For lack of a better term, I'll call it homing. Obviously staying home has its perks, but work does too. Or at least, those of us who receive paychecks for our work have perks. Me? I have to find satisfaction in the job alone. And some days that's difficult. I'm sure that if you look at your job - whatever it is - there are days when, for want of a paycheck, you'd leave. And for me, that's what my job is like. Finding the satisfaction in what's been done, accomplished, and finished.
Today? Today was a good day. A fantastic day! Nope, not everything went right. Yes, I did get a bit of a wake up call when I got a quote from Business A for 4x the amount Business B did. Ouch, and I thought Business B was expensive. Wow! But I accomplished something today.
Somedays I come home from work and think, "Seriously, did I accomplish a single thing today?" Those are the days I spend (literally) hours searching for a photo that "I saw once..." because it's absolutely necessary for the piece I'm doing. Grrr.
But today was good. And then I came home and realized that Matt had cleaned the lounge - and it became obvious how bad it had gotten. That's the difficultly I have with cleaning, parenting, toilet-training, working from home, working out of the home, and volunteering at church. Balance. I know it's possible. I know it probably requires that I don't sit down and blog during the day. But I need my sanity, thank you very much.
Thank you for sanitizing me. Ahahahaa. Ok. I thought it was funny.
Does anyone else do the SAHM, WAHM, WAWM thing? And sometimes, I throw in WAWWC (Work at work with child). Those days are bad though. Bad bad. Haha. 2 year in a office? Think about it. It doesn't go well.
