Am I better yet? June 25, 2012Posted by mareserinitatis in research, work.

I had a minor surgery last Friday. The doctor said I should be well enough to go back to work in 4-5 days. I’m at three days now, and I’m getting a bit batty, even though I’m also sleeping a lot more than normal. When I’m awake, I feel like I need to be doing something.
I would be fine with this except that the university has a policy that I can only access the supercomputer cluster from on-campus. I was going so nuts yesterday that I made my husband drive me up there (I was on restricted driving, as well) so that I could do a couple things. I would like to get him to bring me back today, but he’s trying to get some work done, so I don’t know how likely that is.
It’s funny – at least when I’m sick, I don’t feel like doing work and so will take it easy. But here, I’m not sick, I don’t feel too bad, and I just keep thinking about all the stuff I want to get done. At least I have to be home to let the plumber in…I think it’s the only time I’ve been thankful for a plumbing emergency.
I can just imagine what I would be like if I were forced to sit at home for a really long time. I think I’d make everyone nuts.
What are you like when you’re under orders to ‘rest’?
