Working from home

There are so many benefits to being able to work from home the bulk of my work hours.

Hours can be flexible.

I can be at home and focus on Hannah.

I don't have to deal with any commute or parking frustrations 4/5 days of the week!


That said I still feel like I have a lot to learn in this area.

This week our staff team is doing a lot of meetings full of review/evaluation and strategic planning. Today and tomorrow is at our house.

Awesome because it is at our house so I get to be there some of the time and Hannah can nap in her own bed.

Difficult because its tough to balance paying attention to a little one, being involved in a meeting and not distracting others from the task at hand. Not to mention trying to prepare the staff meal that was to be ready by the time meetings ended today (although that was only for today, tomorrow no dinner to prepare!)

Thankfully, we have a gracious staff team who love Hannah.

Thankfully, we have a little girl that LOVES people and totally enjoys acting it up when people are at our house. I'm sure tonight she will be dreaming of what crazy things she can do tomorrow to get laughs and attention.

If anyone has advice on finding that balance of being involved in work or serious stuff (like a Bible study) but also paying attention to your little one without letting them distract others too much I'd love to hear it!
