One more weekend of faire.  One more week to get ready for a faire weekend.  This is the last “Monday” of faire . . . next week we’re open on Memorial Day Monday, so the whole Monday thing happens on Tuesday. 

Seven weekends in, and we’re exhausted—so this Monday was going to be hard for me, anyway.  Add to that, Kyle not feeling very well, and getting permission to work from home.  Not home sick, mind you — working from home.  So, I had to be mindful of his space and try to leave him alone.  That’s so hard for me.  When he’s with me, I want to be with him!  So, when he works from home I usually try to pretend he’s not really here. 😉

I love having Kyle at home, and if times stay tough, companies would be wise to encourage more of their folks who have jobs that can be performed from anywhere, to stay at home—saving energy in the office, saving the environment, and saving gasoline.  It translates to a higher quality of life for folks who would no longer have to fight traffic on their commute, and it represents a raise in pay for folks no longer having to spend so much on fuel and auto mainenance.  Happier employees all-around.  And, in an economic climate where pay increases are unheard of, and layoffs are a constant threat, it seems to me to be a no-brainer.  <sigh>

Today, it was harder to pretend Kyle wasn’t here, though.  I wasn’t feeling very good, either.  And, in fact, we spent much of the day in the same room—hard to ignore your beloved when he’s in the chair next to you!  I hope I didn’t distract too much.

I got a lot of work done—computer stuff, product orders, and laundry!  Never left the house, though, so the errands will have to happen tomorrow.  We got caught up on some TV watching in the evening—Desperate Housewives was a bit edgy—at least the season cliffhanger ending came after the life and death situation was resolved!

Today’s photo . . . the many colours of our laundry!  I’m not really proud of how messy the space looks, but I liked the colours.
