I love the days that I get to work from home, like today, and tomorrow, not only because I don't have to wake up early (I usually do anyway), not only because I can knit while I read through a proposal or write an email, and not only because I get to wear whatever I want, including pajama pants -- but because I think my cat truly enjoys having someone at home some days during the week.
It might be a silly idea, but I get the feeling she actually misses me when I'm away, and on these days when I work from home, she sits in the chair next to my computer desk, watching what I'm doing, taking a nap, purring when she'd like to be loved on, and just generally spending time together. When I get up to eat something or work in a different room, she follows me, like my very own attentive assistant. If I want to, she'll even clear my desk for me (by knocking everything off into the floor! Her organization methods leave something to be desired.)
Do you have a 'personal assistant' who keeps you company at home?
