Could You Work In the Face of This?

Mewsette and Giuseppe make it difficult to concentrate.

If you had to look at this all day, could you get any work done?

This is what I have to deal with at my computer day after day, and I ask you: is this fair? Should I have to deal with this sort of distraction while I’m trying to earn my living—and theirs? Do they do this intentionally to test me and see how committed I am to what I do? Or should I just be committed? How many photos do you suppose I took of these two while they cuddled cheek to cheek right there in front of me? Do you think I got anything at all done?

And if you have any doubt at the difficulty of working with such distractions, here is the full view of them on my desk, right in front of me.

It is impossible.

This is hopeless. There is nothing I can do but gaze at them and take photos.

Somebody make it stop!

    I think your ability to decide has been decided! This could be the valentines card of the year!

      Carolyn, as I worked out my Valentines cards I considered this and several others, but those background objects really throw it off. I’m going to have to start cleaning the place up…

    Why would we want it to stop when you post these lovely pictures! Your true work is documenting them every moment, is it not?

    No wonder you didn’t get any work done!!! How long did they stay like that? I think they do it on purpose to get the human’s attention!!! Thanks for sharing!
