Work

I've come to the conclusion that I wouldn't know what to do out in the workforce. My skills at office interrelations, if I ever had them, are now null and void. Though it would be nice to be ahead of the curve on software issues. Without management "seminars" or "webinars," I'm always catching up on any project the uses the unfamiliar. Like Adobe Reader to edit many-layered, dense material. The program quits on me time and time again. Frustrating. Argh.

But getting up early has its perks. By 9 or 10, I've put in 4 or 5 hours, in theory leaving time for all my other activities. So, that's my next hurdle. Practice what I complain about not doing.

My husband has had his office based at home (in a separate building though now, thank heavens) for nearly seven years and I don't think he'd have it any other way now. He works very long days though -- no added free time advantage.

Blog on, we're OVER halfway through!

What do you do for a living? Editing in Adobe is a pain, the formatting drops out. Can't they send information in Word or Excel?

I would never have the discipline to work from home.

its really hard isn't it? I'm resolved to take off more of the time I should have off from work. Making some progress I think...

Could you make yourself stop working at midday, and set yourself lovely knitting (etc) tasks to do in the afternoon?
I find making plans for my time off helps me to actually take it off
