My first day back at work went pretty good. My pants still sorta fit me. Hallelujah for work slacks…they stretch easier.
The thing about working at a bank is that there is a lot of different usernames and passwords involved….sometimes more than 1 in a single task. I can’t write them down. So I write down notes to where only I could know what they mean. I couldn’t remember what my notes meant. Seriously the hysterectomy made me stupid. I forget some of the craziest stuff! I spent a lot of my morning, on the phone, getting myself into my log-ins. I had one woman laughing so hard at me on the phone because of how bad I locked myself out!! I could hear the tears streaming down her face as she laughed at me. It was too funny. Once I got to my actual job I did really well. I missed it.
I was able to get up and walk around as needed. Though I did push myself a little too much at first. I always work on deadlines. I needed to beat an 11:00 deadline so I sat too long trying to reach it. I finally had to give in and go for a long stroll around the bank. I am up on the third floor so I have plenty of room to roam. I also decided to start an at work exercise regimen. I use the stairs in the morning to get to my office. I climb down to the basement to get the mail. Then there are some long halls that I have to walk to get to the elevator and to my office. So I use that route to get back to my office. Then at the end of the day, since I’m wore out, I just use the elevator. I hope to work up to not using the elevator at all, like I used to, but I know I’m not anywhere near that yet.
Once it was time to go I was definitely ready to go. Four hours was plenty. I came straight home, set my alarm clock, and crashed out. I got a good 1 1/2 hour nap in before I had to get Lauren and Austin from school. The rest of the afternoon I did really well. Lauren had a choir concert this evening and the chairs kicked my butt. So I did have to take a pain pill once I got home from that. Maybe tomorrow I can have a pain pill free day. Just taking it one day at a time .
