On Tuesday, I was back at work. Back to life. I am not sure if I told you guys, but I have actually been on medical leave from work since my surgery. So this was my first time back to work in 6 weeks. I have to say, it was a little hard to go back. I know this sounds silly, but I think your body builds up an endurance to sitting behind a computer for 8 hours. So when you have been off doing your own thing for so long, going back to cubicle life is tough. I almost felt more claustrophobic back at my desk at work than I did during the five days of isolation. But it does feel right to start to get back to my real-world routine.
On the craft front, I worked on my cape a bit. However, I got a little frustrated working on the collar so I put it aside for now. It's now waiting for my mommy to help me. I love having my mom live close by. Now I can just throw up my hands and call, "Moooooooom!" And she'll come over, bringing her vast sewing knowledge, and help me work it out. Aren't moms the best?
After the cape frustration, I decided to pick up Little Birds once again. It is time, people. I have all the yarn for it. I have the skills to do it. I just need to get it done. Right now I am stuck in the very non-interesting, non-photogenic stage of ribbing.
On the hair front, I figured out how to do curly hair without applying any heat. Essentially, turning this into this...
For a girl with straight hair, curls are no small feat. But this process was actually very simple. (This is the YouTube video tutorial I used, for all you curl lovers out there.)
And lastly, I finally got one of these...
Consider that bandwagon jumped.
So to sum up, life is going well. I feel great. And happy to be back having adventures in the real world.
