Today was my first day back to work after almost a month away. I am going back part-time for a bit. It was almost surreal to go back after that long away. The weather was completely different when I was last there--it was still hot. Today I had to wear a coat and it was cold, so it felt like I had been away even longer. When I got to my office, it was just as I had left it, and there were some tough memories of what I was doing and what was going on when I was there last.
It was just a tough day. I don't even feel like a part of things there now. I know it is only the first day back, but things were definitely off.
Oh, and I turn 39 tomorrow. Believe me, I am NOT excited about this birthday. This is not where I thought I would be for this birthday, literally or figuratively.
