Head Spinning Monday

Today is my first day back at work in 3 weeks. Even though I was covered for the time I took off with FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) I was still nervous to come back to work. My nerves were shot this morning and I ended up throwing up from all the anxiety. I have been doing pretty well at not showing my emotions lately but I am taking it out on my body by not eating properly. I am up on the scale and I expected a little of it because I have not been able to be as active with a sprained shoulder, wrist and ankle. I also have had more junk food in the last few weeks then I have had in years and it made me feel horrible. I also messed up on my meds and did not take my water pill for almost a week so I am retaining and now flushing out lots of fluids. I am going to give myself a reprieve on weighing in until next week.

I wanted to share some pictures of the finished ceramic pieces I painted.

I ended up giving the bowl to Pat who was the Superintendent for the construction of our building. He was such a nice guy that I wanted him to have a memento of being here. He was really touched that I gave it to him so that made me even happier to give it to him. Until next time...


  1. What a cute bowl!

    I hope your day at work went well :)

  2. That bowl came out so nice, and how sweet of you to give it to the superintendent! :)

    You'll feel better once you get back into the swing of everything - it's been a rough time, that's for sure.

  3. Hi Katie, that bowl is so cute! I'm just catching up on your last posts...wishing you and your mom both quick recoveries!!!

  4. The bowl is awesome!

    Dont be too hard on yourself with eating and such. You've really had a lot on your plate. Hopefully getting back into a regular routine will help.

    Hoping you're both feeling better soon!

  5. Cute bowl. You're so sweet to give it away. I'm with Shelly, you'll get back in the swing of things. Things have been so crazy for you! Some routine should be welcomed.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
