why I could never work from home

This summer was supposed to be dedicated to getting prepared for my school year. I was so completely and laughably unprepared when I started in January last year, I wanted to be way more on top of things. Today pretty much was a usual day for me.

I woke up early to lesson plan and GET SHIZ DONE! So I woke up when Mark left for work at 6:30. Well, I woke up to kiss him goodbye. Then I laid in bed till 8:45. 

Then I got up and was starving, so I decided to make a smoothie. I opened the fridge to get my smoothie stuff out and I saw the pepperjack cheese we just bought and "EGG SANDWICH" popped into my head. So I spent the next hour crafting the most beautiful and delicious egg sandwich.

As I was eating I decided to entertain myself by turning on Gilmore Girls, just for a second. Ended up watching two episodes. 

Then I decided it was time to get to lesson planning! So I cleaned up my breakfast plate..well, I tried but the dishwasher had clean dishes in it so I had to unload and then reload. Then I wiped down the counters and decided to sweep and mop the kitchen floor. But then you can't have a clean kitchen floor and not have clean carpets, so I vacuumed. Which led me to making my bed and putting laundry away since I was in the bedroom vacuuming.

So then since I was sweaty from cleaning I decided I would go to the gym. On the way home from the gym I stopped at Walmart to pick up a few things...

I came home and showered. I got out of the shower and realized my skin needed extra love, so I  gave myself a facial. 

Once I was done with that, I finally got dressed. It took me a while to choose clothes that were comfy enough that I could work for hours on end. Once I was done choosing I had clothes everywhere, so I had to put those away. That led me to realize that Mark's work clothes for tomorrow needed to be washed, so I had to do a little laundry. 

Once that was done I went into my office to get really serious. I sat down and checked my email after browsing the social networks and noticed Old Navy was having a big sale! So obviously, I perused. Then I realized that it was almost 3:00 and no planning has been done and Mark would be home very soon. So I thought about my day and how much lesson planning I hadn't done and I thought, "Man, I could get a few things done in the half hour before Mark gets home. Better get to making up the day that I lost!"

and then I typed in and here I am, writing this blog post. Mark will be home in five minutes. Better luck tomorrow, I guess.

  1. Ha ha! This reads kind of like the "if you give a pig a pancake" book... You're awesome for even thinking about planning! I never got started until august! :/

  2. hahahah this is the best. honestly you got a lot more done than I would have if I were in your position. I would have stopped at the gilmore girls part and just let that go on all day...

  3. Holy crap, but you like, cleaned your whole house! I'm inspired to mop now.... But I feel you. I cannot nor ever will work from home. (I guess editing photos form the few photo shoots I get here and there can count as working from home, but not really.)
