I have completely taken over my couch and coffee table. It’s my new favorite work space.
The scenario: My Dell Vostro on my lap, feet on the coffee table,a glass of iced mineral water nearby, the iPod hooked up and pumping LCD Soundsystem through my earbuds. Awww, yeah. This is what I call working!
Yes, it’s true I have a wonderful, dedicated desk and computer in my office, with three monitors — one of which is wide-screen. I like it too, but I’ve found that I’ve fallen in love with my laptop. It’s small, portable and it makes it easier to pay attention to Madeline, rather than holed up in my office. I also kind of FEEL like I’m working offsite — even though I’m not.
I think I’ve finally found that tenuous place between caring for a baby and taking care of clients. Madeline has many times throughout the day when she’s content to play in her bounce seat or nearby on a play-mat. As long as I’m in view she’s cool.
Still, I put in most of my web hours after she’s gone to bed.
I haven’t slept much lately.
