I was fairly rested for my first day back to work despite our scramble to get child care in place. I was sad to leave my girls all day and I missed them terribly. I brought several framed pictures of them to put on my desk so I could stare at them all day.
In a way it was nice to be away and have a "break" from the girls. I have a different set of stresses at work but they can be more manageable. My day started with getting through my emails. When I opened outlook I had 1471 emails to get through. I guess when you are out of work for 6 months, your email really piles up. Luckily our phones had been reset several times at work so I only had 1 lonely voice mail to listen to. So after getting through the emails and showing off the pictures of the girls, I was able to get back to work. I quickly got back into the swing of things and got my first student registered for class. I felt like I hadn't missed a step.
Tonight may be rough as Linda will be tired from her night with the girls and her day at work herself. I hope we figure out a way for us both to get some sleep and we will have Sara back for tomorrow.
