Mr Chiots and I both work from home, which has it’s benefits and drawbacks. We really love it and wouldn’t trade it for the world, but it’s difficult to take time off. If we’re home, we’re usually working. When we go out, we usually have work related errands that we tack on to whatever we’re doing. It’s extremely rare for us to take an entire day and do nothing work related. Yesterday we finally had…
…work related at least. We did work a bit in the morning, but at 9:30 am we headed south to Portland to see Skyfall, the new James Bond movie at an iMax theatre. If you’ve been reading here for a while, you know my love for 007. If you are my friend on facebook you know how much I’ve been anticipating this new movie. After the movie we went out to Flatbread for a late lunch/early dinner, then we stopped at Portland Architectural Salvage to look around. A night out is not complete for Mr Chiots if there’s no ice cream, so we stopped for that as well.
While we were at dinner we were talking about how weird it was to not be working. Normally we would have had a meeting scheduled or something else work related. I didn’t even take my camera (hence the word images above). Even though my blog is a hobby, it can be like work sometimes. The day was perfect, exactly what we needed.
When was the last time you had a day just to yourself? What did you do?Filed under Miscellaneous | Comments (13)
