Back to Life

Sometimes it is so relieving to be back at work, and doing the daily "thing". I'm one that doesn't always enjoy time off. I do, but I don't. I get very lazy... stay up too late, sleep in too long. And I eat... it's what we "do" for fun. That hasn't changed much, for better or for worse. Today, I was fully back in the swing of things, and it felt really good.

And good news... I think the weight gain alert may have been a false alarm. My non-negotiating scale read my normal high this morning, and if it reads similarly tomorrow, I'm calling it a "no gain". It's funny, I'll take a low weight and own it forever, but not a high weight! No way, no how!

My husband, and daughter, and you guys (gals) have been so supportive about this family situation. I guess my sons fiance posted on her Facebook status that she was "glad to be home and away from psychos". My daughter (who amazes me with her ability to find the good in everyone)- called to let me know that she refrained from responding. If I had responded (which I also would not do)- I would have said, "I know you feel!!!". Sigh.

I'm relieved to have my life back. My schedule is normal, my diet is back to normal, and my home is once again my own.


  1. Too bad we can't pick our kids significant others. I have a couple of psycho people to deal with too. It sucks!

  2. Structure is always nice to have! Glad life is getting back to normal for you.

  3. Holy cow...she sounds like a piece of work, but good for you for not responding. I don't know if I would have had that restraint! :)

  4. Are you serious? I mean really? That's one thing if NO ONE in your family will ever see but knowing you will - that's hurting someone's feelings on purpose. Ugh. I'm sorry.

  5. Looks like I missed something while I was cruising. It constantly amazes me the shit people put on facebook.
