The Cons and Pros of Working from Home . . .

Cons of working from home . . .

1. People assume that since you're home, you're available to volunteer, babysit, chat, etc.
2. You are entirely too close to the washing machine, dishwasher, refrigerator and TV.
3. Talking to your cat, dog, goldfish or self is decidedly less stimulating that talking to actual human beings.
4. Children don't realize that when you're facing the computer screen and typing madly, you're actually working. "He breathed on me!" "Well he breathed on me first!"
5. Telemarketing calls. Survey calls. Library reminder calls.
6. If you steal office supplies, well . . .

Pros of working from home . . .

Numbers 1 and 2 . . . oh, don't even get me started.

Also, for pros, don't forget the daily stay in pajamas unless you actually have to leave the house MOA.

I so agree with your cons list. Oh, I'm going to need to blog on this too someday. There are pros for me, none dealing with dressing like a clown (though you look great). My favorite pros 1. time with my daughter, 2. being in control of my own success. Thanks for sharing your list (and yea that photo!)........Paul
