Identifying Obstacles

Identifying obstacles early in working at home is important. Working with an energetic three year old running around is challenging, but not impossible. Luckily, I've noticed a little pattern. After breakfast the kiddo will watch a bit of TV and play with her dolls. There's an hour usually uninterrupted. Then another hour or two for naptime in the afternoon. After that, it seems like everything falls apart.

Working at home takes quite a bit of commitment, and I feel like I'm struggling to maintain. In theory, I should be able to squeeze out about five hours a day to work, but in reality I often fall short.

The biggest road block I seem to encounter is that everybody thinks since I'm WAHM I can drop everything at a moments notice. Frustrating! Sure, a few minutes here and there don't hurt, but getting through to the significant other that I need to focus my time while working has proven challenging. 

All this has just made me more stubborn. Working at home is my best option right now, so I owe it to myself to give it my all.
