Working from home

I've had the pleasure of working from home a lot lately, which I looooove. Let me count the ways:
  • Snacking. A selection of almonds, sausage, and the stinkiest Cotswold cheese with chives I can find, at any time I want. (ps regarding the photo... Oh, you think we need new knives? So do we! Registry Hint #24858684)

  • News. Constant NPR, impossible in my office because I get terrible radio reception and the corporate internet police block all streaming media.

  • Music. Have listened to the mix I just made the F-Word a few times today, plus approximately ten replays of Iron & Wine covering "Wild Horses," which is unbearably beautiful. Now blasting The National (only until it's time for "All Things Considered," of course).

  • Cat-watching. How can you not grin when just below your computer perch, one of the House Kittenz spends a solid hour rolling herself around on her back and doing ridiculously cute things? (Here's Fanny showing off her belly.)

  • Attire. I'm about to step it up from a nightgown to sweats and a tank in order to check the mail. Hotness!

  • Embarrassing Habits. So fine, I tried on the wedding dress again. HA! But I have to get it altered soon, so I don't think I'll have it much longer. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
Hypothetical Home Office Activities:
  • Cooking. Okay, full disclosure, I have not done any cooking today, but on other days when I work from home it's the perfect way to plan out a yummy meal without being rushed. I love working while something's slowly simmering away...

  • Working Out. I have not had any close, personal time with Jillian yet today, either, but our other cat Switters is giving me a look that says he has fully recovered from yesterday's accidental body kick and thinks it's time to get my ass in gear. Also, Jillian is glaring at me from the DVD sitting on the counter. Fine, Jillian, you win!

  • Cleaning Up. Last week when I worked from home I managed to get this whole place vacuumed and turned in a project pre-deadline. That's a little ambitious for my mood at the moment, but hey, anything's possible...

When I started doing Jillian's workouts I lost 6 lbs like, right away. She works your ass like no other!
