My First Day Back to Work

I'm an elementary librarian.
The last time I was in my library it was October 30, 2012.
My plan was to return to work January 7, 2013.
Things went wrong with my c-section and I ended up having surgery January 11.
Today was my first day back.
I was not ready.
I have hated being in pain but I have loved being able to see Jack.
If it were financially possible I would be a stay at home mom. 
So back to today.
Everyone was so kind. 
They stopped by to check in on me and see pictures of my precious Jack. 
Before I left today my principals gave me a fat envelope full of money.
We needed this money so badly right now. 
Medical bills are eating us up and because I had to be out so long my check is being docked $600 each month until August.
It was the greatest gift.
Everyone has given me such love with their thoughts and prayers.
Although I wasn't thrilled about going back to work, it was a good day.
It felt good being back and doing what I am meant to do.

Jack is staying with his NaNa tonight.
I have wonderful parents. 
Here he is at my parents house.

I love technology.
Tomorrow I get to do it all over again and I know that each day will get easier. 

PS...2 years ago I met my husband. I never would have thought that I would be married to that man and have his baby. Oh Life how you trick me in the best way.


  1. That was so nice! I am sure that money will come in handy!

  2. Sounds like a good day back to work! People's generosity never ceases to amaze me. When all the news stories are about greed, laziness, anger, murder, and all things bad, it is great to hear about the good people have done! I hope each day gets easier, and I hope you are able to enjoy a nice night with your hubby on the anniversary of your meeting!
