Work from home
Work from home - it's a dream. No need to hurry, always have time to do all the housework, not wasting time, money and energy on the way to work. And if you're a mom, this is generally what you need. You can plan your day to have time to help your child with homework, time to pick him up from school and do not have to hire a babysitter.
I have a friend (though she does not have children) who works at home on the phone. She's like Julius Caesar - does several things at once: answers the phone calls, watchs TV and shops online and all that she does while she is lying on the couch.
All people think so.
So your friend is really like Jullius Caesar - probably I'm not)
I love working from home and am very grateful. It is a dream come true for me or us rather because we've been working towards a home business since 2005.
Example: If I am working on my laptop in the main area of our home, I can instruct children to do their handwriting, Math or reading at the dining room table or go practice piano in the front room, ask a child switch laundry as they walk by, remind another child to feed our old horse at lunch time, tell two others to go collect eggs or feed the chickens.
I have to say though, having my husband home has been such a blessing because now there are two of us to stay on top of eight children so the work is divided.
Simply put, I am the manager of the home/farm/businesses, coordinating everyone to do what needs to be done. I definitely do not do it all myself. It's all about learning to work together as a unit or team.
