Getting back to work was easier than I was on myself. I wound up weeding almost the entire front area of my octagons. I paid the price the following morning when I encountered some minor difficulties getting out of bed. Luckily that was the worst of it and there were no further issues.
I also celebrated my birthday this month. I wasn't able to get that day off due to it being all staff week at work, but am taking a day off tomorrow to make up for that. My sister surprised me by contacting my team lead and having her pickup a cake for me at work. Grace wasn't about to let me quietly turn 50 without it being celebrated. Even though I've made it to the half century mark, I certainly don't feel, look, and often times act it. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to act at this age having lost the manual. I'm having fun and loving my life as it is now and hope it only continues to get better.
