so far so good... and a little clarity

First things first. No, I will not be going back to my old job assignment but I am still employed. This may be a strange thing for the non-contractors out there to grasp. Essentially, I am a hired gun who gets sent to work a specific job for a while. Though I may work in someone's building, my paycheck comes from my company whom was contracted to put workers on a specific task. My specific task, the one I was really hoping to get back to soon, has been contracted to another company... so that means I have to stop and let someone from that company take over. I really really really liked that job, but I'm not being hung out to dry. I'll get to work something else now.

It's been a bit more than a week home now and, knock on wood, it's going okay. I'm eating pretty much anything I want now still saving uncooked fruits and vegetables. The liquid diet quickly changed to toast and some fiber much to my better comfort. I'm debating dinner out tonight with some friends, but I think I'll be okay. I've got to try it sometime!
