i didn't have to put on real pants today.




i got the order to start working from home today. to say that i was excited would be an understatement. i wanted to chronicle this day, mostly because it's such a rare thing. here are some thoughts from my first day working from home:


-  there are going to be kinks to work out at the beginning. i had already decided it wasn't going to work out, and i had only been twenty minutes into the workday. technical difficulties are going to happen. it's best to take a deep breath + know that it will work out.

-  we don't have an office space in our home, so i am working out of the camper. it was a crazy idea at first, but it works! i have privacy. i have my own space. i can listen to music without headphones. i can open the windows + feel the fresh air. it's a pretty great set up right now.

-  i didn't have to put on real pants. i told myself that the first couple days could be very casual. i did put makeup on, but i haven't changed out of my leggings yet. now i am thinking i need some cool house slippers.

-  i need to be better about getting up and taking a break. that's on me. i will do better tomorrow.

-  i am so, so grateful for this opportunity. in my department, it was easiest for me to work from home. i don't take it for granted one bit. the company i work for is so great to allow us to work from home during this insane time.

-  i can pop my head out and see the boys when i want. i love getting to say hi when i go in the house for water or a bathroom break. jared has been furloughed for three weeks, but we are still thankful.


day one was pretty good. the beginning was a little rough, but it all worked out. i discovered this album + listened to it a lot. i drank coffee + diffused oils + refrained from working on my puzzle that's in the camper next to me. now i'm off to drink more coffee on our pergola + enjoy the evening. our lives right now are so weird + insert basically every emotion, but i have felt the Lord so close these past few weeks. He is my joy.
