Ok, so I started this blogging challenge and have every intention of getting in 30+ posts in October. What I didn’t count on is the pain flare from hell. I’ve been barely moving for two days now. Sitting hurts, lying hurts, standing is near impossible. It’s typical for me to hurt a little more a few days each month, but come on! Times like this I’m really glad I have the flex schedule I’ve always wanted.
I work every day, but not a typical 8 hour workday. I put in 25-40 hours a week depending on what I’m working on, and most days I keep my workload down to 4-6 hours. When pain kicks in, I cut back. I am no good to anyone when the pain fog meets pain meds fog. I’m not sure how this will work outside of home or with a typical schedule. Thankfully, right now, I don’t have to find out.
On sick days, I work a little via cell. Have I mentioned lately how much I love technology? And automation software rules! I can schedule posts while lucid and not worry about it. Not worry much, anyway. I can check email and social media from bed. My next purchase may be Dragon Naturally Speaking so I can get more done.
As for housework, that’s what kids are for. 🙂 And my pain + med fog makes me more entertaining. At least I think so.
And now that i’m feeling a little better, it’s time to make up for lost time. I have a feeling that my to do list will make me consider going back to bed.
So, telecommuters. how do you handle your sick days?
