Working Gal

I officially went back to work today!  Well, technically last night I went in for a few hours to help figure out where to put crap, and what to throw out.  Ahhh moving, how I hate you.  I'm planning on working three mornings this week and possible the same, or a little more, next week.  My hip is doing great, it's just the rest of my body needs to catch up.  Also, re-adjusting to working at an actual desk and chair, as opposed to sprawled on my couch with my feet on the coffee table, has already been a challenge.  I'm exhausted, to say the least.

It probably didn't help that I was woken at 4:30 by hordes of mosquitoes trying to kill Dom and I in our sleep.  Our bedroom walls/ceiling currently look like a crime scene from our revenge.

Going in to work today actually made me feel like a normal, contributing human being.  This past winter was so dependent, and so isolating.  As tiring as this is, it's pretty cool to be doing something again.

All By Myself

In a few days I will be traveling on a plane totally by myself since the operation (or well before).  I'm a little nervous, but don't think there is actually much to be worried about.  I'm at nearly 10 weeks post-op and the hip is getting stronger everyday.  I'm mostly concerned about the stairs getting on the plane, they're kind of steep and spaced far apart. 

I'm heading out for meetings, but going early to spend time with my godbabies!!  I can't wait!  I haven't seen these kids (and their parents, love them too), in months.  And, the last time I saw them was just before the replacement and the day after Dom's hand surgery.  EG., not the best time to have an enjoyable visit.

So, I haven't been back to work yet.  Which is a pretty long time.  It's been a combo of me taking my time and now my building is not open (new office building, yay!!).  I haven't worked since September and feel pretty nervous about getting back into that groove.  I'm worried that I'll be really uncomfortable in my two day long meetings coming up.

In other news, summer is coming!  We're getting the garden ready, and the greenhouse is getting full.  Can't wait to eat some fresh veggies from my backyard (well, fingers crossed we are successful).
