With all of the time off I have had over the past 2 weeks, I have come to an interesting observation. How the hell do I manage to survive working 40 hours a week?!? During a normal work week I not only put in a 7-4 day, but I also have to cook, clean, do laundry, and squeeze in a little relaxation. When I'm home for 2-4 days, I do everything but the 8 hours at work, and my day is STILL full! WTF! Granted, I may watch a little more boob tube or surf a little more, but I STILL end up with a to-do list even after a nice break! It's like a never-ending cycle of chores that just keeps getting worse! I then start having thoughts like, "it's only 13 years until retirement." With the way that tasks seem to always keep piling up, I don't think I'll have a problem keeping busy.
