A few times a month, I head up to work in the office of my former employer. I work for them on a freelance basis now, but I go up from time to time to connect with everyone, attend some meetings, etc.
I must say that these days have become so “un” normal for me, yet they make me feel very good. It’s always great to get back into a familiar routine. When you’re a freelancer, your days are very different. Sometimes you’re so busy you don’t have time to brush your teeth, while other days you’re organizing every closet in your house because you’re so bored (I literally did this last week).
When I “go to work” it’s a different kind of day. I enjoy getting up and getting ready. I cherish the half of an hour drive BY MYSELF in the car (something a mom rarely gets). I take a moment to look at the trees and watch the wind blow, I laugh a little harder at morning radio, and I get excited thinking about the adult conversation that will take place in the office.
Plus, this is my view, so who could complain.
One of the little things I noticed this morning, something I forgot about, was how much I enjoyed reading the corny jokes that were posted every week outside of a building I used to pass. I hope today’s joke makes you smile.
“Haunted French Pancakes Give Me The Crepes.”
Classic. Corny. Kinda perfect.
If you’re a person who works at home and doesn’t get out much, change that today. Grab coffee with a friend or go visit an old workplace. Hey, you’ve already got a great joke to get the conversation going!
We should do coffee soon! That sounds nice. Without kids. Just moms or adults who enjoy a little laugh.
