Working at Home

Working at Home

This has become my office.

I got up this morning, got a bowl of cereal and started working here. The tray really isn’t part of said office… it’s just a nice wedding gift that someone dropped off the other day, and well we haven’t moved it yet, and I discovered that it comes in useful to put that bowl of cereal on when I’m finished with it, so it may just stay.

Now this office is not for lack of a home office… I have one of those all set up. See.

It’s just that lately I’ve been way more productive in my big chair than actually at my desk.

I’m adjusting to this working from home thing. :)

In all seriousness though it is an adjustment, more of one than I thought it would be. It definitely has it’s perks, like not getting out of my pj’s until 2:30 in the afternoon like I did today, but it also has it’s challenges. It can be hard to focus at home, when there is so much else around me that needs to be done too.

I’ve been reading a bit on the internet, some tips about working from home, and I ran across one… and well, why don’t you just tell me what you think of it. The suggestion was to set a timer for 15 minutes, and work for 15 minutes and when the timer goes off, take a break. … I don’t know about you, but I would get very little done that way. I’ll just stick to my focusing chair for now, and not getting out of my pj’s til 2:30.
