53.3 Great and Wonderful Things About Working At Home

I’m feeling very uninspired this week.  While there are several inspirational fragments floating around in my brain, I am unable to coax any of them out and make a blog out of them yet.  But there is always something to talk about, and while I’m sitting here at my desk, I thought I’d just share my list of 53.3 Great and Wonderful Things About Working At Home.  Don’t panic.  I have ADHD.  There really won’t be 53.3 items on my list.

  1. Overslept? Late for work? What does that mean?  Absolutely nothing.
  2. No clean clothes? Not a problem.  I wasn’t planning on getting out of my pajamas today anyway.
  3. My plan for burning less gas on my commute to the office is to cut back on the chili dogs the night before.
  4. Traffic problems consist of both cats AND the dog walking in front of me in the hallway.
  5. Parking problems? Nuh-uh. Well, sometimes one of the cats is asleep in my chair.
  6. You know those times when you have to look busy when the boss comes around?  I don’t have to do that.
  7. No one disturbs my lunchtime nap (except maybe the dog).
  8. There are no team building exercises.  (There is no “team” in “I work at home”.)
  9. There are no safety meetings.
  10. Executive Retreats are held in a beach chair at the Outer Banks.
  11. The only time I have to worry about “downsizing” is when both cats are sitting in on my desk in front of both monitors.
  12. Casual Friday? Working on the laptop or iPad while sitting on my recliner while watching reruns of The Walking Dead?
  13. Flextime? Yeah.  Got that.
  14. Surfing the internet actually IS part of my job.
  15. It’s 12:17.  It’s time for lunch…or a trip to Target…or maybe Trader Joe’s.

No, really, it’s 12:17 and it’s time for lunch… or a trip to Target…or maybe Trader Joe’s.
