and almost another month…

…since I last posted here. Things are busy, but not busy enough, I could really use some more or better paying work. At least I can round up enough to cover daycare and most of mortgage, the remainder I am currently covering with my savings which will run out eventually.

This work at home thing is tough, it requires a lot of discipline. I have to frequently stop myself from doing the laundry or dishes, or checking my facebook or email accounts. I have a hard time not doing things that I know need to be done.

And it doesn’t help that my husband knows I am home so he calls and asks me to run errands for him. He forgot his wallet the one day, so I wasted an hour driving out and giving it to him, another day he decided he was treating his office to homemade pizzas (which I had to make)…I assumed he would cook them the night before and bring them in the next morning…no…I was home, so  couldn’t I just cook them in the morning and bring them up? Four pizzas which take an hour to cook each. I can fit two in the oven..so two hours to cook his pizzas and at least 15 minutes to cool after the last one was done so I could handle it out to my car. Then a one hour commute to get there and back, not to mention the social time I have to spend at his office so I wasted over three hours.

Everytime I think he might be starting to understand that this is a job, he blows it.

  1. I hear ya! I’ve worked from home off and on for decades. The hardest part was training my husband and kids that even though I was in the house, I was working. Sometimes you just have to let the phone ring and let those personal emails go unanswered until lunchtime. I found I had to keep a fairly strict schedule for myself, allowing a couple of “coffee breaks” and a lunch hour. It was during those times that I threw a load of clothes in the washer or returned calls.
