TGIF (and other things I'm thankful for)
Every once in a while I think how nice working from home could be. Then I have to do it. When I was single, I would pack up my laptop and head out of the office when I needed to really get some things done. Whether I went home or to a park, I was productive and focused. And maybe those days are what I still envision when I set out to work from home.
But things are different now. Especially when working from home means I was up at 2 a.m. for the fever that ultimately set the course for our day. Working from home also means walking through a sea of toys to get to the coffeemaker for cup #3. It means the laundry and dinner are silently calling for me. Not to mention the 30 inch little sick boy who is actually calling for me. It also means working to plunky little classical tunes in the background. And no, I don't feel guilty that I was thanking Julie Clark by 11 a.m. for her breadth of Baby (insert genius here) videos.
So, here's my short list of things to be thanful for today:
1. Infant Motrin (or this would have been a much bitchier post)
2. Wireless networks (because the couch is so much nicer than the office)
3. Baby Einstein (see #1 above)
4. Caffeine (because the molars are coming in so nobody's sleeping at our house)
5. My Fix, Freeze & Feast book (because even though I was home all day, it's 5:45 and I am just now thinking about dinner)
