I'm fortunate enough to get to work from home a couple of days a week. Sometimes, the pure solitude of it is bliss to me. But sometimes, the quiet can be almost oppressive.
Having a split schedule like this is good in a lot of ways. It's easier to get people to do work at the house, I am often here for package deliveries, that sort of thing. Plus, where I live and work is one of the most congested parts of the country, traffic-wise, and it's really nice to get a break from it.
Something really, really cool happened today though, that's never happened before. Our girl Valentalae is visiting, and Missy's got the day off, and they, and one of my cats, Yang decided to keep me company as I work in my home office.
