  1. Nice number of beers. Now go to sleep and catch up on what needs to get done.
    And don’t forget to breath.

  2. Welcome back! Deep breaths…

  3. Lists put things in such stark perspective don’t they?

    Hope the holiday was worth having 🙂

  4. I’m surprised you didn’t eat more than five gummy bears. I would have.

  5. Ahh, the after-vacation insanity. I know that one.

    Take a deep breath..
