In Which I Go Slightly Crazy

Back in August of last year, I was given the option to work from home by my employer. At the time there was a lot of inter-cubicle drama going on, so I jumped at the chance. They gave me the equipment I needed and sent me home, and I've worked my forty-hour work weeks from home ever since.

I enjoy working from home. It gives me a quiet, comfortable environment to be more productive in, and I don't have to deal with the high-power executives that refuse to learn the names of the cubicle monkeys who work their asses off to pay their salary. There are more distractions that I have to deal with, but being able to fart or belch at any given moment makes it seem worth it. The only downside that I've come across with working from home is that I tend to go slightly stir-crazy after not leaving the house at all during my work week.

Today being the second to last day of my work week, I'm getting a quite restless. To avoid reaching the state of needing a padded room, I try to do things to focus my mind off of the fact that I haven't had truly fresh air in 72 hours. Alas, there is only so much Sudoku one person can do in a day (and you all know that Sudoku makes me a little crazy to begin with).

This is the most I think I have the attention span to write today. I will write more later, if I can sit in my chair long enough to do so.

Too bad you live in Maine and I live in Ohio or we could go stir crazy together. =P

people think working at home would be the dream job.. that it would be fantastic to sit in your jammies all day and work at your very own desk in your very own house. Well.. my experiences in doing this, resulted in too many fritos and screwing off too much.. then sitting up half the night doing my 'real' work when there was no one on line to bother HAHA!

Heather: A stir-crazy "partner in crime" would be nice... I should get outside and get some sun. I'm so white and pale, I glow in the dark.

Debbie: It is nice to be more comfortable and work from home, but luckily for me, my job keeps me busy for most of the time that I'm working so there are only a few times I'm struggling not to be bored.

Ha, you haven't seen my pasty white complexion. =P I don't tan anyway, I freckle. Ugh.
