Back to work

Quick post since I didn't write how yesterday went.

Work was very busy but it was good to be back. I need to fill the hours of the day and being back to work takes care of a lot of that. It was great to see everyone.

A few things:

  • Fuck this weather.
  • Fuck I-55 in the mornings. Today reminded me how much I hate it.
  • I used to FaceTime Billy Jo every morning from work at 7:00am to make sure she was up for work. For some reason I specifically thought of this today as I was working, and I miss doing this. It was routine for years, and now it is just another thing that won't happen again. I'm ok though - just one of those "things".
  • I may never use my dishwasher again. Such a weird and unexpected thing to think of as a result of now being alone. I won't use enough dishes to run it without it smelling like a restaurant dumpster in the August sun, so I just wash dishes as I use them.

A week home and I would rate myself as 95% ok/good, 4% meh, and <1% meltdown mode. I can live with this.

Looking forward to getting my car today (they had to push it back a day) and looking forward to the young survivors group Thursday night.

That's it for now... I have tons of shit to do (but didn't want to forget to write this stuff down :) )
