Back to work time!

Yes the good old days of playing a housewife are over yet again!

After a 2 month sabbatical I start work again tomorrow. Its strange how the grass always feels greener on the other side!

While I was playing housewife last 2 months--getting up when I wanted to, eating, watching TV, reading and leading a perfectly envious life....I felt a certain something missing in life...the thrill, excitment, adventure of a worklife!!

And now that I am yet again about to step into the grind of corporate life have been cribbing..."why cant I have a few more days of playing housewife"!!?...

Hubby dear has obviously been calling me a "confused soul"....guess we humans are made that way....always wanting what we dont have!

So well, whether I like it or not...am back to playing the Consultant......and hoping the next 6 months are yet another experience in the series of many that life has offered!:-)

Yes you are 100 and 1 % right. Grass is always greener and more delectable on the other side. I really envy you coz you had a dream-like time whaling away as you wanted to whale through. Good luck for joining back to the same scheduled life

As they say "the grass is greener on the other side", all one needs is to be a happy 'bull' to be able to enjoy the grass on either side :)

.. or is it just the us, woman who are perennially confused. My husband keeps working serenely, almost with a saintly demeanour and attitude where as I go through a whirlwind of emotions and feel like quitting , every other day
