Working From Home

Posted on: December 9, 2010

The past two weeks have been one medical problem after another for me.  The weekend after Thanksgiving I had roofies put in my drink at a bar.  For the next few days I did nothing but throw up and try to sleep.  As a result of this, I then developed a kidney infection causing me to be very feverish and have bad back and abdominal pain.  Needless to say, I did not leave my apartment during this time so I worked from home in my comfy pajama pants while drinking lots of tea.

Although most of the time I spend in my office is spent doing work on my computer, doing work on my computer while sitting on my couch is just not quite the same.  Working from home is difficult because there is so much to distract you and you don’t have to be as professional.  (I was free to answer my cell phone, have the tv on, take a nap, etc.)

After a few days of this I realized I needed a productivity plan to make this work so I wasn’t really behind at work.  I turned my dinning room into my make-shift office and made myself work in 2 hour shifts until I got all my work done.

I always thought a job where I could work from home would be great, but now know that it’s actually really hard!
