

Anyway, it's gray and rainy and perfectly dreary outside, so to fend off my seasonal blues, I've been looking at Coach's spring offerings in pinks and dreaming of la vie en rose.
