It’s never the same from day to day. Sometimes I sneak work in snippets here and there between caring for my children during the day. Sometimes I rely on a movie or TV show to keep them occupied if something important comes up. If I am on deadline, well, let’s not go there.
Sometimes I stay up way too late, but I get the work done, somehow. I know soon I will have to get more organized with it all, maybe even designate a specific work area/office/consistent hours, arrange a sitter for some days, or start saying “no” to new jobs more often.
But right now? I’m in bed with my laptop, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on the TV, and a sleeping child right next to me. And nights like these have me appreciating what I do have. It’s not perfect, but it’s a pretty good gig.
Do you work from home? How do you do it?
