yippee I got a job

Did I get a job?  Well I have work in any case, on a contract basis, working for the same friend and fellow CPA in Millbrae, a small city right next to the San Francisco International Airport and just a few minutes from downtown San Francisco.  I worked for him during the busy season, which technically ended three weeks ago.  I was looking forward to marathons of napping, watching TV, smoking cigars and seeking the outer bounds of worthlessness.  Alas, it is not to be.

The long and the short of it, my friend really liked my work.  He says he can keep me busy all summer.  The best part is that I can work from home every other week, working remotely by accessing his network via the internet.  I like that.  I can sit outside in the backyard, smoke cigars, drink coffee, and work.  We'll see how that works.  When you are at home, even though working, wifey thinks you are available for errands, and the bed upstairs whispers, "naaa--aaa-aaap!   naaaaaaaaaap!"

This might be harder than I think.  What the heck, I'll give it a shot.

Whoooooooooohoooooooo! Good for you.

And working from home can be hard. Hubby has been doing it for 35 years and tends to over-work. He doesn't set limits and just keeps working and working.

I, on the other hand, because of the ADD tend to flounder a lot.

You'll be fine. Just set a schedule and stick to it. Don't forget to pencil in "nap." It's okay...

Adrienne, I'd like to be more like your hubby as far as work goes! It takes self-discipline to work at home.

Adrienne said...

Stogie - hubby fits the classic example of workaholic. I have yet to convince him that beyond a certain point your productivity takes a nose dive. He does, however, find time for naps.

Stogie said...

Adrienne, couldn't agree more about the productivity nose dive. I can work productively for maybe 9 hours a day, but after that, my productivity suffers badly. You have to rest, take some days off, take vacations, or you lose your edge.

Great news, Stogie!

I'm very happy for you.
