Not that I don't love my job!
My job allows me to work from home once a week, or if I'm not feeling well, or if I need to meet the cable guy.
On those days, these are my officemates:
They are MUCH quieter than my officemates the rest of the week!
I've also been working (on my bloggin busyness) from this new office locale:
I've wanted to do this for a long time. I got back from Mexico...sigh, Mexico......where we walked a mile or two every night on the beach and my knees didn't hurt at all! So I was anxious to keep walking, but alas, my knees do still hurt when I walk in the States. And this means that the earth is not round!! Gravity is obviously not as strong in Mexico and so my knees do not hurt when I walk!!! What an interesting unplanned scientific study I just did!!! I think I need to investigate further...maybe try someplace like Cuba and see if the results are the same. I'll keep you posted.
But anyway - my treadmill is now a workable desk!! I have seen this before, from a blogger who set up an elaborate desk around his treadmill, with a pull-out keyboard and printer shelf and everything. He had blueprints and diagrams and colored charts and screws and bolts and fasteners.
I did something similar that involves a shelf I bought for one of the living rooms that didn't end up matching so I put it in the garage intending to return it. It just happens that it is just the right size to reach from one arm of my treadmill to the other with a little extra room on the edge (safety feature!).
There's about a three inch gap from the shelf and the front of the reader portion of the treadmill (cause the electronic part is curved)...but the laptop is bigger than three inches so it's not an issue.
And one of the arms of the treadmill is right along the wall, so the overhang on the shelf is actually only on one side...but balancing things is over-rated, right?
I've only almost dropped my laptop (which belongs to my company) twice. The first time doesn't count though cause it was on my first trial walking period.
Who needs blueprints????
**A very important key factor to this is that you can't really walk fast. Or even at a normal walk-the-mall pace. However, walking on a treadmill for an hour at a 1.5mph pace is still infinitely better than sitting on the couch for an hour reading blogs, right?
