We moved in to our house six years ago next month. I can hardly believe it has been that long. But what I really can’t believe it that I spent the better part of that time – more than 5 of those years, in fact, sharing an office with my husband. It is a wonder we are both still standing. Remarkably, from the time we were moving in, we planned to share an office. We thought it was a brilliant idea. But it wasn’t.
You see, we both work from home. Neither of us are ‘quiet’ people. And my job actually requires some semblance of solitude. When I need to write – I need to think – and quietly. So his conference calls, his sudden bouts of ‘funny’, and his random thoughts just didn’t make for a productive environment for me.
Fortunately, we came up with the perfect solution – one that created a space just for him – and one just for me.
And now, my office is my sanctuary.
