Oh man really? Back to work? What a shame. Two days working from home sure were a treat. I can’t deny that.
… thankful that Sandy did not damage or cause power outages in my building. I am hoping all the other east coasters are safe and sound. The damage in NY and NJ is horrific.
…pooped after my first ever treadmill workout. Who is that at the gym? I woke up Tuesday thinking I would do nada. Somehow my body found its way in the gym doing a 40 minute interval treadmill workout. Holy sweat was I dying, I don’t think I have kicked it that hard in a while. Lesson learned: I need to do that more often. It was actually the first time in my apartment gym which is kind of sweet. Ignoring the creepy man that just walked around staring at all the girls working out. NO JOKE.
…scheming a break out around 2 pm. I am a tad stir crazy and need to get out. Luckily there is no wind, just some drizzle so I should be fine. I am going to see what is open. Not going to lie, I got an email about World Market having a 50% off sale ONLY today. It better be open! (Edit: I did venture out, did a lot of walking around but sadly no fun purchases at World Market!)
…crossing my fingers that mentor sessions will be cancelled Wednesday and Thursday night. Tuesday’s was obviously cancelled because there is no school in DC. I think it may be a long shot to have schools cancel again but you never know. Do you know what that would mean? That would mean coming home from work at 6 pm instead of 830 pm. HOLLA!
… craving some roasted squash. I had the best roasted squash last night. Nom nom. I want more.
… forcing myself to NOT start a new tv show on Netflix. We all know how that went last time… the last thing I need is another time suck. Don’t do it Alex, walk away!
…writing tidbits of my post for Sloane’s #freEDom campaign for next Tuesday. It is reminding me of why I starting blogging.
… annoyed that the heat in my apartment isn’t working because the paint has made the buttons on the heater stick. Also, I don’t pay for the heat so the building controls it meaning it is chilly up in here.
Can’t say I have not enjoyed the last two days working from home. I felt so much more productive and rested than I have in a while. Take out the two hour or more metro travel and you really get a huge time chunk back. Plus, internet at my work is like molasses so having speedy internet just helps all projects move along. Why can’t working from home be a requirement? I have a feeling getting back into Wednesday routine will hit hard, real hard.
Questions: What are your plans for this hump day? Are you more productive or less productive when you can work from home?
