Today was a work-from-home day due to the snow and nasty driving conditions….
(I love the weird randomness of that pattern.)
I have mixed feelings about these types of work days. On the one hand, I don’t have to put on make-up or do anything with my hair. I can wear comfie clothes (aka pajamas) all day. Heck, I don’t even have to shower. That’s not to say that I didn’t shower…or did I?
(Yes that’s a blanket on my lap, wrapped around my waist. Our basement is cold and I need the extra warmth. Plus it’s really sexy.)
But on the other hand, I find it hard to concentrate. My mind wanders in a million directions thinking of all that I could be doing. I hear the delightful laughter wafting down from upstairs of my little squirt playing and it makes me homesick. It really sucks to be homesick when you’re already at home. Think about it.
Anyway, CJ had to run out and pick up his dad from the mechanics this morning because my FIL decided today, the coldest one of the year and with the most dangerous driving conditions, was in fact the perfect day to take the car in to be fixed. I guess it was a good thing I was home because otherwise Ceige would have had to take Munchkin with him and it was way too cold and icky for her to be out there. The point is that most of my morning was spent watching Isabella and not working. I tried to bring her to the basement to play while I worked but it’s hard to really get much done when she wants to show me everything and have me interact with her. But I shall not complain too much because I’ll take extra play time with my angel any day!
Once CJ got back I intended to be Super Woman and make all kinds of progress. However, these new projects I’m on are somewhat overwhelming to me and I really didn’t know where to start. I’ve been doing this job for almost 10 years and yet you would think I was brand new. I made a few attempts to move forward, a few stutter steps and then gave up and went upstairs for lunch.
Food fixes everything, right? Well, food and Cake Boss.
When I came back down I decided to reach out for help and called one of the gals I work with. This is not easy for me. I’m not one that likes to admit weakness or the need for help. But, she is someone who has reached out to me before and has a way of explaining things so that they make sense. I knew she’d understand. She did and her insight was just what I needed. Now I feel ready to start over and dig in.
Isn’t it great when you can find just the right resource?
Now it’s time to call it a wrap and head upstairs for more family time. Tomorrow is a new day and I feel ready to take it on!
