When I left for my vacation, everyone told me that when I returned I would be relaxed and refreshed and ready to come back to work.  Oh, yes they were right - I was (and still am!) relaxed and refreshed.  But the ‘ready to come back to work’ thing?  Well, I’m still waiting for that to kick in…

Let’s put it this way:  when my alarm clock went off that first morning back not only did I not hit the snooze, I didn’t even recognize the sound.  Instead, I incorporated the alarm buzzer into my dreams and that’s when things took a nasty turn.  You know those horror movies when the scene is sweet and serene and suddenly it turns bad?  Well, as my alarm buzzed away, my wonderful island dream became a less than wonderful island-with-a-giant-bee nightmare.  And as the bee in my dream buzzed louder and louder, I began running.  When I finally woke up, tangled in a knot of sheets, that’s when the big Yea-Boo set in.  Yea!  It was just a nightmare!  What a relief!  No big bee with a stinger the size of a javelin.   And then Boo!  Vacation is over!  

Honestly, for a moment there, I sort of wanted the bee back…..
