I just tried to plug my headphones into my ear. Like, not the ends that are supposed to go on your ears. I was surprised by how uncomfortable it felt before I realized what had happened.|
In other exciting news, I've shifted to a contract position at my job, which means that I'll probably work a lot less, and I get to work remotely again. Along with a couple other remote contract jobs, the idea is that I'm home and being very efficient with the hours that I work for other people. Part of this is to get more time with the family, but the "official" reason is that Nate and I really want to finish that game we'd been working on. Things went on a hiatus while I was actually going into an office every day for the last three months and Nate was holding down the fort (turns out two-year-olds who don't nap anymore don't let you get much work done, WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT?). But this has been hanging over our heads, the timing is good to take a "break" from full time jobs, and we want to have the damn thing done so that we can move on to whatever happens next.
It's our first week trying this new setup, and the idea right now is that we switch off days—some days Nate works and I watch the toddler, other days vice versa. If you're interested in hearing how that works out, I'm sure I'll ramble at length about it sometime in the future.
It's fun, the answer to the question, "So, what do you do?" just got a lot more interesting.
