I’m working from home today and man am I enjoying it. In the past, I’ve never had a job with such flexibility. Saturday afternoon our contractor realized, after ripping up our living room carpet, that we need one more day to finish. Since he’s already worked 6 days in a row we told him to take Sunday off and come back on Monday which required one of us to take a day off. Since my husband took all last week off, I volunteered this time because, well, we can’t afford him to take off any more days. My boss is so cool and understanding that she was just like, “sure, that’s fine”.
It’s still surreal for me because I’ve never had a job where there was a work from home option. Most of the time it would require rearranging a whole week’s schedule or trying to find someone to cover but when you work for a small business it’s so completely different. What’s also really neat is my ability to multitask has grown even more. Even though I’m working from my computer, I’m also scrubbing the bathroom down at the same time. Who considers a chore like that a happy day?!
Maybe my mood is pretty great because the sun is shining and it’s supposed to be 70 degrees today but, it’s definitely a great day. I hope you all are having a good Monday whether you’re at work or at home or anywhere in between.
