Yesterday my car was in the shop, so I worked from home. I do not know how people do this! It was awful for me. We took the girls to daycare so I could actually work (trying to work from home on snow day = don't even try!). All day, I felt like I was on speed, and not just because of the 3 cups of coffee I drank! I would read, think about the laundry, take notes, look at the Christmas tree I need to take down, answer e-mails, program the new DVR remote, etc. I could not focus!!! It was ridiculous!
I know if I had to work from home, I could. I would need to create an actual work space, as opposed to the kitchen table, and have set times and such. But, this random working from home is tough on me. I feel like I do not get anything done - at home or at "work"! Bleh! Then, I came home cranky because all the things I noticed and thought about all day, but did not do because I was working, were staring me in the face. And, unfortunately, I took out my stress on my husband and kids. Though, in my defense, the toddler skipped nap, and that seriously makes for a rough evening!
