12 signs you weren’t ready to return from Winter Break


No matter who you are or what you do, we can all agree on one thing — two weeks really wasn’t long enough.

1. Your forgot what an alarm clock is.

Isn’t your body suppose to tell you when to wake up anyway? There shouldn’t be a need for this hunk of metal!

2. You still think it is acceptable to stay up late watching a whole season on Netflix.

It’s hard to break up from any relationship, even if it is just with your media.


3. Despite the fact your fridge is empty, you’re in denial and refuse to go to the grocery store.

I mean, we ate so much over the break we can probably go the whole year without eating, right?


4. You don’t know what day of the week it is.

Is it Friday yet?

The first week back is a one-day week, or that is at least what my conscience told me.


5.  You missed trash day.

Don’t worry, it will just sit in your driveway mocking you until next week.


7. Even the smallest tasks seem exhausting.

Pull yourself together

How did you ever manage to be a taxi driver, chef, employee of the month, get your homework and whatever else you use to accomplish daily?


8. Every morning in your house looks a little like this.

Freaky Friday

Of course, you can’t really blame your kids for trying to prolong their vacation even if it only means by a few seconds.


9. You’re still writing 2013 on things.

I’m sure you’ll get it right by the time it is 2015.


10.  Your to do list seems to have tripled over break.

Really? Did you use to do all of that? Maybe you really were mutant or supermom.


11. It feels like everyone is asking you to do something you don’t want to do.

Sorry I tried to care

You could ignore all the emails, mail and phone calls over break, but now people expect you to pick up.


12. You’re already counting down the days until the next big break.


Just remember, it’s only about 90 days until Spring Break. You can make it!
