Sunday night musings

Things over here went from crazy to crazier before calming down this week.  Last week I was in New York for orientation for a new job (woot woot!) and it was so much fun to be there for so much time, but it was also incredibly busy and overwhelming at times. Being away from home and my babies for a whole week was tough, and I am so happy to be back home in beautiful LA.

I also really missed having home-cooked food; eating out for every meal for a full week gets really old.  I couldn’t wait to come home to be able to have something as simple as oatmeal for breakfast!  I did end up finding a Whole Foods close to my hotel and bought a cold-pressed juice for breakfast every morning, but it just wasn’t the same.

Now that I am back home, I’m really ready to jump into my new routine.  I will be working from home, so I’m trying to figure out all the details about how to make that work.  I am super excited about it, and the opportunity to have the cuddliest co-workers ever!  Anyone have any tips on how to work from home?

I would love to hear suggestions about things to try out and things to avoid.  I already know I will have to make a concerted effort to get out of the house.  I’m also going to be sure to ‘get dressed’ every morning, even if that means comfy clothes and no contacts. I think just making sure I’m not wearing pajamas all day will have a big difference in my mental state.  Anyway, I start tomorrow!  So I’ll muddle through it and figure things out. I have visions of being able to cook a proper lunch, which will probably never happen…but it’s still nice to know I could 🙂

Here’s to a great week and a new start!

  1. Congrats on the new job, Vaish! How exciting! We’re headed to NYC right now, so it sounds like we just missed you.

    I’d say you’re off to a good start with your plans for working from home with the getting dressed every day plan. I also recommend heading out to a coffee shop or library or other nifty out-of-home place to work for either half of every work day or a full day every other day. Otherwise you’ll be guaranteed to get cabin fever. And you should 100% be sure to take a lunch break every day, whether that means cooking or taking the dogs for a walk or whatever, just make sure you unplug from work during it!

    Looking forward to your updates on working from home! Keep up the awesome work on the blog. 🙂
