Working (from Home)

At work we have an inspection coming up on Friday. Nothing like a deadline to light a fire under your butt and get you moving. I'm going to be putting in some extra hours this week in preparation for it.

As a stay-at-home mom, deadlines and other work issues aren't quite the same...

  • Rushing to finish a project happens when you hear the baby waking up from the nap and you aren't quite finished with whatever you planned to do during nap time.
  • You hear your "boss" having problems with a "project" and you race into the bathroom to clean up the mess before it gets worse.
  • Getting to an important appointment on time is a great day. Getting there a few minutes late is par for the course and getting there early is virtually unheard of.
  • When your "boss" makes you redo something it usually was done correctly the first time such as the laundry, the carpets...you get the idea.
  • Dressing for success equals clean clothes that are preferably stain-free.
  • Your boss calling you at home in the middle of the night is typical.
  • It is pretty easy to leave your work worries at work since you rarely leave work anyway.
