Dear Men,

You all need to get back to work. I am very concerned with the amount of time that you spend, during working hours, blogging and emailing. It has been very entertaining, but I am worried about the welfare of your families. Who is monitoring your behavior? Isn't there a higher-up at your jobs that would be a little concerned that you are spending so much time off-task?

I, on the other hand, have successfully completed the following:
  • Scripture study
  • Made breakfast and lunch for every member of my family, and successfully gotten them to and from school (and work)
  • Done 3 loads of laundry
  • Gone to the gym
  • Showered, make-up and done my hair
  • Read 2 chapters in Eclipse

Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed our banter. If possible, I would like to continue it on another day. But right now I have to get that last kid home from school and possibly talk with her teacher. Thanks for the laughs, challenges, and mockery.

For me, unfortunately, work hours get very ambigous. My work/home/personal hours morph into this 24 hour seven day a week thing with no clear distinction.

I do personal stuff at work, I do work stuff at home.

At the end of the day, as long as the work gets done, my "higher ups" are happy. Largely, we are a pretty autonomous group of folks at my job, which is how it should be.

But you are right, the internet can be awfully distracting.

Need to find my limits.

Congrats on getting your stuff done.
