Working everyday has simplified my life significantly.
I no longer find myself wondering: What shall I do now?
Shall I watch another episode of What Not to Wear?
Shall I go to the craft store to get some new yarn?
Shall I visit my friends/family/relatives?

The weekends are a little trickier, but basically one day is for chores, the other is for rest. Not too complicated.

Another great view from the conference room:
For all the stuffiness of the legal profession, I certainly do work in a place of beauty and light. How ironic.
