One of the things I love about my job is that it can be remote, and I can work from home regularly, so the switch to COVID-19 working from home didn’t feel like a huge change. The biggest challenge is that usually I have a very quiet house for 6 of the 8 hours while my kids are at school, and my recovering husband mostly sleeps. During COVID, the house is full, and there is very little quiet time, so I am working in all the available spaces, like when my son is busy yelling at his friends on Fortnite and my daughter is practicing elaborate makeup routines that I, as a 37 year old woman, can’t even imagine mastering.
This morning, with my cup of coffee, generously furnished by my family, my desktop on the kitchen table (back pain has me working my way back to my desk) and at least an hour of solitude, (minus shouts of “look out for that sniper!! Why didn’t you rumble? There’s a Peely over there!!” And peals of laughter from my so to room) to get some of my work done. The best part about it? I literally love my job, so it doesn’t feel like work. It feels like something that I look forward to, and am lucky enough to do.
So happy Sunday. Try to find a way to make it happy, whatever your happy looks like.
