Even though I am at home with my guys ..... Because the world is an evil place! If it was a happy place we would be able to get paid to do whatever we like! But look at the brightside.... you will be that much happier when you get home!

It is so hard for me to leave for work in the morning . While I put my make-up on Scrotie climbs in my lap and then when I put my shoes on, basically anytime I sit down for a minute he curls up in my lap. Its heart breaking to move him and than to leave him :Sad:

Why am I stuck at work today instead of at home snuggling with them? :Frown:

Brooke, I ask myself the same question everyday...sigh. Today while I was getting ready for work, Piglet was rubbing up against me wanting to be petted while looking at me with her big sad eyes. It took everything I had to leave her this morning. :Sad: I wish our workplaces would allow us to bring our pets with us...OR allow us to do our work at home so we can be with our pets. :Idea:

Helen is in the back with her face buried in the blankie (she always sleeps face down like that!) Walter is the one missing...he was laying in his infamous bed.

We used to be allowed to bring pets to work. Harold used to come with me all the time (until he got sick, I didn't want to stress him out). I really enjoyed bringing him in, but I definitely wasn't as productive when he was here. He also took a poop on someone's desk once, but it was okay, because she totally deserved it and he got lots of praise from everyone in the office that day!! :LOL: They recently changed the pet policy because someone brought their dog in with fleas and we had to have pest control come and treat the place. I keep reminding everyone that my hairless cats don't get fleas, so they should be exempt from the rule but no one will listen to me! :Angry:

:LOL: That is so AWESOME!! I can think of a few people's desks I wouldn't mind if Sophie pooped on! :LOL::LOL:

I hate leaving Sophie in the morning too. I walk out the door each day with a sad feeling and I hate it! :Angry:

I stayed home today because I had a fever & other general yuckiness. All 3 of my boys have been stuck to me like glue and SOOOO well behaved (highly unusual)! Why can't I work from home everyday?!?!

I know! ...although, Nelson likes to plant his big naked butt right on the keyboard whenever I'm working on the computer. I can't promise I'd get very much work done, but I'd be a much happier person every day!!

PS - I hope you feel better!

I agree, Kalliee. It's a picture I would put as my desktop image so when the day is going rough at work, I can think about what I have to look forward to at home: Relaxation with no worries!

Most people at work put pictures related to the time of year or pictures of their family on their desktop. . .I'm always putting pictures of Stella and/or Izzy on my desktop. These ARE my children! :) People just expect it now.

My current avatar pic is also my work desktop photo. And, if I'm feeling especially homesick, I'll log on to youtube from work and watch all my cat home videos a couple of times! (Only my Sphynx Lair friends would understand this!!)

Sometimes when I'm at work and I miss Sophie I find myself striking up conversations with coworkers asking them about their cats. Then I take over the conversation to talk about the latest things going on with Sophie :LOL:. If I'm not with her I'm probably talking about her and always thinking about her. :Dizzy:

I've bored all the people at the bodyshop I'm stationed at and all my coworkers with GEICO, but we get lots of walk in customers too and if I can fit it in with the I'm sorry you can't drive and crashed your car with stuff on Meecho I will.:Laugh:
