Why fight it? November 21, 2008 5:49 pm

Sometimes you just can’t fight the current. I am desperately trying to produce some results for a client but now Amy is home so I’m refereeing the fights between Evan and Amy. Dinner tonight is pork roast and homemade mashed potatoes so I type a line of code and check the stove. Type a line of code, answer a question for Tommy ("When did the walls get painted?") Type a line of code, install a Firefox plugin I need for faster development (Firebug wasn’t on this machine).

This is not much different than working in a cube farm on a Friday before a holiday and having constant interruptions from fellow employees. It is a difficult way to work and far from ideal but if I remember to stay calm, not eat any children, and breathe, the work will get done.
