the successful home office


(The view from the land of red clay...)

How to work on a deadline:

1. Have a really nice young man bring a huge tractor to your backyard and use it to remove a concrete patio. Pretend the thunderous booms are the angels bowling.

2. Give your 9-year-old a stash of hemp cord and a pair of needle-nosed pliers and let him make jewelry from tumbled rocks. Hope for the best. Occasionally do a digit inventory.

3. Steer clear of the teenager who has no doubt been awakened prior to her preferred 11 a..m. breakfast time by said patio destruction.

4. Make extra coffee. Consider making Irish coffee instead. Supplement with ibuprofen as needed.
