Back to work

I think my skull was getting soft from laying on my back for 6 straight days. Is this possible? (FYI - never ask funeral directors questions like this as they will undoubtedly have a story to prove that yes, in fact that horrid thing you just asked about is completely possible.)

The owners wife was elated to see me as I walked in the door this morning, Mic pointed this out to me tonight when she picked me up. I was greeted with "eeeeps" in a southern drawl, and she took my coat, put my lunch in the fridge and ice pack in the freezer. I really enjoy my job-- even when I get cranky and tell the directors to shove it. They think I am playing... and laugh. I hide the truth behind my sarcasm pretty well. I had no intention of staying all day.. I was told that someone could take me home when I had enough (I couldn't drive myself this morning). I took one for the team.. and stayed. There is a lot to be done, and I couldn't let my co-workers hang.

I have actually started my holiday shopping! I have never been so on the ball with this-- EVER. We are doing pretty simple stuff this year. We get the nieces and nephews some fun small stuff (this year it all came from Little MissMatched) and we do a homemade gift. Last year I did this really great (if I say so myself)calendar that was themed month's with photos that I swiped from my siblings and my parents homes. All of July's photos had to do with 4th of July stuff, November was all Thanksgiving/Fall photos.. etc. We also took family photos and made personalized recipe cards (everyone in my family likes to cook) This year I have asked people to send me pics and I will make the calendar again (we filled in everyones birthdays/anniversaries/holidays). This year we are also doing family name plaques done with natures alphabet photos from i-stock, and adding some fancy dancy touches. Its nice to have a girlfriend who runs a printing company. Comes in handy!

I am starting to feel myself again. This makes me (and those around me) happy. Apparently I have been a bit on the bitchy side as of late. Sorrybout'that.

i got a very gross visual of a soft skull...then i giggled out loud. does that make me demented? :)

Glad you are back to business, but sorry you're still hurting. Also happy to hear from your previous blog that you are making some realistic health decisions in regards to mommydom. Smarty pants. Good decision. I'm proud of you.

I haven't noticed that you were bitchy. Oh wait, I don't live with you! :) <3

I'm trying to make a calendar for my family this year, but running into some roadblocks. They may not get it until the new year! I have 10 brothers and sisters, 4 nieces, and 3 nephews so keeping track of anniversaries, and birthdays is hard to do! I'm happy to hear that you are doing better. Hopefully your skull will harden after a while! :)
