Working from home when nobody’s there
I know I am spoiled. Working from home is a luxury. One I am grateful for. Especially since we both get to work from home. Getting to share our morning coffee together, having lunch frequent lunch dates, or just someone in the other room you can vent to is wonderful. But you get spoiled.
This week my girl is off visiting her dad and my other LB is at a big work meeting. So I am working from home, alone both day and night. Day 1 was no problem. Day 2 got a little bit too quiet. Fortunately my lovely neighbor and son stopped by for a chat in the evening which closed out the day nicely. Day 3- I am miserable!
It is just too quiet. Too quiet. And no one needs me. No one is wondering what is for dinner. No one is looking for a playmate. No one needs to be driven to an activity. No one to hug and snuggle up with at night.
There are no sounds of laughter. No giggles. No one begging to go in the pool. No LBs doing cannonballs together. No helpers in the kitchen. I could go on and on…but basically there are no distractions to keep me from focusing on what is missing.
I only have one more day to go and then the chaos will begin to build up as my besties from KY come into town and then the Lovebugs follow. Then everything will be right again…and I will have my morning sunshine, my lunch date, and all the noises that I treasure.
Till then I will be happy that I have such wonderful lovebugs to miss. Hope they are both having fun with their adventures and get ready to welcome them home!
