Unfamiliar environment

This weekend, I’m staying at my mom’s house. They’re out of town and I’m watching the dogs.

Trying to follow your normal routine in a different environment is strange.

Although I have access to all the same things as any other day—food, a space to work, a comfortable bed….

It’s not the same.

I feel out of place. It even feels like I can’t do the same quality work.

Our brains are odd in that they designate certain environments for certain tasks and regimens.

I love these dogs…but God am I looking forward to going back home.
