Work week

It's funny. I had lunch with the missuz yesterday and I ran into a couple of friends on my way in to her office. Both asked me what I do during the week. It's funny. Honestly, the work week out of session involves some work for the clients, but it's obviously not nearly as busy as when the legislature is in session. This experience has made it awfully difficult for me to imagine going to sit in an office and gazing into a computer monitor for 9 hours a day.

I remember at a previous job the boss was pretty strict about the work day. You were to be in the office by the starting time and you weren't to leave before the official end of the day. In fact, I was approached at one point for leaving right at the end of the work day (even though I always arrived early). Apparently I was to hang around a little after the official end-point of the work day. I never really understood that. I would sit there at the end of the day and piddle around. If you have work due...of course you stick around and get it done. I'm also not saying that there isn't value in a normal work schedule, but good grief!

I love getting things done for my clients. And I like doing it at 4 a.m. when I wake up, or 3 in the afternoon after going to the grocery store or whatever. Mostly, however, I love not having to stare at my computer screen all day.
