The Home Office

In my line of work I work out of more than one office. At times the nomadic nature of this sort of employment can be tiresome. There is something to be said for establishing one central base, but then again most of the time I enjoy the changes. It makes it easier to keep things fresh.

One of my offices is a home office. While it can be quite nice to go to work wearing a pair of shorts and a tank top it brings with it a unique set of challenges that I call “The children.”

When the kids are in school it is normally pretty easy. I just bear down and do what I need to do. However on days when they are home it can be really tough. The house isn’t big enough to carve out the space I really want. At this time it is just not possible to work in a separate wing with a closed door.

I have a short term solution that I want to implement. I need a wireless connection so that I can wander through the house as necessary. It won’t fix everything, but it should give me enough space that I can work without constant interruption.

    Earplugs are a must.


    I love it when the neighbors read my email. Some of them could use a little jolt. They need to lighten up. 😉

    Wireless is easy to set up. Just remember to change the default broadcast ID and use WEP for security. Otherwise your neighbors might borrow some bandwidth (or read your email… always fun).

    Wireless would be handy. As would, I’m guessing, earplugs.
