I really need to get into the habit of taking a mid-day break

Because now my eyeballs are glazing over and I need a break but the sun is sinking and the idea of going outside is completely unappealing.

I tell myself this every day around 2pm, but it's practically impossible to pry myself out of my house. I'm not agoraphobic or anything, but the lengths I have to go to to get myself to walk out the door sometimes are ridiculous. I wonder if it's a female thing, because I've run into this problem a lot with girl friends. They always want me to come to their house.

When I get rich, I'm going to hire my own girl to come over here and extricate me. I'll probably call her an "assistant" or "personal trainer" but what she actually is is an Amy Extrication Device (AED).

I wonder if I could patent that.

Girl thing? If so, then I'm really in touch with my feminine side ;) If I'm working from home I rarely go outside unless my wife drags me out to go for a walk with the kiddos.

Oh, thank god Mike posted first, I was paranoid that I was the 'girly' one!

Fortunately, I seem to have found a bit of a routine that's working for me at the moment and involves a break, but going outside?! Meh, I'll just switch from writing to twitter thanks! ;)

Amy,
I found you!!! Stopped by here and this was easy to find by the most time worn simple stalking technique on the planet now, googling a person's name.

This blog is very well done; conversational, witty, informative and informal yet intelligent. Congrats!

I will check out some of these links about esoteric communication devices or "twittery" things. I am impressed by the fact that there are so many and they are so powerful in these specific ways.

This is all very Gemini. Gemini heaven.

cheers,
Max

@mike, @ james
LOL, you guys kill me. Glad to know it's not necessarily a girly thing. To be honest, I don't really have the experience to know any different. All the guys I hang out with I see when we're all already "out".

@Max
Welcome! And thank you!

it's inertia...on days when i'm at home, it's very very very hard to get out of the house. but if i wake up and get right out, then i'm fine.

well I just moved in a new neighborhood, i was searching for property to rent in N1 for quite some time and i accidentally found this amazing website a la maison international with loads and loads of information about property to rent in N1 and its vicinity. I really like my new house. By the way my wife too dragged me out for some fresh air today early morning, although i am not of a morning person but i have to admit i really enjoyed it. i found links on your page very useful.
