Back in the Saddle, Again

Today was my first day back with my kids following my surgery (and continuing recovery). It went well. They have really worked hard during my absence and I am very proud of their ability to make the most of a difficult situation.

I am absolutely exhausted. My physical energy is still rebuilding and I was only able to make it through my classes and then crawl home. But it did feel good to be with the students. I didn't realize how much their enthusiasm would spur me on to do more with them today than I thought possible. And as much as I needed last week to just try and heal, I really missed my kids. It makes me anxious to return to work tomorrow.

Other things do not---like all the work I have staring me in the face. My "to do" list is a little scary at the time being, considering how little energy I have at the moment. I will just have to do what I can and hope that others will be patient with me for another week or so.
