Workin' From Home

When Mommy #2 works from home, like today, she seldom has time for anything. I get all excited when she doesn't get up at the crack of dawn and gets ready for work BECAUSE I am thinking of all the snuggles I'm gonna get! But I am usually wrong - when Mommy works from home, she still gets up and dressed as if she is going to work (albeit later than usual). She sits at the computer scratching her head and flipping papers ALL DAY. The closest thing to a snuggle I get is when I settle by her feet. . . no, ON her feet. Then at least I am warmed by her body heat and comforted by her smell.

Ahhhh! BUT then there is my blog. It seems Mommy has less time to work on it when she WORKS from home than when she is in her office far away!!! Whattha!!!!! She explained it to me quite simply: At work I get a break where I have no obligations to the office. That is the time I use to type your blog and edit your pictures. When I work from home there ARE NO breaks! Anytime, I am not working on WORK STUFF, I am performing chores around the house that need to get done. And if truth be told. . . the chores are usually the reason I worked from home to BEGIN with.

Poor Mommy. I guess I should be more understanding, huh? But then again. . . there is that issue of SNUGGLES. . .

I saw on TV that you folks in the MIDWEST and EAST . . .  well, basically EAST of the ROCKIES . . .are suffering through some pretty miserable weather. I watched the Niners vs Packers game AND the Winter Classic. I know what cold LOOKS LIKE. It is even cold here in CA but then we are talking 56 degrees as compared to -56 degrees.

Brrrrrrrrrrrr! Promise me you will be safe, stay warm and abide by all the directives to stay off the roads when you can. And PEOPLES. . . bring your pets inside!!! There is no need to make them suffer and freeze to death like that.

Lucy feels your pain. I do the same thing. I work from home on Fridays. I wake up the same time and start working earlier and work for just as long. I feel guilty to "goof off" although when I am my office I chat with others, etc. but never break when I am home

We are trying to stay warm here too, but it isn't easy.

Hi Noodles! My dad's the same way as your mom. He works from home EVERY DAY, but he's usually pretty busy during the working hours. Although at midday we get to each lunch together and play some potato catch.

Could you please send some of that warm California air our way? It's MISERABLE here!
