So while I haven’t attempted to assemble those drawers, I have set up a make-shift office for myself in the kitchen, where the telephone/internet line is. Ideally, I will (very soon, hopefully) hook up the wireless modem I have in a box (one of the many) so that I will be able to work sitting down in my actual office around the corner, rather than standing up at the kitchen counter. But until then, this is it.
It feels great to be slowly getting back to a regular routine. My kids were both back in school today, for the first time since last week after having picked up some mild viral fever/cough/scratchy throat combination at school, first two-and-a-half, then six. But they are better now and their illness has been my convenient excuse for not having found the time to unpack most of the boxes before starting back to work.
So far I am only doing shortish things for a few clients, but it feels so, so good. I don’t know what it is, but there is something so incredibly satisfying about completing a project and sending it off and away and moving on to the next assignment.
Or maybe it’s just that I really hate unpacking.
