Ready to Re-Join the World


Well, I finally feel more like myself. I'm only taking pain meds at night to help me sleep. I'm ready to re-join the world! My only recommendation is if you know someone recuperating, forget sending flowers - send a maid service! It's hard to clean and do laundry when you feel like crap.

I go back to work on Monday. I was scheduled to return on Friday, but my boss thinks it's silly to come back on a Friday, so I'm off an extra day. I'm looking forward to going back - get a little more structure in my life. I can now recite the entire line-up of daytime TV by heart. I think I would make a lousy stay at home wife.

I do have some good book recommendations though. I read three great books while I was down. Size 12 Is Not Fat and Size 14 Is Not Fat Either by Meg Cabot. They were both lighthearted murder mysteries. Very good for mindless entertainment. The third book was Secret Confessions of the Applewood PTA by Ellen Meister. A little less mindless, but not much. Kind of Desperate Housewives goes PTA. It does get into their problems and how they deal with them a little, but overall a good read.

For those of you keeping score, Michael and I have again parted ways. Same problem as always. I thought since he came to me this time, maybe things would be different. Ultimately we ended up at the same place - an impasse. He's fine with dating me for the rest of his life - I'm not.
