I left the house twice in five days this holiday weekend. I love staying home, but there’s something to be said for going to a job where there are other humans: Friday I caught myself worrying that Toby doesn’t go to school (no, don’t know where that came from) and Saturday I thought, “If I just don’t watch the last two episodes of Doctor Who, then the Doctor and Rose can still be together!”

I think if I were ever to freelance from home I’d have to belong to a gym, or a knitting club, or a book club–just something to remind me that people use words to talk, not meows.
