Just me and the fur kids and a super Wordy Wednesday

The hubby has been out of town this week which means it has been very quiet around the house. I don’t know why the house feels so empty when he is gone, but it does! When you work from home and your office mate is away, it makes for a lonely day.

What do I do when the hubby is away (besides slave away on my computer)? I watch TV shows that he doesn’t like to watch . .like American Idol. Well, I read blogs and glance at the television occasionally. Unfortunately this time while he is away, there are no dancing shows!

Tonight is his third night out of town and FINALLY Ashley has decided that she would grace me with her presence on the sofa. She is a daddy’s girl and apparently daddy is the only one with an appropriate lap. (whatever!) Everyone just seems a little off their game while the hubby is away!

I’m feeling a lot of angst about my new job. I have to IM my “lead” when I get on the computer and they want to know what I am doing every second of the day. I hate it. If you give me a job to do, I will get it done, post haste – no need to worry! I am a deadline drive, self starter. She sent me a few emails last week and then IM’d me to ask if I had received them. Um, Yes – why wouldn’t I have received them? Then she asked that I always reply when I receive an email, so she knows that I received it. UGH.

It’s okay. I’m grateful to have some steady income and I know that I’ll find a way to make it work. I’m also doing some freelance work for my previous company doing their quarterly magazine design, at least that will be fun. Add in a website or two and I’m doing okay 🙂

I shared this link in a comment on Kristine’s blog yesterday (OMG, if you haven’t seen the adorable kittens she is fostering, you should head over there), and I thought I would share it here as well. I think it is pretty cute and an excellent reminder that we are always a little too hard on ourselves: Be Kind to Cute Animals and Yourself. So if you have been mean to yourself, remember that you are a soft and adorable creature!

Here’s a little baby Cali to remind you to be kind to yourself!

Is she adorable, or what? Hope you had a great Wednesday ! The hubby comes home tomorrow – YAY!!
