Work and Life

June 27th, 2008 at 05:50 pm

This is my first day of working at home. I got up and dressed for my work day to start at 7:00 am. I ended up with a lot of work accomplished for the day. What a pleasure! I did not realize how much people interrupted my workday routine in the office. I even forgot to take my lunch break at 11:30. I guess I need to put an alarm to force myself to take a break in order that I do not burn myself out. I do need to go to the main office today at to pick up my work cell phone and internet router. This means a gas expense). Frown !

I will connect my driving to work with a grocery shopping trip. I am proud to say that we only spent $269 for groceries for the month of June!! Watching the sales, using coupons and cutting out the processed foods really helped. I hope to maintain my $400 food budget for July.

I finally broke down and turned on the a/c due to the heat wave. Our a/c thermostat is maintained at 78 degrees with ceiling fans on and blinds/curtains closed. The electric bill was $90 pretty reasonable for this month compared to my neighbors $250 bill. She finally asked us how we got our bill so low. We were glad to share our secrets.

My break is over and I need to drive to the office before the crazy rush hour traffic starts!

    I used to work in the emergency room from 11PM to 7AM (better known as the graveyard shift). I could accomplish so much because there weren't as many distractions to deal with. If I worked on the other shifts, I never accomplished what I wanted to. For some people, working alone is better. Some people need the interraction with others. BUT - when I'm working I don't want to be bothered.

    $269 for 4 peoples' groceries is excellent. Compare that to my monthly averages YTD in my post today. Yikes.
