I had worked myself into a tizzy. Sitting across the sticky table from my husband, I clenched my hands tightly in my lap and turned to focus my watery eyes on the empty table beside us. We had walked together to the diner for a fun breakfast, but my husband had already offered to take a separate route home. That’s how… Read More
A Fun Day at Work
I love working from home, but it definitely has its drawbacks, too. The dogs whine for my attention, the laundry beckons me across the hall from my office, and the refrigerator is far too close for comfort.
