House keeping.

Thanks to all you lovely people who gave me information on Napier's Number in previous post. Turns out (as you well know) you were exactly right. :) Being an adherent to the loosey-goosey arts, I certainly appreciate the toothsome symmetry of the exact sciences, even if I can't entirely wrap my brain around same. Thanks again!


I'm up into the wee hours tidying up the house. An IT guy from work will be here mid-morning tomorrow to get my computer all set up for working from home. *cautiously optimistic squeeing here*


Strangely, on the eve of starting to work from home, I interviewed yesterday for a promotion. I think I'm unlikely to land the job, but I was complimented the interviewer said he was pleased I applied. I won't be hurt for someone else to get the job-- I only care that they give it to someone who knows our department, and I think they've got a great field of candidates from which to choose. Still, it was nice to feel like they were excited about me as a candidate.

I'm excited about working from home. :)

I work from home, and most of the time I love it. I can work in my jammies (and have), and no one cares. It's become more challenging since the kids arrived, but it's nice to not have to shell out for child care. The only downside I see is that you just can't ever escape your's always there.

But I get to set my own hours and I don't have to make that pesky commute to my office every day (which, for me, would require a six-hour drive). It's a lovely thing.

How cool you finally get to do that! They did an 'experimental' work-at-home program at my former job, and it failed. Guess they overloaded people with work, just as they did in the building! I hope your circumstances are better!

Working from home is really nice. You get to play your music really loud and talk to the cat without getting disdainful looks.
