Back to Work


I did it. I left my child with my cousin and went to work. It was hard and I cried for a few minutes after driving away. I had one of those sobbing on the steering wheel moments and then I realised that I wasn't wearing waterproof mascara. I didn't want to ruin my eye makeup so I sucked it up and drove off. I'm too vain to show up at work with a tear streaked face. The day went pretty well, I loved seeing my old friends and I did not shed one tear at work (ok a few well-ups but otherwise I was good).

My work access codes weren't ready so I spent a few hours getting all of that together and went for coffee twice, lunch and vistited people I like. So this totaled up to 8 hours of socializing and no work. Nice huh? Plus I got a goal sharing bonus for 2007-a year in which I did not attend work for even one day. Ya gotta love sick leave benefits. And....my boss sent me a big bouquet of flowers-just for coming back. THAT almost broke me, flowers.

My cousin reports that Cade had a good day and she sent me an email mid day to keep me updated. That was FANTASTIC. It totally made me feel better and like I still knew what was going on with his day.

We put Cade to bed a few minutes ago and I miss him again. The evening passed so fast after we got home but we had fun.

So tomorrow is my Friday and I might actually squeeze in some work, if I can make room in my social schedule.

I'm so glad that Cade has a good place to go to and it was sweet of her to update you. nice about the work bonus! maybe you can put the money towards the child care deposit that you lost at the other place...these things usually work out for the best.

I'm glad your day went well! How thoughtful of your cousin to update you. I really think things worked out for the best in terms of Cade's childcare. And your workplace sounds great! Flowers from the boss? A bonus? That's a nice welcome back to work!
