Today I worked from home. I don’t do this very often (once every 3-4 months or so), but occasionally spending a day in my home office instead of my city office is a nice way to shake up routines, give myself a break from monotony, and feel ‘indulgent’ in not having to bother with a downtown commute. That, and I get an extra half hour of sleep. 😉
I was active on the computer for literally eight hours today, completely uninterrupted. The experience was simultaneously joyfully productive yet also slightly unpleasant. I ended the day with a flat rear end (from sitting all day) and dry red eyes (from staring all day); but I also felt accomplished and tranquil – and I got to spend the day in a t-shirt and polka dot socks, enjoying a fresh breeze tickling my nose through the open windows of the house. Aaahhhh…
Not a bad deal. For all the jobs I could occupy, I’m damn lucky to have the one that I do.
