Back in the saddle again....

I survived week one of back to work after all the time off with mono. I can tell you one thing though; it certainly was a L – O – N – G week!!!! It was quite the rude awakening when the alarm would buzz at 5:45a (pun intended). Thankfully I get off from work at 4:00 so I could get home at a decent hour and prepare for the next day. It also gave me some quality time with the oh, so neglected kitty. It was weird to be sitting at a desk and not have her curled up in a ball on my lap. I quickly got used to that constant companionship while I was home. She was a good nurse maid.

My biggest issue in my absence was with the temp who was at my desk. By all accounts she is a very nice person; however, she did a little rearranging of my desk that disturbed me. She did wash my water glass and coffee cup which was kind; however, I am still looking for my German dictionary.... Gives me something to do I guess....

I miss being home in some ways though I am grateful to be back in the saddle and interacting with other human beings. One of the things I miss the most is sitting at the lap top playing Bejeweled 2. It got to be such a bad addiction that I would even hear the music in my head when not playing... Very sad indeed...

One week down, many more to follow.... The mortgage ain't gonna pay itself!

Big congrats on your big return.

In addiction news, I've never been able to get into Bejeweled, but I really, really love Text Twist.
