First day back to work

First day back to work went by in a blur...

I went to Marshalls before work and found the exact dress I was looking for. I ran into my boss/friend Pam there and she gave me the thumbs up on it. I found the proper undergarments. I went to DSW and didn't find the perfect shoes but brought two pairs home. I still need accessories. Why did I wait till almost the last minute for this? I'll shop again tomorrow after work and on Thursday if I have to.

I used to get really nervous about the first day back to work after vacation. Afraid I'd forget how to cut hair. Afraid I'd be nervous (self-fulfilling prophesy?). I stopped being nervous a few years ago. Today, my hands were shaking like crazy with my first client. It was like they didn't belong to me. I was with a regular client that I know well. I wasn't nervous. Well, I was once my hands started shaking. Fight or flight reaction. I went in the back room and ate a yogurt and used the bathroom and then I was fine. Thank goodness. I suffered for years with anxiety attacks and I knew I had to get through this, and I did. Whew. I was just fine for the rest of the day. I hope I don't start being nervous about the first day back again.

I was busy, busy, busy. It was great. I loved my vacations, but I also love my job.
