I am back to work. I have been at work for the last week and a half, and though I am glad to be making money again, work is driving me nuts. Remember when I was so anxious to get back to work? What the hell was I thinking? It seems that in the time I was out, the entire work environment has changed. Aside from my boss who I rarely ever see anymore, the people I work with used to be so easy to get along with. Now it seems that everyone is bitchy and moody and now it is almost uncomfortable to be at work. I never know who is going to have an attitude one day and who isn't. I am minding my own business and getting my work done, but work was much more enjoyable when everyone was getting along. Now I feel like I just don't fit in anymore.
Summer has come to Chicago and we have been having 90 degree days. The sun is shining and all I want to do is go to a beach and swim. But instead Leland and I have been doing yard/house work. We spent last weekend powerwashing and sealing our deck. Usually we put off all house/yard work until the last possible minute, but we have been trying to change that. So we decided to do the deck work when it was a million degrees outside. Now that it is all done, the deck looks great.
My pelvis is feeling great and I almost have no pain whatsoever. Occassionally I'll get a little sore near the end of the day, but for the most part I am walking normally, can do some lower body exercises, and can go up and down stairs without any pain. This makes me all kinds of happy. Now that I am nearly back to normal I am working on being a productive human being again. My goal is to do one thing every day that makes me feel good about myself. Yesterday I did house work, and though I don't like it, I was glad to be able to help Leland around the house again. Today I plan on doing some more house work and also do some writing. Hopefully all of the little things will help to make a big difference in my attitude. Because I am a happy person. And even though I am surrounded by miserable people while I am at work, I really don't want to join their club.
