“I don’t know how you do it. I don’t know how you work from home. I couldn’t do it. I would see the laundry that needs to be done. Or the kitchen that needs to be picked up. I would do those things instead of working.”
When I tell people that I work from home and have for over 10 years these are the comments I hear. My response? Actually it is harder for me to turn off my work and get the housework done. Just ask my husband. He will tell you all about it!
For most people working from home sounds like a dream. There are definitely perks that is for sure. I don’t have to sit in rush hour traffic. I can work in my sweatpants all day if I chose to (and some days I chose to!). I rarely ever put on makeup which is a nice bonus. When it is nice outside in the summer I can work on my deck. I live in Minnesota– I have to take advantage of those nice days! And one of my favorite bonuses of working from home is that I never have to put on shoes.
