The Lure of Silence…

The house is finally quiet. The kids are either off at school or day care and the husband is at work. After a week with an unfriendly visit with the rampaging flu, it’s a blissful sound. I have my cup of tea and it’s far too tempting to curl up with a book and a warm blanket and enjoy the peace. That’s the problem with working from home, or at least one of them. I find I haven’t overcome the temptation to procrastinate. I do fine on a deadline. I can get three kids fed, watered and entertained, stay up ’til three a.m. if I need to, and get an assignment finished on time and on budget. It’s that pull of a silent house when I need to be getting some research done or doing some administrative work or marketing myself that is hard to overcome. I would guess it’s a problem for most work-at-home moms. We lead such busy lives, the quiet time we do get it precious. So, now I guess I’ll take a sip of that tea, sign off this blog, and pretend the house is not quite so quiet.
