Working From Home

We're getting hit with another winter storm today. It's the second time in less than a week. Not sure how much snow came with the last one, but they say we should get 8-12 inches by the end of the day. I like this storm better because it hit over night and into the early morning, so I didn't have to venture out. Last week, I was already at work and had to drive home in it. Not fun.

So I prepared a little when I left work last night. I brought work home. The only problem is that, with no internet access, I'm limited to what the iPad and my data plan can do. Not necessarily a bad thing. At least my boss knows and understands. Yet she is hellbent on getting me a laptop. See, we had some staff changes. And in a few months, I'll be on maternity leave. But it might be more of a working maternity leave this time. Which could be good and bad. I won't mind working from home if it means I can stay home longer, obviously. But I have a hard time staying focused when I'm home. Like right now, I'm thinking about starting a load of laundry or washing the dishes in the sink. Plus the kids are home today, so I can't neglect them. And there's that sewing project I wanted to start. And since the weather is nasty, The Farmer might come back in after he finishes the chores.

While working from home seems like a good idea, I just don't know if I'm disciplined enough for it. Maybe if I had an office, where I could hide out and shut the door. For now, I have to settle for the kitchen table. It's got a great view, though.
