home

house
i often hear women at work say,
"I wanted to stay home today,"
"Can I go home now?"
"I want to be at home."
i wonder what it is that drives us to be "at home."
we work too many hours, we have creative lives that pull us, we have children to be with, we have a santuary that calls.
how do we balance our home & work life in a society that does not recognize nor honor this deep need?
if i could, i would stay home today.

I'd really like to be at your home today too.

Has that color of paint been approved by the neighborhood homeowners' group?

I love your home! And I am completely in agreement on the nesting instinct of women. Oh, how I love being at home. :)

You can. Stay home today, that is. I treated myself to a sick day on Monday. Wednesdays are great call-in-sick days. Helps break up the work week.
