I think everyone knows that I love working from home.
Today I’m in Yoga Pants, a sweatshirt and uggs. My hair is in a pony and I’m about to go grab random things out of the fridge for lunch.
Tomorrow will probably look the same.
“Someone” recently spent a few mandated days at home and sent me an email or a FB or a somethign that was like OMG HOW DO YOU STAND IT – I HATE DAYTIME TV…
I was SHOCKED. SHOCKED. I love daytime TV.
Here’s how I figure it – if I were in a traditional office, I would have “office friends” people that would stop by to say hi, we’d walk to coffee, talk about random topics -it’d be great.
But – since I work from home, the TV is my office friends. It’s on during the day, and serves as my background noise. I’ve tried to work for hours when it’s off – but I just can’t. I need the background noise and the something to glance at on occasion. So my reply to that someone was – clealry she was watchign all the WRONG things!
So – before I rattle off my list – here’s what I’d like to say… I don’t WATCH tv all day. The TV is on – it’s way over there, and I occasionally glance at it, but reality is – its just background noise. So here’s the order of the things that I have on…
7 – 9: Good Morning America
9 – 10: BH 90210 or whatever is on Soap Net or Regis and Kelly or Rachel Ray – depends on the day
10 – 11: The View or… Soap Net, same with 11 – 12
12 – 3pm: ABC Daytime: AMC, OLTL, GH
3 – 4pm: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
4pm – on: Random things – depends on the day.
So – yes, its alot of TV. But often, I will DVR the shows that I have on during the work day so that I can watch them and pay attention, I dont retail alot of whats on during the day. I also don’t watch anything that makes my brain work – like the news, or cnn, or whatever.
Other favorites: Gilmore Girls, OTH, The OC, 7th Heaven, ANTM, hmmm… anythign thats a rerun, I’m up for – MASH is another favorite –
So thats how I do it… some people work with the radio on… I liek the visual distraction occasionally!
