I’m sneaking around
It’s like I’m having an affair or something. Except I’m not married. Or having sex for that matter.
BUT DO NOT TELL. This is a SECRET.
Every morning I get up, get dressed, and take Goldie to spend they day with my Mom while I go to the office.
I don’t go to the office.
I go home and put on my sweats and make coffee and sit in my comfy chair and work at home.
Then at 5 pm, I put my work clothes back on, trying like mad to remember what I had on that morning, including tracking down all the jewelry I have taken off during the day. I get in the car and drive to my mom’s house and tell her I had a nice day at the office.
The day I forgot and dyed my hair on my lunch hour was a little sketchy, but Mom didn’t seem to notice. If she noticed, she didn’t say anything.
I’m doing it because my mom needs the dog. She has visitors sometimes, of course, but Goldie really helps her make it through the days when she is all alone.
And I can’t tell her I am working at home because she’d insist I not bring the dog over because she would want ME to be able to spend time with my dog.
