This never happened at the office

By Robin Dearing

Don't get me wrong, I love working from home. There are so many luxuries, including not having to wear proper pants. But there are also a plethora of distractions that never happen at the office. Here's one :

And honestly, I do miss seeing my co-workers. I was definitely smarter when I worked around talented and knowledgable people all day. I used to know all about current events and what's going on in the world. I used to have a somewhat informed opinion on things.

Now, I yell at the kitten for taking my pens and drinking out of my glass. I yell at the dog for making a racket with the dog gate. I talk to my mom about what's going to be for dinner or what the kitten and/or dog is doing. I drive my mom and daughter to school and appointments. Some times I lie down or do yoga or goof off and look at pictures of other kittens on the Internet.

Oh, and I work on my classes.  I truly love teaching art history and have never regretted leaving my 40-hour-a-week office job.

So, I guess taking a kitten head in the water glass is just quirk of doing what I love.

Working from home is a lot harder than one would assume. Hang in there.

Having a kitten at home is more distracting than when an employee brings their cute baby into the office because the kitten is being cute and distracting every. single. day.
