Today I'm back at work. I can't say that I'm happy to be here, but I AM happy to not be sitting around at home, bored and lonely. I do miss my puppies though, they were excellent company. The girls in my department got me a card and some pretty flowers. It's nice to know I was missed.
Things are going pretty well overall. I've lost a total of 92 lbs. I've been biking almost every day. Other aspects of life are pretty quiet, so there's nothing really to complain about. Last night I went to an orientation for a phlebotomy course. It's 15 weeks, 2 nights a week, an hour away from both work and home. I'm seriously considering it. While I don't at all dislike my job, in fact, I rather enjoy it, I can't handle the hour drive anymore, especially not on my small wages. A phlebotomy certificate would open up opportunities for me much closer to home. Not to mention that average starting wages are higher than what I currently make. I've got about a week to decide before I need to gather and submit the paperwork and tuition.
I hope you're all doing well. I'm going to start being better about reading and commenting.
