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.

    Thats the most difficult in working at home for me. Working at home means your job + working by home)). And you should find time for both...

      Iullia, i have a little expirience working at home and I can say it's not a dream - it's just a work)). Still the same - but your hubby thinks you have alot of time for yourself...
      All people think so.

      So your friend is really like Jullius Caesar - probably I'm not)

        I find more time to work than I will clean. When I wasn't working from home, cleaning my house was a priority up there with my children. It's a juggling act to balance everything.

        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.

        Theresa, frankly, we are all curious where do you find time for all your stuff .. 8 kids, farm, blogging... You have a secret, definitely!))

        I don't think it's a secret as much of it is a very supportive, involved husband and us learning to manage a large household slowly over the years and still learning to be honest. Kind of like project management, except it is 24/7. Our children all have responsibilities and help us. They are in training to do our jobs as they grow older.

        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.
