I used to think working from home would give me so much more time to sleep – I mean, you’re home! You don’t even need to put PJs on if you don’t want to, much less do your hair, put on makeup and commute to work. No brainer, right?
Well, maybe right. But only if you’re not a big dumb-dumb and schedule an 8am doctor’s appointment 45 minutes away from your nice, warm, cozy bed. I, of course, *am* a big dumb-dumb, and so that’s what I did today. I got all psyched up about working from home, only to realize I actually needed to wake up earlier than usual. Bummer.
On the plus side, I was able to work in PJs, from bed the rest of the day (once I realized I didn’t need to sit at the table all proper-like), and I was able to run to the Giant Eagle Pharmacy on my “lunch break.” Also, since I don’t have any real “work” to do at work yet, I spent the day half-heartedly listening to online training sessions. In bed. In jammies. Nice and cozy. And finally, I don’t have to wait around after work for 3 hours for volleyball, and I don’t have to wait forever to catch the bus at the sketchy stop in the freezing cold – because I’ll be driving to the game. That’s a win, no matter what happens in our actual game.
So yeah, working from home can be really great, but only if you’re smart about it and plan your day accordingly. Like, with plenty of snoozing. Ah well. Next time.
