This is really tough. People seem to think that because you are home, you aren't "really" working. Well the fact is I sure am! That means I can't just drop what I am doing to go out to eat lunch, or chat on the phone for awhile... I am working. I can't even tell you how many times I have had to tell my own kids "I am working, I need quiet and no distractions."

So, I am very firm about boundaries. Don't call me or come over if I am working. You will not be invited in and your phone call will not be answered. If you are good at keeping boundaries then you should be fine.
