Ohhhhhhhhhh, a kindred spirit. Many hugs to you, woman! I feel you. We are cut from the same cloth.

Haha, true! It just sounds so luxurious and indulgent for some reason, but you're totally right.

I think the difference here is that you work in an office four days a week. Then your one day home is a little treat! But if you work at home five days, like me, it's a bit different.

Before & After: This Blah Balcony Goes Bold

I work from home, and I dress for it. I feel sad and gross if I don't "get ready." I never, ever stay in pajamas, even on non-working days. That doesn't appeal to me. Every weekday morning, I dress in what is, for me, "work clothes" (kinda funky dress/tights/skirts/etc. combos--ideal for a "creative office" setting). I put on makeup and do my hair. Then I drop the kids off at school and come home feeling totally ready and professional.

Now I just need to fix up my work area a bit more. That's what Apartment Therapy is for ;).

I am *so* thrilled to hear someone else hates water chestnuts as much as I do. They are positively wretched.

And I should add that my children *love* the classics we've read, and they will continue to love them throughout their lives. I shudder at the implication that classics are not fun to read.


3 Time Tested Tips: How To Choose A Book A Child Will Cherish

Ahh..as the mom of two book lovers, I disagree with both number 1 and number 3. We love our anthologies, both for family reading, and for my five year old to sit on the bed and pore through. As far as skipping the classics, well, the former English instructor and forever bibliophile in me completely cringes at that thought.
