So yesterday's time at work went really well. I was very happy with how it all turned out. It was really as if I had never left, except for quite a few new faces. I had fun laughing and complimenting the customers and actually DOING something you know? I've really missed being there and didn't even realize it. I'm glad I've made the decision to go back. Everybody was so nice and glad to have me back there ~ it felt so good.
I go back to work tonight again, but only for a small shift. I'm perfectly okay with that, because I don't think physically I could handle a really long one. Being on my feet that long would kill me at this point. I definitely need to work back up to that.
So I'm sitting in the morning sunlight on the porch drinking my coffee, blogging and watching the ducks in the pond. They're wild, but they come because they know we always have food out for them. We have one I call "Buddy" who's a mixed mallard duck and he's really unique looking. Sadly he's got a hurt foot but he spends a lot of time here where it's safe and he doesn't get hassled. I'm hoping that he'll heal before the spring is over with. He can still walk luckily and swim, so he can get to the food too. And of course the squirrels are always running around the yard trying to get at the corn too.
Right now I love my life. I have wildlife all around me, a beautiful backyard to watch, a great cup of coffee, my smokes, and I'm on Dtribe blogging. It's a nice and peaceful experience. There's no one here but me and the critters right now, and I'm perfectly okay with that. 🙂
Zachary brought his report card home yesterday and it was outstanding! I'm so proud of him. He got one Satisfactory and then 4 Outstandings! (They don't use the letters until 3rd grade. ) His one weakness is language arts (which was the satisfactory) because the Asperger's makes it hard for him to write legibly. He does his best though, and Satisfactory is still great. He's got less than a month left before summer break begins.
So I'm pretty tranquil this morning, and I don't know what the day will hold, but I'm sure it should be nice. Aaron will be home very shortly and we may go do something together, or just go to bed for awhile.
Yesterday I went to the library and picked up more books on Asperger's and checked out "Frankenweenie" which we all watched together before I went to work. It was really cute even though it made me cry twice. But I'm a sap for movies anyway.
Speaking of crying, I'm a little concerned about how much of it I'm doing this week. I don't normally cry,but this week I've cried numerous times. I'm going to talk to my doctor next week when I see him about upping the dosage of the Ritalin, which he had said we might do anyhow. Right now we're tweaking the dosage to find out what works best for me. The good thing about it is if I can't handle the 10 mg dose then I have permission to break them in half to go back to 5 mg twice per day. So I don't have topay for a new prescription if it doesn't work out.
Well, I think that's it for now. Thank you all for being so supportive about going back to work, I truly appreciate it! (((HUGS)))
