Do you work at home or outside of the home?

I worked outside of the home until my job ended. It was seasonal. I've never tried working out of my home and I'm kind of interested...

I work from home, a family run business as well as contract for another company. It definitely has it's benefits - no commuting, etc. In theory, you'd get to spend more time with your kids this way. Not so. Having your children come in and out of your work area/office is frustrating because even though you're "home", you are still at work. You can't jump up to have a quick tea party, or go pick up so-and-so to come over. Working from home - you actually have to leave the house in order to get away from work. It is hard. I'm actually on this site today because I'm frustrated feeling like I've not enjoyed my children being home this summer ... It's worth a try, for sure, and maybe it depends how old your children are and how they can occupy themselves. Good luck to you!
