On how I get so much done

This summer, Jessica decided that she did not want to go to day camp as she has in previous years and so we agreed to give her staying home a try. We had some intense negotiation first (Me: “You will have to be patient while I work.” Jess: “You can bring me to the coffee shop with you and I will have Diet Coke and a cookie.”)

As much as I love getting to spend extra time with Jessica, there is a downside in that she always notices when I am on Facebook.

And that, my friends, is my key to productivity.
