Working from home with a family is literally almost impossible some days. You get a mommy come wipe my butt, I want an apple, I need , I need, I need……!!!!! Heeelllpppp!
You may think so…
I’ll be honest with you. For me it only gets harder.
- You become pregnant and worry about the pregnancy and birth. After the baby is here you worry about SIDS and other ailments.
- At 1 year you are chasing this little being around and trying to baby proof to only fail when your precious little womb monster gets into the kitty litter box and thinks it’s their very own personal sandbox.
- The terrible two’s come the biting and temper tantrums.
- The terrorist threes or becoming a threenager comes the “hormonal times” emotions. The whining and potty training that keeps reverting. If you raise your voice the least little bit and your little girl becomes this weird science project gone wrong.
I swore I was done having kids because I had enough hormones going to go around in 10 years. I’ll be drowning in feminine products and chocolate every month.
My girls are big sisters now…Yep that’s as far as I’ve gotten before I decided to add another to the mix.
Two 3 year olds and a 4 month old.
What was I thinking??
Working at home has it’s ups and downs. Furthermore, it just seems to never end some days. On the other hand, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.
Back to the topic at hand.
So I started working at home in 2010 for a big name call center. I handled medical insurance claims.
I got cussed out on the daily from people who didn’t know me from Adam but everything was always my fault.
Got laid off in 2011 and tried to find other jobs. Yep fast forward to 2012 still no job and I become pregnant. Come 2013 no job but I adopted my niece when I was 7 months pregnant. It was rough. But we made it somehow work.
Skip to 2015. I found this amazing company to be a part of.
I make my own money. Provide for my family. Even go on a vacation that I haven’t had in 4 years. Not to mention it was at the beach; somewhere I haven’t been in 17 years!!!
I was even able to work on vacation here and there because I was free to. I accomplish everything via phone and wifi.
Getting paid while you are sleeping beside your family in a beach hotel room is an experience I don’t take lightly. It’s something I never even would have dreamt of.
It’s amazing to say the least.
The constant mommy I need you is the downside.
Sometimes you don’t feel that you are spending enough time with your kids. The tv becomes the baby sitter. Of course there is some guilt.
Consequently the laundry piles up. The kitchen sink gets full. You don’t shower until you begin to smell yourself due to the fact you’ve been working so hard.
Sometimes life just happens.
What do you do? You remind yourself why you started. You keep pushing harder and never give up. Otherwise it’ all for nothing.
Furthermore, you may be working from home on your phone a lot, however; you are with your family. Not only are you there to hold your baby while she sleeps, To kiss your toddlers booboo’s. To greet your husband with a kiss every single morning. It really is an amazing life. As a result, it leads to a happier life.
As a result there is going to be less stress.
Be Thankful for what you have but If you ever want more.. Change your life with me.
