Back to Work

My long 8-week medical leave will probably come to an end next week.  I see the doctor on Monday, and I should be going back to work on Tuesday.

To tell the truth, I don't really want to go back very bad.  I feel like my leave wasn't very restful at all.  Too much going on!  Hubby bought a brand-new Toyota 4Runner (and I had to sign papers only 6 days after surgery), Bobby started his job the same week I had surgery and he lived at home for a few weeks, Ricky moved from one apartment to another in Auburn ('though I didn't help), Bobby moved from Auburn to a new apartment here, his new cat came to live with us for awhile, and his old cat did not like it one bit!  Mega-cat fights day and night!

Then there were the trips to Birmingham — first for a checkup on the surgery, then to see the thyroid doctor and then to have the biopsies.  In the middle of all that, I caught this horrendous cold which hasn't relinquished its hold on me yet (and now Bob has it, too).  The constant coughing threw my back out, but, in the meantime, I bought a new washer and dryer so Bobby could have the old one...

And, on top of all that, I have spent every scrap of energy I did have on work.  I put in more than 80 hours of work while I was on leave and, consequently, didn't get any of the little projects done that I had hoped to.  And now I have to go back to work for real...

Poor me!

8 weeks is really not that long. And I find antibiotics can really knock the life out of you too.
