I'm Going Back To Work!

I can't believe it's all happening so soon, but I'm scheduled to go back to work next Monday, November 5th... crazy, huh!? I called Karen (HR) at work today, and put on my best professional Kelly voice, and when she answered I said,

"Hi Karen, this is Kelly Kane and I'm calling to apply for a job" she was totally confused for 20 seconds, it was priceless!

So starting Monday I'm going to work 10-4pm Monday-Friday... if anything crazy comes up, I can always cut my hours or something. It'll be a work in progress. They're still figuring where they're going to use me, but they said there is tons of work for me to do, so that's good! Most likely, I'm going to start off with 1 client, and then help out other accounts and projects. So soon I'm going to need fun things to decorate my empty cubicle with... any ideas are welcome!

I'm trying to do errand-ish stuff before I get back to the grind, so I'm getting some work done on my car this week and catching up on sleep -- I'm not sure why, but I've been SOOOOO tired lately - you would think with me officially being in remission I would feel fabulous, but not the case! I'm super sleepydoodles and my lower back is KILLING me! It's where I hold all my stress typically, but I'm not really stressed... so it's kinda weird. I did also get a flu shot the same day I went to see the lymphoma dude, so I wonder if that has had some sort of effect on me as well... oh well, I'm trying my hardest to catch up!

I'm heading to bed now, hopefully soon I'll shake this whole nocturnal habit I've formed...

Back to work Horay! I hope you take it easy, though, you've been through a lot.

I still owe you that long email... it's coming. It just takes me days or weeks to do anything.

Congrats on returning to work - good for you, Kelly! Hope you slot straight back in, wow, they're not going to know what's hit them!!! :o)

As for your empty cubicle - a collage of all your fav Hodge buddies would be a start....... :-p

Also - 3 year old modern art is highly underrated!!

Book your time off for next June as soon as you return to make sure that's a goer!!!

Wow - enjoy your last week off!!! Proud of you Kel...........xx

Believe it or not, I was up in Boston for less then 24 hours to cart my wife's ass to the Red Sox Parade. I SHOULD HAVE told you and I totally forgot. Next time.

Hey Kelly, Sorry I haven't been keeping up to date as much. Jane has been keeping posted on you all. I am sooo happy for you. That R word is awesome, and you get to go back to work, too. You have done a fantastic job keeping everyone else posted, and up to date, and I for one truly appreciate it. Reading your blog always gave me an idea of what was and is going to be next in line for Jane. If you ever get to Idaho, (North), please give us a call, I truly would love to meet you up close and personnel! Best of luck to you going back to work, and everything for your future! Love Jane's Mom Cindy

Happy Lymphoma and Leukemia month! (I hope that's what it's called) Crack out the purple and green martinis! It's time to party!

I'm celebrating the first day by visiting my oncologist. Good times!

Talk to you later.

Ha! Ha! I get to stay at home and still be sick and you have to go earn money...oh, wait, that sounded like a lot better idea in my head!!!

That's great you're going back to work. I bet you can't wait to see everyone. Enjoy yourself!!

(Two words which together seem like an oxymoron, but whatever)

It'll certainly be good to get back to normal, huh?
