My request to work part time from home has been approved. At least for now, and at least till the end of the contract, which is in 6 weeks. And I still haven't meshed out the details with my contractor, so there's always that. Not that I expect that to be an issue, I just don't know exactly who I'm supposed to talk to and about what. And I'm not even sure if I'm allowed to let it be known that I now work part time from home. What I do know is that I am on task for 20 hours a week. I also know that it will be a rare week that I have 20 hours worth of work to do. I figure as long as I'm getting everything done that is asked of me (same as when I was working 40 hours a week, and spending at least half of that surfing the internet from my cube...) then we're golden.
So I guess there is a moral to our summer time drama: Sometimes God needs things to be just so for His will to take effect, and while waiting for His perfect timing, you sometimes have to put up with a lot of shit in the meantime. I'm hoping that's what the moral of our story is, because if the bottom falls out again, I don't know what I'll do. Probably just drown my sorrows in more chocolate ice cream, but we all know that that's not getting me anywhere.
