Gone Fishing. Or whatever you want to believe

Oct 15 2009 Published by under Uncategorized

Like a few other young'uns out there, my To Do list is growing faster than I can actually DO anything. Recently, just being in my office is good for about 2 hours worth of random shit I don't want to do each day so I'm trying the hide out approach. Our new house has an actual office space nestled away in the finished basement. It's got everything I need, and importantly, one thing I don't - a phone. My cell phone doesn't even get reception down here and few people even have my home phone, mostly because I can't even remember the damn number. So today is for sitting with my laptop, unshowered with a pot of coffee brewing and just writing. Not emails, not evaluations or reports, not minutes of some meeting I was barely paying attention at, not a section of a grant that I won't even get money from. No. I'm writing stuff for me today. Come back tomorrow with your crap that you couldn't find someone else to do.

    Unfortunately I have to go into the office today as I have some stuff that I need to attend to in person. Might have to go in tomorrow too. Bugger. The problem with me working from home is that I only have one table and it's a short distance away from the couch.

    Yesss, I love that feeling. As soon as this semester is over and I don't have office hours 3 times a week to worry about, that will be me writing my R01, sitting on a yoga ball in my pajamas because I will be too pregnant for regular clothes and a chair.
