Next week will be the 4 months since we welcomed the bionic knee into our lives. The great news is that the Bionic Man is now back to work three days a week. It's pretty amazing! He is still getting stronger and more used to how his new parts work and I am sure with his determination he will be back to working full time in no time. Or sometime. I am thrilled he is alive and walking and we will deal with whatever happens next when it happens.
After 8 months of having to be alert, aware, and actively being there, it seems weird to now have a few days a week to do my own thing. I keep feeling like I am forgetting something or something is missing but really it is just the absense of having to keep eyes and ears open. It's the absense of needing to be ready in the most urgent way. Now I can be a normal amount of ready most of the time. Of course there are still things to deal with as far as medical, disability, insurance, and budgeting for a change in our circumstances. It's just easier to deal with those things when nobody is in pain.
I'm looking forward to having more time to focus on my projects, clients, my own health, and a fair amount of day dreaming. I am going to chose day dreaming over worrying. I will not say that out loud, though. Let's keep the plan wrecking fairy away a bit longer.
