- I have to actually do work again
- I feel compelled to restart my daily schedule
- I have returned to eating stuff other than cheese, cheese curds, and tubes of meat
- my spousal unit is my only audience for jokes, and she's long since learned to ignore me
- my house is considerably less cool than it was for my friends' visit
- I no longer have to make sure I'm wearing pants or have shut the bathroom door
This is what it must be like for soldiers returning from distant lands.
