I have two independent contracts that I'm working simultaneously. On one of
them, call it Client 1, I'm getting old documents to work on very
sporadically. I need to be on line 9-5, checking my email frequently, in
case they send me something, in which case it needs a very rapid
turnaround. The work I do only takes me an hour to an hour and a half per
document, but I might get one document every other day.

Since I'm working another contract during the off-times, I feel like I
should only charge Client 1 for the actual work I do. On the other hand, I
feel like I should charge them something for being so constantly available.
