Last night was my first night back to work. Everyone was so happy to see me & I can't tell you how warm that made me feel. It did feel great to be back, but after about an hour I got a bad headache. My boss said it was probably due to the negative pressure our room has. So I went out for about 10 minutes to get a Diet Coke, came back, and felt better. Also saw the Doctor today for my 2nd PostOp. You don't want to know about that....needless to say, it hurt & it hurt, and it hurt, but it is OVER!
So I didn't get home until later this morning. Fiona was sitting there waiting for me looking at her "watch" as I wasn't there at 6:45am for her morning walk. I talked to Chris for a few minutes then off to bed tossing & turning as I'm trying to stop taking Tylenol PM to sleep. Finally did get to sleep. When I woke up this afternoon, first things first...coffee. I'm using a new French Roast that I got at CostCo. Yum. Then I came up here to do my e-mails. I saw one from the editor of Cloth Paper Scissors. I waited to open it as I knew it was a rejection, but surprise...it said I was one of the finalist of the reader's challenge of "Life's a Beach". Shocked me as I sent in the image on a whim. Cyn sent me the information, and I put it off at the last minute thinking..."yeah, right...what does CPS want to see that I have?". I sent Gideon Goldfish. Gideon is one my rescued beanie babies from the thrift store. Instead of being in the Columbus city dump, he now sits on my work table & will soon be heading out for the final cut. I did see that my e-mail was with others finalist such as Laura McCabe. Wow...I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he like Gideon. He's a pretty sweet looking "reject".
