I feel like one of those people in those commercials where people are sitting at their kitchen tables, usually with one leg propped up, in sweatpants, holding an over-sized cup of coffee, with both hands, while they "work" and smile like they have a secret that the people on the other end of their web cam can't see. I'm not participating in any electronic meetings today, but I am WORKING FROM HOME. (Echo, echo, echo)

I also don't have sweatpants on either. In fact, I should be working instead of writing this post.

Motivation. That's how WORKING FROM HOME finds its way. Here I am sitting at my kitchen table amongst a plethora of household chores that yearn to be done, but I'm being responsible (aside from taking time to write this) and choosing not to clean the things that need cleaning.  I'm also not watching TV. The TV's not even on, which it usual is if I'm home. Like I said, I'm actually WORKING FROM HOME.

So, like I was saying, it's important to stay motivated when you're trusted with WORKING FROM HOME. Maybe I should put some sweatpants on. It's not like I'm going anywhere. Maybe I should make a giant cup of coffee, too. One so heavy I need to use both hands to lift it to my thirsty lips. And later, if I'm up for it, I might prop my leg up and nod approvingly at my WORK.
