This week has marked my return to the world of offices and packed lunches. As I mentioned last week, I’m renting some desk space in downtown DC because I was getting super lonely working from home all the time. I know working from home is super sweet and a luxury, and it’s awesome a few days a week, but having done it every single day for years now meant I was starting to go a liiiiiittle stir crazy. As you probably know if you’ve read my blog for more than a minute, I’m a pretty social person – my mom was joking that even when I was little I’d always rather be right next to whoever was home vs. playing with toys in my room. I’m just happiest when I’m out and engaging with others.
I’ll likely do a mix of heading in to the office and working from home, depending on how many AnneTheRD client meetings I have in Virginia, etc. There are conference rooms at the office that I can use up to 4 hours per month, so I might meet some clients there, but I think mostly I’ll keep doing the coffee shop thing for that. As for virtual clients, there are call rooms at the office so that’s not a problem!
Anyway – Monday was my first day heading in so I packed myself a nice little lunch to enjoy. It had been quite awhile since I did this! I started with a huge handful of spinach, which I microwaved on high for 1 minute to wilt it:
