I Admit It.

I like going to work. There, I said it.

Monday was my first day back working a few hours a day in my company's office instead of from home. I got done in 5 1/2 hrs. what it has sometimes taken me 3 days to do remotely. I need quiet. I need structure. If I have these elements, I work quickly and efficiently. If I don't, I am a mess. I have no discipline about letting someone else take care of it, or perhaps it's just wanting to spend time hanging out with my awesome family. However, this job is a necessity, and for that reason, I'm glad to have that structured office environment that I need for just a few hours a day. This is the best of both worlds. Spending a majority of my day at home, with those that I love, and still being able to come home from the few hours I spend away feeling completely stress free. Yes...I like going to work. When my children are older and have more structure to their day, then we will all be able to work at home, but for now, I think this is exactly what I have needed. When I walk out the door, I have no question about their safety, or if they're happy or if they're being allowed to watch The Brady Kids. I leave my children in the most capable hands, period...those of their dad.

Oh just last night I was washing dishes and dreaming about BlogHer coming up. Dreaming about leaving my family for four days. And I realized that I just might like to work outside the home. I might need it. And that is OK. Not sure what my future plans will be, but it's so nice to have the option!
