I had one more day of freedom than I expected. Seems they had to do another background check and it took a day longer than they originally expected. But . . . I started Tuesday instead of Monday, and I'm so happy to be back!!! Don't get me wrong. I loved being home for those four'ish months . . . but I think I'm a worker and just feel so much more focused when I'm working. Really glad TI called me back, too, because I like the work, I like the people, I just like it!!! It's close to home, little to no stress. It's just a good place for me.
So, thank you, thank you, thank you -- to whomever is listening -- thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
