It is too bad that humans are social animals. Sometimes it is best to be alone, but in the end it gets to you.

I have been cooped up in this house too long. Working from home has its drawbacks. I have alienated so many people without meaning to. My life is entirely consumed with work and taking care of family. I don't really spend much time with any of my friends. When the vast majority of your human interactions are with your nuclear family, and things get rough with one of them, it can be pretty detrimental to your mental well being.


  1. Hola:
    Ingrid, leí el libro de cuento "El Rostro y la Máscara", el cual me ha parecido muy bueno, pero, cuando leí los dos tuyos realmente quedé muy impresionada. Soy una maestra felizmente jubilada y disfruto mucho escribir. Me gustaría mucho mantener comunicación con usted para compartir nuestro mutuo gusto por la literatura. Espero su misiva.

  2. Meleah, you are the second person to say that. I think you are right.

  3. I have this same problem -- working from home definitely has its human interaction drawbacks. I already tend to isolate and I really have to make an effort to reach out. I haven't even reached out to do much blog commenting recently. ;)

  4. I know what you mean. I often feel isolated working from home. It is good to get out even if it's just for a walk. A girl's night out sounds like a blast!
