So It Does Cloud Up In Tucson.

It is monsoon season here in Tucson, Arizona, and I must say I’m enjoying the dramatic weather changes that brings.  I mean, as much as I love the seemingly never-ending stream of sunny days, I find I’ve missed actual, well, weather.   You know, like clouds and rain and such.   So it is good to know that there is a season here where it does get cloudy, and it has even rained!   Four times so far that I’ve personally witnessed, and two of them were pretty heavy (the other two times, well, if there were at least enough water drops to be noticeable on my front window, that counted as rain).

Down Side

One of the down sides of working from home is, I cannot WAIT to get out of my computer room at the end of the work day, and it is harder and harder to go in there for enjoyment… like the enjoyment I get sharing on my blog.  Hence the rare nature of my posts any more.  Which sort of blows because I really miss blogging!  I think I need to seriously look at finding a local job before I go completely bat crazy.   I mean I’m anti-social by nature, and working from home pretty much guarantees I hardly ever ever ever get out of the house and talk to real people.

Monday Mornings in my Home Office

I am under constant supervision from the most rigid of taskmasters.  Yes, that is toilet paper on my desk.  I go through a lot of PPTP (Parrot Poop Toilet Paper) around here.
