Well cue in the music I have survived my first week back to work. I really love the fact that all things were back in normal shape. Everyone hadn’t really changed as much so getting back into the routine was easy.
Now the part I didn’t anticipate is how tired I have been. Like the type of tired where you wake up and forget where you are tired. I have been battling this all week. I have gone back to all of my vitamins that the doctor prescribed. I took a break until I knew how my body was healing. My doctor approved this for me. We wanted to get me at a base line to see where I was. So I am not sure if it’s a combination of that, having to be up at 545 in the morning or just my body trying to adjust me to normal life. Whatever it is I am totally over it.
I had a great week if you take the tiredness out. My job had a welcome back party for me and that was super nice and unexpected. To be honest I was expecting nothing but long emails and work to get through. So it was appreciated to feel missed. It took me over 45 minutes to remember all of my passwords. That was funny. By lunch time on my first day I had it down and I even got all of my items that I normally done by then. It was just weird. Another issue is that I am mellowing out more than I ever have in life. Like the type of mellow when your kids spell everything at the same time after you just mopped but you calmly just clean it up and walk away type of vibe. I find myself looking at myself like girl who are you?! I don’t recognize myself these days. It’s a good thing. It has to be the lower amount of hormones that I am experiencing. Whatever it is I feel like I am always sipping coffee in a good mood type of women.
Also I got braids in while I was off so a lot of people walked right past me and didn’t recognize me. That was funny. I gave it a day and then went to some of my colleagues and was like hey girl I am back. Hair can change you I suppose. No matter what small obstacles have occurred all I can say is I am glad to be back to work and hoping that this exhaustion will soon go away. I went to bed at almost 530 last night. I mean like real sleep none of that watching tv stuff either. Shout out to my boss who is super understanding during this transition. Its week 7 so one more week until physically I should be okay. It takes a year to get your body where you want it overall.
So its back to the normal grind, anniversary is over and time to get my kids focused for back to school. I am at least done with the back to school shopping so that is an A+ in my book. Have a great weekend and be on the continued lookout as more blogs come your way. August is going to be a great month. Don’t forget to enjoy the last moments of Summer. I have 2 more items to cross of my list but I am determined to be able to look back and say I had a good one. I hope the same for you.
