As a FT WAHM, it's essential that I have a workable office space in my home.
Originally, I tried working in the guest bedroom at the desk, and it was just all wrong. I felt too cramped and too "connected" to the house. I was a breath away from Billy's nursery and the master bedroom, and entirely too close to the pantry for unneeded snacks.
One day I got ambitious and moved my office into the hobby room.
I hope I'm not the only mom who does this...but when I lay him on the carpet upstairs in the living room, if I pick him up and he has dog hair on his face, I know it's time to vacuum.
Lately I've just let go of schedules, routines and any form of consistency and just do what it takes to survive. I'm pretty confident I'm not the only working mom who lives that way, if I had to guess. Right?
