New Office Mate

Did I mention that I have a new office mate?

(He's kind of weird, but he's also pretty cute, so I guess he can stay.)

Clearly, I am so busy and important, with many files to staple.
While my arm is at a really awkward angle.

Of course.
When we found out in December that John was going to be working from home, people immediately started asking me things like:

"Oh, won't that be AWFUL?"  

"But he'll be around ALL DAY!"

"He'll be watching everything you're doing.!"  (WHAT?!  You mean he'll know that I'm in sweats all day?! He'll see that I eat a mid-morning breakfast of brownies?!  He'll know that I watch episodes of Teen Mom 2 during lunch?!?)

But you know what?  I married a guy that I LOVE to be around.  As much as possible.  So it's literally been awesome.

(Despite the fact that he asks me to dial phone numbers for him about 97 times a day.)

(Or the fact that, since the trashcan is on my side of the office, he asks me to throw things away for him about 97 times a day.)

(Does that make me a secretary/janitor?  I may need a raise.)

(Or the fact that we actually fought over the tape dispenser's placement in the room last week.)

(Or the fact that I just noticed that said tape dispenser has magically made it's way onto my desk......hmmmmmmm.) 

But still.  Mostly awesome.  On a different note, Ally Grace is going to fly on an airplane for the very first time tomorrow morning!  I'm pretty sure it's a toss-up over who's going to freak out more:  me or her. 

(Never mind, that's easy.  It's definitely going to be me. John may or may not have his hands full.)

Feel free to pray for us.

You and your man are about the cutest couple in cyber-space, Sherri! I used to share a cubicle with my husband, and I totally loved it! He, however, had a different opinion about it....probably because he stays on task way better than I do! :) Love your blog!
