Okay, I'm just complaining to ease my own frustratins. Working from home is no picnic. It's almost impossible to keep my 2 year old from ruining everything I start. Today, she put holes in the fleece inside an AIO (got ahold of a seam ripper in the 2 minutes I stepped out of the room to get the phone). The mama was VERY undsertanding about it, but I still feel awful. My serging is shot today.. everything seems uneven. Probably not to a customer, but just to my eye. Thread jams, I can't find my embroidery scissors, the cat got locked in the computer room overnight and pooped on the floor, and I can't seem to get anything accomplished! Ever have days like this? I just feel like if I weren't at home with dishes and a dirty diaper and a skinned knee and lunch to prepare.. things would be so much easier. Thanks for listening.. it's just been one of those days where everythign falls apart. I guess I should justt sit back and relax, but, contrary to popular belief.. that's not an option when you work from home and have ten MILLLION things to do at the same time.<br><br>

I think we've ALL had days like that! It will probably get better, and worse, and better, etc.<br><br>
Try to find something for your little one to do to "Help" you. Make a huge meal to last for several meals, and forget about cleaning the house until tonight when your baby is asleep!<br><br>
Remember that working from home with children means that you are doing 2 full time jobs! Give yourself a break.<br><br>
Take Care,<br>

When I have a mound of things going wrong, usually after the first 3 I stop take a deep breathe and put it all away. I feel that if 3 things are going wrong then most likely my entire day is going to go like that and continuing is just going to cause more work. Now if you can't afford to take the whole day, take an hour or 2 to unwind.
