I am working from home today. And contrary to popular belief (i.e. Julie’s) this does not mean lounging around in my old holey sweatpants and watching Olympics all day. I actually work.
The pros of working from home are:
o no traffic to contend with which means I get to sleep an hour later.
o no interruptions, so I get much more done
o I can work in my sweatpants and slippers.
o Don’t have to put make up on
o Don’t have to order takeouts for lunch
The bad thing about working from home:
o I can’t stay online all day (dial up costs a fortune in SA because our internet connectivity is powered by ibexes and windmills.)
o This is bad because I can’t check up on my fave blogs and bb’s.
Tips for working from home: (based on personal experience, five minutes ago)
o Be careful when you eat your cheese and tomato sandwich with one hand while working with the other. If you are not careful, your tomato will slide off your sandwich and land on your documents from which you are working. Don’t stress. Pick up the offending piece of tomato and put it back on your sandwich. Carry on eating. You will be left with pieces of tomato on your document with nothing to wipe it up. As no one can see you, just lick the pieces of tomato off your document. Voila! Then be thankful you are working from home and no one saw you lick your documents. Or that you are wearing sheepskin slippers, old sweatpants with the crotch hanging down by your knees and your husband’s T-shirt. Oh and a brown thermal scarf because your neck is cold.
