Last week a very nice lady from the school board called to check on my return to work. I wanted to badly to say that I wouldn't be able to return to my regular duties, but I can't.
Physically, I am feeling so much better. My energy level is so much higher and I was even able to take down the Christmas decorations with little help. I even organized the boxes underneath the basement steps, something that Mr. JB has a very hard time doing (he didn't enjoy playing Te.tris as much as I did, I guess!).
I know that teaching my class is going to take a lot of energy and I can't compare going to the mall or having visitors over to working a full day, but I am going to explain to the kids that I have to take it easy. It's going to be hard on my pride to slow down since I'm used to moving at lightning speed when I'm at school. There will be a lot of sitting going on in my classroom!
So if you have some prayers to spare, I'd appreciate it. I don't usually feel anxious about work, but I do. I hope that my body can handle being a grown up again!
