My wife is taking a sick day today. It’s tricky to navigate this because I work at home. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for the extra time together – our rehearsal/performance schedules lately have meant that we see each other for the few minutes each day before we go to bed and after we wake up in the morning.

But you’ll notice it’s after eleven o’clock in the morning and I’m just getting to this blog entry. I don’t have an office, so I work at the dining room table. Unfortunately, that’s just a few feet away from the living room couch, where my wife is watching the mid-morning news on TV. It’s very distracting.

On the plus side, our cats are loving all the extra attention today. It’s really adorable.
