In other news, I'm back at work (still on light duty) after 4.5 months out. Physical therapy is going really well and I'm able to do all sorts of stuff that I couldn't do before surgery, but I still can't do all the things that I need to do in order to fulfill my duties at work, so I'm sitting at a desk and doing busy work. But it's still nice to be back around familiar faces and to be getting paid a full paycheck again.
I also just finished all of my course work for my master's degree (as of yesterday), and I'm just waiting on a final grade. If all goes well, I'll have initials after my name, and a master's in applied behavior analysis. I never thought I'd ever achieve something like this, and it's amazing to know that I completed something this big. I could never have done it without the support of my family, and my faith to keep me going.
And as if that's not enough, Dante graduated from high school, turned 18, received his Patriarchal blessing, and was ordained to the Melchizedek priesthood! He starts college in the fall, and applied for his first job. Oh, and Alex turned 9, and is finally out of a car seat. Everyone is huge (except for me because I've lost 15lbs since starting the Fit Mormon group on Facebook). Speaking of Facebook, I had enough of dealing with the crazy and next year is an election year, so to save my sanity, I took a break from FB. I just don't have the mental energy to deal with everyone else's junk, and I'm pretty sure it's one of the reasons why my blogging became so sporadic (that and Grad school). So you'll see less of me on FB, and more of me on the blog, plus there are designs that have been on the back burner and I'm itching to get back to it.
