Working from home

I've been working from home for about a month now. The benefits are tremendous. I save on gas and aggravation, I can sleep in and work late or get up early and head out early. I can conduct business in establishments that are only open from 9 - 3 on weekdays. My house has much better soundproofing than the office did, so my recordings are of higher quality and have fewer interruptions. But, O! the interruptions. The midmorning doldrums can expand magnificently to fill up time.

And my coworkers clients have started to eat away at my patience. They've done nothing but constrict, tighten, and control my work habits since I started. I can't tell if they just had different expectations of my working from home than I did, or if the distance has started distorting our communications more than I'm willing to allow. It's infuriating that I've had to wait 24 hours - unpaid - on more than one occasion - for a new assignment.

Oh well. The Bose contract is still in limbo, but if I get sick of this job in the next two weeks, I already have another gig to work full-time in January, so MRCC'll have to take backseat anyway.
