Unfortunately, today I am not working on my own laptop, so I am at my local public library. My poor baby has developed a virus and is being cared for at Staples.I almost feel like I am missing a limb without my computer. The funny thing is, I am old enough to remember what the world was like before we became dependent on computers, so I really shouldn't be tripping (LOL) ! But I am!I can't help it!

Working from home can be fun, but it easy to get distracted or lack motivation at times.
