|Anticipating work from home...

Life proceeds apace.
Over the last couple weeks, my brother Aaron and I hit Ikea and a hardware store to get my desk and overhead light set up for my new at-home workspace, then Saturday my brother came out and spent ten hours drilling through ceilings and walls to run a pair of Ethernet cables up to my attic so I would be able to connect my work and play computers directly to modem and router. He really went above and beyond, and I need to be sure to do something nice for him for Christmas.
This is the week I have to hold myself ready for jury duty, calling in the evening before to check and see if they need me the next day. They haven't needed me Monday, Tuesday, or today, but they might still want me tomorrow or Friday. This makes it a little difficult to plan around getting my work computer stuff moved home. We've scheduled a meeting for Friday morning, but that'll only work if I don't have to be down at the courthouse on that day. I'm still not entirely sure how it's all going to go. If I'm not able to make Friday, the next opportunity will be Tuesday. But at least then I'll be free of juridical obligations.
I can hardly wait 'til I've got everything set up and working at home. No more getting into the restroom on break to find all the stalls occupied. No more nearly running into someone when I turn the corner to go to the kitchen or restroom. No more having to step outside my house on days when the world is full of ice and snow (or even just rain). No more having to waste an hour a day on the bus.
Will I be able to resist the charms of the distractions of home? I think so. In any case, I look forward to being able to find out.
