New WAH job, a little overwhelmed.

I just started a new work at home job and I'm having a bit of a struggle with getting things undercontrol. I have a specific time that I need to work, no phone, just online, but I have to be available to answer chats/email. Anyone have any suggestions on how to transition easier? The time is not exactly the easiest as it's 6pm, but still I need some ideas.

Hey, that's exactly what time I start my work shift (Sun - Thurs)!

I survive by making sure to have all of the "house" stuff done by then, meaning errands, homework, feeding people and pets, yada yada yada.  That way once 6 rolls around, I'm ready to focus on work and nothing but work.

It helps if you let your friends and family know your schedule so they don't bug you too.

What part has been wild for you?
