What did you do today:-)

These are "fighting" words in my house.  "Working from home" especially with the creation of Stylish Patina has created a new and interesting dynamic in our house.  My hubby will either laugh when he reads this or this post will be "fighting word!", laugh...maybe he won't check the blog:-).

We adapted pretty easily to being married and living together even through a home renovation and marrying of four dogs but the concept of me working at home also seems to mean work, clean, cook and run all the errands:-).  We are used to me being the 1st one out the door to work and the last one home due my jobs in the past.  So many days we will have a conversation that goes like this...

"J" -- "Did you go to Home Depot for xx" and I say "No, I didn't get to it today" and then it comes..."Well you were home all day, what did you do?".  This is when I want to strangle my husband and scream at the top of my lungs "WORK".  I'm exaggerating a  bit but you get the point:-) I have to say my hubby is VERY supportive of everything I do.  Soooo, what did I do today?
