    Good to "see" you again!
    Sounds like your enjoying school!
    What's your field(s) of study?
    I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.

    Thanks, Gabe!
    Yea, it was beyond cool! Mainly, 'cause someone else was already in that office. I knew that from visiting for meetings while doing the contract work. They moved my coworker (one of the few that survived the layoffs - our Marketing Coordinator, and a real nice person) to another office. I would have been just fine in the space they moved the coworker to, but they just felt I needed to feel like I was really "home".

    I will NEVER forget "this" day, for sure!

    And yes, Carolyn is still pretty over the moon...!

    Even though I'm as happy as a fly on a rib roast 'cause I'm back in my element doing what I was meant to do, this is more about my family than anything else.
    4 VERY LONG years...I had to get back...!

    Funny thing about watches, from my POV, anyway...
    My phone has a clock, my computer has a clock, my car has a clock, I drive by bank clocks, etc.
    Seems like, to me anyway, the only reason to wear a watch these days is for fashion.
    Plus, I don't like leather or plastic bands, and the really cool lookin' metal ones always tear the hairs outta' my arm...!

    They even surprised me with making sure I was back in my same old office!
    Beyond that, I can't even put into words how happy, blessed and grateful I am right now...!
    Wow- four years! Really- time goes by so fast (sort of)

    Ouch! I hope it feels better soon!

    Yes, it does. So crazy...after the second awesome day back today, it REALLY feels like I was never even gone...!
    The older I get the more exponentially time seems to pass. When I was a kiddo summer seemed like it lasted a year, nowadays it seems more like a week and a half...

    I had someone explain it like this. When you are a child- say age 5- then a year is a very long time, percentage wise, to you. But the more years you have then a year becomes a much smaller percentage of your memories so it feels like it goes faster.

    I like that too.
    But, to me anyway, it's always seems like an innate thing that just happens as you age. So many things to do, so little time, and as you age you just seem to keep getting further and further behind - in your own mind, anyway.
    There is always the need to do more, 'cause you feel like you haven't done enough. And, you don't know how much time you have left ('cause, at a certain age, we ALL start thinkin' about the odds we've beat ), and it just keeps going, making you even more aware of the passage of time.
