Do You Ever Work from Your Couch?

Do You Ever Work from Your Couch?

We work from home part of the day. Although we have a tiny, dual-purpose home office/guest room, it ends up functioning mostly as file storage and a reading nook. A lot of the time (we're embarrassed to admit) we just end up working from the couch. We've tried to break the habit to no avail...

We mix it up a lot, using the laptop at the kitchen table, on the deck when the weather's nice, or even down the street at a coffee shop. But the sofa is our favorite spot. It's comfortable, gets great light, and now that we have a dog, he likes to hang out at our feet while we work. The sofa-as-home-office also has a few problems: staying organized, finding the right portable laptop desk solution, and (most of all) being able to let go of work when it's time to just chill on the couch. We're wondering if anyone out there has the same conundrum?

Do you ever work from your couch?
If you do, how do you separate work time from home time?
