That might not sound like any big deal to you…..but since April 1st….I’ve not had a day home…ALONE!
The Hubster recently received a promotion to a new position. Where he was plant controller before, he’s moved a step above being responsible for one plant, and now works assisting many, and he is doing much of his work from his home office here at the house, with the thought that he would be traveling intermittently plant to plant to plant as needed.
My big worry when he took this position was that when I was gone, he would be home. When I was home, he would be gone…..but after a month of not having ANY time at home alone to do things for myself by myself ((and having to account for it)) an impromptu trip to the Wilmington, NC plant came up and I found myself home alone for all of today, all of tomorrow, and most of Wednesday!
I guess all this working from home is to get me accustomed to what it will be like when we retire.
It’s not that I don’t like it. It’s just that I don’t know what to do with myself! It’s just different!
Does that sound selfish?
I guess I feel like my time is not my own, and if he is working, I should be working – because it feels wrong to have “down time” relaxing for ME…when he is in the office working away. I feel like I can’t take “time out” in the middle of the day to put my feet up and take a few leisurely stitches when I too *SHOULD* be working at REAL WORK.
It’s an adjustment.
Life is about adjustments.
So if anyone has any advice for me on how to balance all this “under-the-same-roof-ness” when we aren’t accustomed to it…please let me know!
As for my home alone time? I made the best of it today!
The mail order is all caught up and out.
I had a massage!
I met with Karen and Lisa to discuss things regarding our Collaboration Celebration coming up in August! Click HERE for more info! ((You ARE coming, aren’t you?!? There are a few slots left! I’d love to have you come!))
I’ve been to Sam’s and bought more computer stuff – back up hard drive, a new version of Microsoft Office ((The old one had been installed and reinstalled too many times and the license was expired..I HATE that they do that!)) and a couple of blouses for my IRELAND trip coming up!
Bank deposit – DONE…..laundry….running!
I plan on spending the evening with my feet up, in charge of the remote and working on a binding ---because NO ONE is here working away in the home office making me feel guilty about doing it!
Enjoy your Monday evening, everyone…..tomorrow night…QUILT-CAM! 9 pm Eastern!
