I Should Be At Work
I'm stuck at home today because they are installing my generator - the one that is costing me an arm and a leg but hopefully I may never need to use. The work is a little involved because I need bigger gas lines in the basement.
I hate these unplanned disruptions in my routine. Normally, by this time I would have been in my office for over an hour. I would have had my first cup of coffee. I would have checked and answered my email and phone messages. I would have chatted with my colleagues and offered my opinion or encouragement on what they are working on.
Instead, I'm absent-mindedly "watching" this segment of the Today Show on lady's shoes for the summer, playing with my laptop, and trying to keep a casual eye on the guys installing the generator. I hope they know what they are doing - because I don't. And I have to calm the nerves of my wife, who hates disruptions even more than I do.
I miss my office!
