I’ve just finished my first week of working from home.
Whew. I never dreamed that God would bless me with the chance to work from home. This opens up so many doors for my crew and I. I can be much more involved in my kid’s lives, that is the main thing. No more commute means less gas used. Plus I’m working with words–even if they are technical words–and I love that. This job will open up the opportunity for me to write procedural manuals and technical manuals for the company that hired me, Dynamic Systems, Inc. There may be opportunity for travel as well. But most of all, it will meet our financial needs if they bring me on full-time. If God grants that, well, I don’t deserve it. It’s almost too good to be true.’
Working from home has it’s challenges. It is difficult to keep straight working hours and not be distracted by other things that need to get accomplished, like laundry. I’m trying to stick to an 8-5 schedule for right now. That gives me two hours in the morning to exercise, study and pray and read, shower and get ready for the day. But I love the flexibility of it. For example, yesterday I started early and finished my day really late so that I could take my crew to see Spiderman, which, by the way, was amazing.
Staring at the screen all day is a challenge on my eyesight. No, I am not growing old, it is just that my eyes have trouble focusing due to fatigue–It’s got to be fatigue, it certainly is NOT age. Sitting all day is a challenge as well, which is why my morning exercise routine is vitally important. I’m also considering getting a Stand Up Desk to work from. I think I would be more productive if I had one.
God has been merciful to me and my family. For that I am truly grateful. He has met our needs, sometimes at the very last moment, sometimes before we even knew we had a need. I think that having to rely on Him totally has helped to chase away the doubts that I sometimes struggle with. I can imagine where my crew and I would be with out God, and it is a horrifying picture. God is merciful and kind, He is an everlasting Father.
