I have to say, if a woman has to work for an income, working from home is a great choice. And I'm blessed that I'm allowed to do so. I have very few distractions when the kids aren't home; no water cooler gossip, few surprise meetings, and lots of quiet! One of the bad things though, are the lack of social activities (if you're a social butterfly, which I'm not.) and the "out of sight, out of mind" issues. As in, no one notices me until I make a mistake. It's not a great feeling. So imagine my surprise when I received flowers from a doctor's office!
