I just wanted to say a quick hi and update since I've been absent all summer. I don't have a working computer at home and it's difficult coming here from my cell phone. Normally I get on here from my work computer but since I've been on summer vacation I haven't had a chance to stop by. Today is our first day back to school/work. Summer was mostly good. We did quite a few activities with my mom. We went to the zoo, the aquarium, our favorite water park, the beach, and the movies. I slept in every single day till 10:00 and it felt great! I also did a lot of summer reading which I loved and I am really going to miss. I can still read, of course, but now that I'm back to work full time I won't have nearly as much of an opportunity. I just started a brand new book by one of my favorite authors and I'm sure it will take me several months to finish it. Anyway, like always at the end of summer, I'm completely broke so going back to work is a good thing. I am happy to report that both kids got to school on time this morning, even difficult child who has been sleeping in till noon all summer and is terrible to try and wake up. She got up early and took a shower and made it to the bus on time. Woohoo! My boyfriend thought for sure she would be missing the first day of school. I'm glad she proved him wrong. I won't find out how the kids first day went till I leave work here. I hope they both had a good day. As for work, it's busy as ever having to make a TON of phone calls trying to track down the kids who never showed up. I dread this every single year. I had quite a bit of anxiety the last few weeks of summer just thinking about coming back. As you all know, I get terrible anxiety being on the phone. I am still going through medication changes and trying to find the magic pill that will help me. The latest is Paxil. I have only been taking it for about a week so I need to give it time. We shall see. Anyway, I'm about to wrap up my first day back to work and I'm happy to say I made it in one piece. I have missed you all and it's good to be back!
