So here's to holding me to it. I hope you all do. :)
Today I'm thankful for the gift of working from home. I am so lucky to be work so well with my husband. I never thought it would last (the working together part, not the marriage part - he's stuck with me for life!), but it has and it's wonderful to be able to work with him and from home. To be able to do laundry in between phone calls. To let the dog hang out in the sunshine on the deck for a little longer in the morning than she would be able to had I needed to leave for work - she's kenneled throughout the day when we're gone. She's also kenneled while I'm working in the morning and afternoon for the most part...not because I want her to be away from me, but because she really likes it. She chooses to go into her kennel basically from 9am - 3:30 pm. While I'm doing phone calls, I actually appreciate that she wants to be in her kennel because every so often there's a strange noise and if she's not in her kennel, she will defend this house with some big dog barks. Big dog barks tend to not look professional when talking to professionals, so it's good that she likes her kennel so much.
I'm also so very thankful today of all days that I work from home because just when I was about to start working this morning, I squatted down to pick up a leaf on the rug and RIP! My pants became crotchless...totally not a good thing if I were in a public space like an office. But in the comfort of my own home...pants were tossed in the trash and new jeans were put on. I was just thinking the other day that it seems like I've been living in 2 pairs of corduroy pants this winter, and sure enough, that's definitely the case. Bummer. I did love those pants, clearly. I fear the other pair of cords isn't far behind, so I'll have to make those my "apartment pants" from now on, for fear that I might actually have a wardrobe malfunction while at the grocery store or something. Yikes!
Vitamin D time!
This dog loves warm laundry. She refuses to let me fold any of it until it has fully cooled down.
