What it's really like to work at home - OM [one moment] meet up #23

I'm so grateful to have been able to work from home but must admit it is not without many challenges.  This video is a funny, but all too real depiction of the working from home experience. 

I spent much of my week on the couch with my laptop and iPhone feeling awful from a head cold.  I remembered many years of going into work sick.  I hated doing it but the reality was that unless I was bleeding from my ears, my boss expected me to be in the office producing.  I used to keep hand sanitizer on my desk to let people know I was making an effort to not spread germs.  My moment this week came when I had a coughing jag (the kind that makes your eyes water to the point that people think you're dying and offer to call an ambulance) and was so glad it wasn't in a boardroom in the middle of a big planning meeting that I was leading.

Thanks, Angie (a.k.a. @modernpaper and Jumping Jack Designs) for retweeting this video.

om [one moment] meet upOM is a weekly meet up that promotes living in the moment.  Whether funny, sad, ridiculous, or banal, looking for these moments can promote balance in our lives.

Share in the blog comments here, on your own blog (and link back below)  or on my Facebook fan  page. If you are on Twitter,  I've started a hash tag - #omMeetup so  that we can converse if we'd like. We'd love to hear your moment this week!
