I was going to say that this day "got away from me," but the truth is something different. I turned my back on the day and let it escape. Seize the day? Ha! I hid behind the door until it went away.
There's nothing quite as satisfying as a nap when you really, truly need one. It's better than glazed donuts. It's better than Star Wars. It's better than... well... it's very, very good. Troubles melt like lemon drops, except they don't get everything all sticky.
I wonder how much I would have got done today if I had to work in an office. Not as much, probably. Either I would have called in sick or they'd have taken a quick look and sent me home. Or maybe I'd have just drifted off at my desk. I remember doing that a lot in the last weeks before I started working at home. Now I can do all the sleeping and working I need to, and I never have to pretend to be busy.
Okay, when I answer the phone, I do have to pretend that I was busy. It's no great hardship to answer on the second or third ring if the first ring wakes me up. Anyway, I get more work done at night, after the phones stop, than I ever do during the day. Not tonight, though. Tonight is for sleeping.
