Work-life: are you good at keeping clear boundaries?

I pride myself for eating well, sleeping at regular hours - well before midnight and exercising regularly.  I tell how I work about the equivalent of 10 hours a week.  However, I have realized this week, that as I work from home, I have failed miserably at keeping track of all I do for work, on top of the 10 hours: reading, researching, writing, social networking, reading zillions of emails, and probably other stuff I just don't remember now.

While it is not terrible to do all those extras - I actually immensely enjoy the reading and researching and writing and the social networking, I have decided to track my time for the next two weeks, and record everyting I am doing that is work related, every half-hour, from the time I get out of bed to the time I retire at night.

If you too work from home and either feel pulled in all directions or feel the least bit frazzled, I challenge you to record for a week or more, exactly "where the time goes".  Like me, you may want to continue the various activities or, like I plan to, you may want to learn to use the office or the computer or IPhone within certain hours only.
