I’ve been working away in my new home office (ex-nursery) on Saturdays over the past couple months, getting a lot done on my grant. I’ve had a paper accepted, another one submitted and in review, twenty-two interviews done, and over 80,000 words written since January 1. It’s a cozy little room, with faux wood desk, faux wood filing cabinets, and real drive and ambition powering the place. Everything’s here, now, from laptop to monitor to printer, and even a pair of guppies swimming in a little aquarium in the corner.
But do you know what I like the most about my home/office? When the lightning flashes and thunder roars late at night, two little blond boys can toddle from their room next door, take my hand, and lead me back to their room for cuddles to help them go back to sleep. Any. time. they need me.
G’night, y’all. They need me.
