Sleepy Wednesday April 17th (aka Last Time I'll Bring This Up - I SWEAR!)

Morning!

25 years ago today I went to the best concert I've ever seen

Yesterday while I was waiting for the ASSIL to get out of his appt downtown, I read an article in XBIZ by Juicy Jay about distractions while working & how much time they eat up. He talked about Deep Work, which I call being in "the zone", where your focused & concentrating on work & actually accomplishing something, but when you get distracted, it usually takes about 20 minutes to get back into "the zone". The board has always been a distraction* and Social Media has been for 10 or so years. I doubt either of those 2 would go away if I worked in an office. But working at home...The Bitch, my mom, the dogs, the ASSIL - all major distractions. Based on the 20 minute thing, I'd bet my mom costs me 2-3 hours of work/day. It's no wonder I never get anything done!
*Technically work, but I do fuck off on here a lot

Speaking of working from home, The Bitch's boss told her yesterday afternoon that they want her to work from home again today It's one thing if I know in advance that she'll need my office, but I have to work today. We just spent about an hour setting her up in the spareroom

ASSIL run & the grocery store is having a Buy 2 Get 4 sale on Diet Mountain Dew, so time to stock up...maybe there's a sale on Michelob Ultra, too Other than that...

Good Morning

Nothing going on here other than dealing with issues from the crash and doing biz work with some tv watching thrown in.

Enjoy your Wednesday!

... That's what you said last time!

Morning.

Back from the gym and now at my desk for most of the afternoon. It's sunny and warm enough that I turned off the furnace. It will be turned on again tonight when it gets dark. No Leafs for me tonight as I am going to a play downtown. Oh well, I was just a bandwagoner anyhow.

Have a great day!

I do believe it on the disruptions. You would think after 7 years of being away from punching a time clock I would have learned about minimizing the distractions, but nope. I bet I lose a good 2 hours daily to the cat walking in circles around my desktop, including on my keyboard. She usually wants attention or treats. The Husband? Add another easy 2 hours there. The two of them pick the absolute worst times to intrude. They aren't vindictive about it - they have no idea that I am busy working on something.

The social media thing is an absolute distraction. I now completely log out of it for hours at a time. The Husband has access to almost everything I do, so I put him to work.

We will have more than enough distractions here the next 2 days. The Husband has to take his car to be checked because it made a strange noise a week ago (and hasn't done it since!) So of course, his parents have to come over and go with him just in case he needs anything. Tomorrow also means cleaning and running errands. Good Friday, we are having the parents over for dinner. Many places still close here for the holiday, which is neat.
