I try to do a new blog post for Princess Piggy Poo every Sunday. Mostly, I’ve met my obligation but sometimes I have freelance job deadlines on the weekend and get swamped. Invariably, when I miss a post, I feel Princess Piggy Poo’s disappointment.
At first, I thought it was because she felt slighted; however, recently I realized it’s because she’s worried that I work too much. It’s enough to be away from home 12 hours each weekday for work, but weekends should belong to fun.
Making time for what makes you and your guinea pig happy is important. When you’re out of balance, your pet knows. Princess Piggy Poo definitely has some kind of cavy intuition.
While I don’t recommend making major life decisions based on perceived advice from your furry friend; Princess Piggy Poo will be happy to know that from now on, I’ll be working from home. More cuddles, floor time and veggie snacks for her and, no more commuting, sitting in an office or having a supervisor for me. I like to think that I’m my own boss now, although the truth is that Princess Piggy Poo has a new direct report.
