I finally went back to work this week after 2 months off. It is odd to be excited about going back to work, but work is a step towards going back to normal life. I am easing my way back into it, working in the office 2 or 3 days a week and then form home the rest of the week. Initially it was weird to go back to work since there was so much I felt I had missed. However, I quickly learned that not much had really happened thanks to the slow economy. Catching up actually went really quickly and I was able to take back my old daily work. I ended up feeling really exhausted after 7 hours at work, but still pushed on for the 8th hour. Going back to work caused me to go to bed earlier, but I would wake up the next morning and have another full day at my apartment. Thus far I don't think work has wiped me out and am wondering what going into the office two days in a row would do to me.
Along with starting work this week I am continuing to organize and clean my apartment. Which is helping me to feel more settled and more like myself. I am starting to realize just how unsettled I was for the last year here.
Overall though I have had a good week and am ready for the next two and am counting down the days until Winter Carnival at MTU and seeing Rettke and Amoret.
