Besides big confessions and big travel, there's been another change afoot in my world lately: I'm working in an office again.

Crazy, right?

Two things prompted the daytime move: first, my work life keeps been getting busier and busier - I was constantly in meetings anyway; second, my company opened a satellite office in DC near my primary client. My schedule is in flux enough that I'll probably still spend more time in my home office each week than the average full-time employee, but I must say, I've been pleasantly surprised by how much I've liked having a professional home away from... home. Being able to get to work in no time at all is great, too - my commute is incredibly laid-back.

The telecommuting lifestyle rocks for many reasons, and I'll definitely miss some of them: the ability to roll out of bed five minutes before start time, the ability to wear whatever I want, the ability to run errands during the day when everything's empty, and the ability to cook my own food for lunch. But my new office isn't a bad deal, either - I have food trucks galore and the Nationals baseball stadium right outside my door. Now if I could just figure out how to wake up early...

Rollin' with the changes over here. It feels pretty good.

The only things in my work digs right now besides work: letterpress and a baseball schedule. You know, the basics.


  1. My husband, who is in the same profession as you are (planning, right?), FINALLY is going back to work in an office after a year of telecommuting. Unlike you, he HATED working from home, so I wonder if he will miss at all the little perks like lunch at home and casual clothing? I think I would!

    (You don't work for Jacobs Engineering do you?!)

  2. Congrats on the new digs. I've never worked from home (full time) and it is my biggest dream to be able to. I have a super flexible arrangement right now, and I probably work from home once a week - but having to get dressed every day is a drag.


C'mon, make my day...
