I am feeling a little depressed today. I was at work and one of the salesmen dropped off some papers at my desk. He called me later to ask if I had found them, they were directly in front of my computer and were as tall as a ream of paper. He said "Just wanted to make sure you found them since you weren't home when I dropped them by."

Not Home? As if I live at the Jarvis Press. Oh, wait. I do! I spend more time there than at my apartment. I have my own phone line, which is more than I can say when it comes to the house. My screensaver comes on and comic book covers appear. I can't even think of the last time I was home long enough for my laptop to have a screen saver turn on.

It almost makes me sick to think that the average person puts in more time at their job than they do at home. We make work as tolerable as possible. Putting up pictures, bringing our coffee mugs, maybe a radio or an oscillating fan or space heater.

I just heard "Not Home" and the rest of my day was ruined. Not to mention I found out how muh weight I need to loose to be considered not overweight. And I got a long way to go. I hope to be able to salvage what little time I have at home this evening. Of course, I just put five minutes into this blog, so I guess I don't have anything too pressing going on in my life.

Woe is me,

I have come across this same downer. I like my job (at least I like it better than you do yours at this point) but I still hate that I spend 8:00 to 5:00 there and then go home and have only about 4 to 5 hours to spend before I have to sleep and repeat and that time is filled with dinner, dishes, watering the yard, and if I am lucky, some time just to hang out. Rarely do I have time to read between the couple of TV shows that I watch, the crap listed above, and playing with my dog and spending time with Jess, since I don't see them all day. And those are the two people that I want to spend the most time with possible...

Thanks for making me depressed, HLM... at least you have Aerobics! :)

True, and finding out that I am 40 lbs overweight, I had better have aerobics. Oh to be rich and thin.

I think the depression bug is going around. It has certainly bitten me alot lately.
