Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas, and often meet to gossip or share ideas. On the other hand, we bossed ourselves around, set impossible goals, and demanded longer hours than office jobs usually entail. It was the ultimate “flextime,” in that it depended on how flexible we felt each day, given deadlines, distractions, and workaholic crescendos. – Diane Ackerman
FOCUS: 30 Days of Thanks
Today I am thankful that I work from home. Having done so for the past fifteen years, I can’t imagine things any other way – the commute is great, the dress code relaxed and I have the cutest, most friendly coworkers in the world (my dogs). Working from home has allowed me to perfectly balance being a mom and having a career, and for that I am eternally grateful.
