Finding my groove back
It's like the first day of school all over again. Spell #thatawkwardmoment please...
Went back to work today after a month-long vacay and it feels so weird in a major way. Not because I have more than a thousand unopened emails to deal with, but because I feel more like a lost puppy struggling to get my groove back.
"Where are my files?"
"Which folder did I save that one again?"
"Who's that person handling this account? Really can't remember."
"Why do I feel so sleepy at 11AM?"
I've been asking too much mindless questions and saying endless sorry's for my unbelievable slowness since this morning that it's almost embarrassing. Probably left both my brain and work mojo somewhere in the beach back at home. Thank goodness for the kindest colleagues who patiently tell me to just take my time until I re-figure things out. Obviously rested and relaxed way too long for my own good.
Have you ever felt this way at work after a looooong break? :(
Excuse me please while I get my fifth cup of coffee for the day. Just hope I still have my job when this day ends. Ugh.
