It’s Sunday night at 8:15 PM and my feet are kicked up on the coffee table and I’m watching the Grammy Awards. I sort of feel like it’s the first opportunity I’ve had all week to really kick back. Actually, it is.
Now that I’m back to work after my thyroid surgery, I’m back to work. And then some. I put in 10 hour days last week and a 3 hour day on Saturday. And about two hours today between computer work and phone calls. This week calls for more of the same, but my hope is I can limit my weekend to paperwork and no actual patient care. We’ll see. I won’t hold my breath. I’m looking forward to Wednesday night as it will be the only night I’ll have the whole night home with my family.
But, enough complaining. I have a job. I have a lot of medical bills. I have a lot of other bills. I have a responsibility to them. So, work it is.
I’m tired, though. My thyroid medications are still being regulated, plus working a lot, plus still in the latter stages of recovering from surgery are taking a toll. We went out for a friend’s birthday party last night and I lasted until 11:15. Long gone are the days that I could help close down a bar! We still had a blast and from the pictures I saw of later in the night, we missed a lot more fun!
Did I mention I’m training for a half marathon? I know, right? Me. For real. It’s 11 months away. It’s the Tinkerbell Half at Disneyland. I’m really excited to do this with a group of friends. My biggest issue at the moment is finding time to train. I know I won’t always be THIS busy at work, but I’m afraid I may have to *gasp* get up extra early to start my training. Whatever it takes, I guess! I have no aspirations of RUNNING 13.1, but I hope to run at least half of it! This will be a huge bucket list check off!
Now I need to work on some other stuff around the house (yeah, that part gets neglected when you come home from work at 7 or 8 PM and just want to go to bed) so I’ll leave you with the best part of the weekend – pitchers and catchers have reported to spring training!!
