No Time for Blogging!

Now that we've moved into our new office building and gotten settled in, work is getting back to normal. In fact, it's busier than ever. And since my new office has walls and a door, unlike the cube in my old office, I am actually concentrating better on my work than ever before. I even lose track of time and end up staying until 8:30 p.m.! That has to stop!

Of course, this is detrimental to my blogging - and my visiting other people's blogs. Lucky thing NaBloPoMo has ended!

So for tonight (so I can leave before 8:30) I'll just leave you with a few haiku - and will catch up over the weekend. Baxter has been complaining to me that he hasn't had a chance to blog in AGES. I promised him he'd get the next post.

Work is so busy
I have no time for blogging
It makes me so sad!

My reader is full
And my sidebar is tempting
But I must work on.

My new office rocks
With its door and its ceiling
Privacy galore!

I can write in peace
And talk aloud to myself
I get much more done.

Hazelnut coffee
And our own little lunchroom
It feels so cozy.

We're on our own now
No more Big Corporation
It's better this way.

My commute is short
Though it's a longer trip,
It is all highway!

Life is pretty good
Maybe I'll stay here awhile
Instead of retire.

The stock market's down
And so's my 401k.
I don't have a choice!

Luckily for me
I'm now remotivated
And I will survive!

Your haiku tells me that your new situation suits you. I'm very glad for you. It's wonderful when you can like what you do, where you do it, and for whom you do it.

Thanks, DCup - I think the change helped a lot because I was heartily sick of it before we moved. But being in a less stifling corporation makes it more fun, for sure.

Sounds like a good situation. Look forward to reading Baxter.

Of your happiness -
what is more important here?
That? Internets? Sheesh! ;-)

Sounds like you are going through a transformational period. Take your time and we'll be hear when you have time again!

I know how it goes: sometimes it's in the flows...other times it's no, no noes.

funny how they thought the cube was such a good/cheap office solution, but the noise & distraction makes for a funky work space.

Oh I would love to have my own enclosed space to work & shut out the chatter & chaos.

glad you are liking it.

when work is fun than is it really work?

walls, door, ceiling AND hazelnut coffee?!? Sounds so tempting, I start to worry about what is hidden in the basement (just kidding).

sorry but I have infected you with the story virus!

Good for you on your new office! I wish I had a bit more privacy where I work. However, I like the fact that someone else does the driving for me when I go to work; even if they do get into a few accidents every now and then.
