Hit or Miss- The Working from Home Edition

So due to our lovely blizzard we had this weekend I decided to work from home yesterday. I didn’t have too much work to do and was able to do everything via email. I’m finally back in the office today and I’ve come up with a Hit or Miss list about working from home:

Hit- Being able to wake up at 8:45am instead of 6:45am and still be ready to work by 9am.
Miss- Umm there’s really no downside to this

Hit- Being able to work all day in my slippers, PJ’s and no makeup
Miss- If I worked from home everyday I would never have a reason to wear the cute clothes I have or have an excuse to buy more cute clothes

Hit- Catching up with my good friends- Ellen, Maury, Tyra, Phil and Oprah
Miss- Losing brain cells watching about baby daddy test results and menstruation (yes that was the topic of Tyra’s show yesterday)

Hit- Hanging out with my cats all day
Miss- Not having much human interaction from 9-5 would probably cause me to become the crazy cat lady

Hit- Being able to shower at whatever time I feel like
Miss- I would probably end up showering only every other day and Kristian would dump my greasy, stinky ass…showering is such a process!

Hit- Ability to rummage through the kitchen and eat as much as I want
Miss- Higher grocery bill and gaining about 50 pounds

Hit- Laying on the couch while I answer emails on my laptop
Miss- Contracting a serious case of “couch butt”

So there you have it my friends, my hit or miss list. Overall I’ve determined that it would be great if I could work from home say every Monday and Friday but ultimately it’s not something I could do every day without losing my effin mind.

Feel free to add to the list.

This is such a great hit and miss list...you nailed it about working from home...though I have to admit, I think I would truly love it as I work in an office pretty much by myself all day long every day so I would much prefer to have a tv, fridge and couch to sit on instead of being stuck at a desk for 8 hours a day :)

I love working from home but yeah...its noon and I'm still in my PJs. It's just a different lifestyle hahaha...

I like working from home sometimes, but I don't know if I could do it all the time. I did it for a couple weeks last summer when I broke my ankle and I started to go stir crazy.

I have to agree with most of this... I do work from home almost every day. I am the crazy cat lady, except with my dog. My dozen or so business casual trousers are an attractive condo option for moths, my butt is imprinted in the couch, and I miss social interaction. But... not having to get up at 5am every day to commute two hours round-trip is simply blissful... and makes it all worth it. = )

i love this hit or miss list... and i a love-hate relationship with "working" from home. i don't think i quite have the discipline, hahah.

Ela said...

LOL couch butt is not fun.
I am pretty sure you would not put on 50lbs! Silly.
Merry Christmas, hon!

Cam said...

Yeah...definately love working from home but I don't have the discipline. I actually rented an office space because I couldn't get anything done!!!

Just found your blog and nearly died laughing from this. I would probably weigh 350 lbs if I worked from home. I eat when bored and unless I am locked in my office, I would have serious problems, ha!
