My job

I work in an office 6-12 hours per week (one or two days.) I have been out of work 10 weeks as of tomorrow. I had told my boss before the surgery I would try to get back as soon as possible, perhaps even getting a ride to work before I was able to drive myself.

Today I called to let him know I was still unable to drive, and he told me if I can't come back by Fri. of next week, then he will have to hire someone else as my work is piling up. I understand he needs someone to do the Fri. work, but I had asked this other girl in my office to work Fri.'s while I was out. She said she could do every other. But apparently she has been using that time to catch up on her work, and my stuff is still not done.

I have one job that takes 2-3 hours a week, but apparently it has not been done in May or June at all, so it is 14-21 hours of work waiting for me. My boss needs it done because I input paid claims, so now he is unsure if we need to refile any claims that we have not been paid for. I asked my mom to take me to work the next two Fri.'s so I don't lose my job.

I guess it just got me a bit overwhelmed thinking of what I am going back to. Plus my ankle is not fully healed, so I am limited in what I can do. But my boss said I will only do phones and claims (that I can do sitting) for awhile.

For next two weeks I will be working Fri. 8:30am-3:30. In July and August I will be working Mon. 9:00-2:00 and Fri. 8:30-3:30. Except I am off the first week of August for our church Vacation Bible School.

My mom is going to watch the boys Fridays for me. I need to ask my friends to each take 1 of the 8 Mondays there are in the summer. I did this last year and it worked out ok.

I also will go back to work Sat. nights for July. My mom also watches the boys when I work Sat. nights as well.

I am so fortunate to have such a wonderful support group in my family (especially my mom), church family and friends.
