Back to work

I've taken four weeks off my job, and now that I'm feeling better, I decided it was time to get back to it.

I work as a web content editor for a college's public relations department, which means I'm able to do a lot of work from home. My boss and the college have been extremely supportive of the time I have needed to take off. I'm very lucky for that.

Before my surgery, I filed for the Family and Medical Leave Act, which secures my job for 12 weeks. I didn't really need to worry about losing my job, but our human resources department recommended filing.

Because I have to commute for an hour each way to work, I plan to do as much work as I can from here and from my place in Colorado before committing to the office. While it will be nice to see my co-workers again (hi, Josh!), I'm not sure I can handle a very full eight-hour day, a two-hour drive, and 26 stairs.

For now, I'm happy putting in half days from my recliner for another few weeks.

When are you returning to Colorado?? Sounds like you are doing great!!
Maybe I have asked before - where in CO do you live?? My brother lives in Denver.
