Does anyone regret not arising in the wee hours of the morning to complete their workout?
I too had a plethora of meetings, and files spread all about my desk. Why is it that this year I have multiple students with the same first name, or one's with similar last names. I swear, I am going a little cray-cray!
Overall, I am looking forward to when the new school year settles down a bit. And Mr. Prince is not really obliging my work-day schedule. I think he got a little too comfortable with all the attention he was receiving during our summer break - poor guy! Today I felt like a human mother bribing him with numerous treats to settle down while I was in back-to-back meetings.
But in the end, I would not trade my situation for anything. Here are my top 5 reasons for enjoying my work-from-home gig!
4. Increased H20 Consumption with Facilities Close By. Ok, I am sure you are thinking I have lost it... Well, you are somewhat correct, lol. I have dealt with this issue for years, and the doctors simply say that I have a smaller bladder, and there is really nothing to worry about. Now its not like really, really bad; but, enough that it is severely compacted by the surplus of water that I drink on a daily basis. I aim to drink 1 gallon of water a day, and on a bad day, drink about 1/2 gallon. This means that I frequent the ladies room habitually, and I am blessed to have my office in a nook in our master bedroom. I just simply walk across the room to use the facilities. Yes, it is pretty convenient.
2. Prince. I know, he is too precious and fills by day with joy on most occasions. Lately, he has been a little more annoying than typical, but that is mainly because he is not enjoying my workday schedule, which means less attention for him. He too is not enjoying the wood floors. In our previous house, we had carpet in our bedroom suite which also housed by office area. Our current residence is 100% wood floors. Prince does have a doggy bed which he only uses to "store" his toys and goodies. People, I can't make these things up! He too is such a hoarder, lol.
He has discovered a new-found love for laying on my work chair whilst I work. Well, he is no toy-sized dog so it can be quite interesting. He too has been demanding to lay in my lap while I work. Both have made typing and holding meetings rather difficult, but we somehow manage.
1. Eating Healthy. Working from home prevents me from being tempted by high-calorie goodies that are so common in many workplaces. Now, I also have to be planful about my daily diet. I tend to not take a lunch break, so I have too often found myself at 3pm starving from not eating a snack or even lunch. But in the end, I am able to eat a healthy diet on a daily basis, and it is often very fresh since I have the entire kitchen at my disposal.
