I had a run-in with them last night. Gave a talk about changes at my museum and BAM! who should be in the audience but a group of them. The FFV. First Families of Virginia. A little daunting to talk about them when they're right there. Guess I'll need to get used to it. I'm surrounded by them now.
Anyway, I am doing my first working from home morning today before I head off on a field trip with a neighboring house museum curator to visit Gunston Hall and their curator. A day of curator fun. I love getting together with my kind. They just understand me and the language I speak. My regular friends pretend to listen but then get that sort of 'I think you're a little crazy and I have no idea what you're getting so worked up about' look as they glaze over.
This working from home thing is hopefully going to become a regular thing. I'm thinking once a week to allow me some quiet time for research and writing. I think my boss is on board with it. Plus, for me, it saves me mondo gas money from not having to trek almost 90 miles to and from work one day per week. Any words from the wise? Any hints on what to do or not do to make working from home enjoyable and efficient?
