T.V. work

April 25, 2008

Journal, Lauren

I love ‘work’ that can be done in front of the t.v. – folding laundry, paying bills (dnag, I forgot to pay some bills), and this kind of thing. Our center is going through accreditation and I’m getting the file folders ready to hold all our stuff. The problem is that I’ve been pretty tired lately, so I’m drinking coffee to stay awake. All that caffeine does not lend itself well to cutting straight lines (not to mention my eyeballs jumping around). Oh well, at least I got to watch television.

Trusty old trunk - my favorite work surface.

    I also enjoy work in front of the TV: eating, shifting positions, and the nightly freezing-of-the-wart. Oh, and sometimes I look through a catalog during commercials.

    TV time is the perfect time to get such important things done.


  2. Beth Said on:

    My most productive times are during TV commercials. I get up and race around getting a few things done in those precious 2 1/2 minutes before my show returns…


  3. Lauren's dad Said on:

    I watch very little TV. This way I don’t have to do anything during commercials.

    As a fellow fan of commercial cleaning, I wonder how come I’m frozen in place by an infomercial? That’s a half-hour commercial, for cryin’ out loud!


    • Deanne Said on:

      An infomercial is really a show about a product. Plus, who wants to do chores for a whole half-hour??!


  5. Peggy Said on:

    Wait just a cotton pickin’ minute … isn’t watching TV considered work, in and of itself?


  6. Annette Said on:

    Who’s going to clean up that mess, I mean, workspace?


  7. Kathi D Said on:

    I do all kinds of chores in front of the TV, too, and all I can say is thank goodness for DVRs because if I am actually trying to WATCH something, I have to rewind about 20 times because I keep forgetting to pay attention.

    TV? You mean TV’s have another purpose other then showing briefs and Safety lectures? I think I would like to trade you workspaces mine for some reason wont hold still for a min. This endless rocking has to stop!!!!
