Well I have (almost) survived my first week back in the "real world." Best of all I will actually get a paycheck tomorrow too! I won't know how to act. Actually I have already been invited to go out with my neighbors tomorrow night so I'm sure it will come back to me quickly. It really does feel great to be a productive member of society again. And being back on a regular 8-5(ish), M-F schedule. For 6 months before being out of work completely, I was on 2nd shift and that was pretty deflating. I was working but still couldn't go out or see my friends much. I am a very sociable person and value going out with my friends as much as I love my downtime at home alone.
I actually haven't had much time alone lately. My sister-in-law and the kids are with me for awhile. Of course I love them but at times, they drive me crazy! This makes hosting for any "fun time" impossible at the moment too. I haven't really been pursuing any new adventures lately. I was very focused on finding a job first and foremost. Mission accomplished and hopefully as the summer draws near and the weather gets warm, those opportunities will be there.
I hope everyone has had a great week! Thank you for all the kind words and emails wishing me well. I know for certain that Rob has been a LOT more productive at work this week. And possibly others as well. Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I certainly am going to try!
