I'm blessed (and cursed) with the luxury of working from home. The cursed part comes in when your significant other has two weeks off over the holidays while you still have to work! (I'm sure the same can be said for having the kiddos off from school or the in-laws in town.) If you find that all the distractions are making it difficult to work, why not tackle one (or all) of these simple house tasks when you're feeling less-than-productive. They might not be fun, but the project will keep you busy and the end result will be satisfying for months to come.
