Two Posts in One Day?

I know! It's like a bonus post! Well, I'll let you read it before deciding if it's any kind of bonus at all.

I am lonely, y'all. I am not sure if this working at home thing is for me. No, I cannot believe those words are even coming out of my mouth. This was a dream of mine. Flexibility. Freedom. Well, those I do have but I am also a people person. And working all day with no interaction besides the occassional phone call is next to maddening. I haven't gotten to the point of talking to telemarketers but folks I've come close!

My dream was simple. Manage my day to where I throw in a load of laundry, clean something, check my email, work on important projects and then have a scrumptious meal awaiting my more-than-deserving hubby when he gets home. I'm having a hard time not chuckling as I type that.

It's not that I don't have enough work to keep me busy. That couldn't be further from the truth. It's just that I stare at a computer all day. That is the extent of my interaction. I have been picking about my addiction to Facebook but, y'all, I'm really not kidding. Some days, that is the extent of my contact with the outside world. Just being to say "hi" to someone...even on the web is better than the silence or the iTunes songs I have played over and over for background noise.

OK. Enough pity party. There are plenty people who would kill to work steps from their bedroom. I shall put on my big girl panties and come up with a schedule or something to make it feel more like an office rather than a computer I never get away from...day or night. I will embrace the freedom that I have and make the most of being blessed with employment period.

Right? Right. Now....anyone wanna do lunch? LOL

I do want to do lunch!! Let me get the kids in school and we will set something up. One at lunch I can manage, but not three. Then I can tell you all about my leaving the addictive world of Facebook ;)
