Staying at home

Guest written by our friend Mason Abbott.

Being a stay at home mom means I get to take care of the house – it’s my responsibility. I know that some people think they’d love to be at home all day but it really is kind of suffocating after a while – I get really bored here all day long. Not only that but it’s a lot of work taking care of this place…I’m also in charge of a lot of home stuff like paying the bills and looking into home security family which takes up a lot of my time. I’m really happy to be able to spend so much time with my kids and watch them grow up – I don’t know how working moms sleep at night knowing they’re missing so much of their kids’ lives. I think it’s important to note that there’s nothing wrong with being at work during the days I just know I would have a tough time missing some of the special momentsI’ve gotten to witness being here at home. I love my husband for giving me this opportunity.

I work from home, quite a bit. The thing that irritates me is that people don't respect what you're doing the same way as they respect office workers.

For instance I sometimes get calls from friends, in the middle of my work day. It would be something like: "come help me move something" or "my computer isn't working, come fix it".

If I was working at an office they would wait till after work to ask me.
