First day back at work...
took some adjusting!
I could not quite put my finger on it,
then right before I went to bed
I realized what it was!
I was lonely!!!
I came from a work situation
where I knew everyone well!
worked with one of my best friends!
Hugged people in greeting,
knew the kids,
knew the parents..
I had forgotten what 'starting over' feels like!
I then came home to a plumbing emergency...
only toilet we have,
I rushed out the door
to take my youngest to voice lessons!
Rushed home to a still broken toilet,
to just rush out again
to teach evening swim lessons!!
By the time I got home-
I was tired and cranky!
The landlord had fixed the toilet,
but I felt done!!
And yet- I survived it all!
The kids were great!
We all went for a walk last night,
and the one thing I did enjoy
was the simple routines
that tend to happen..
when you are stretched for time!
the non-summer routine!
So today is another day!
I have no doubt I will adjust-
swim lessons end within 2 weeks,
voice lessons only happen once a week-
yesterday was just a day!
Not a reflection of what every day will be!
Sort of like our life,
the bad moments are just that..a moment!
and they only define us,
if we let them!
