Ring, Ring, Ring…
Felicia: Hello, Ms. Employer. I’m calling to let you know I won’t be in to work today. Please put me down for a personal day.
Employer: Not coming in? Why not?
Felicia: Last night I stayed up helping my daughter pack for camp and I’ve got to drive several hours today to drop her off.
Employer: You already used up your personal days with your family, I’m sorry but if you take off today, you’ll have to come in on Christmas Eve and put in a full day
Felicia: (long pause)
Employer: Hello, Felicia are you there?
BUZZZZZZZZZZ!!!! (The sound of an alarm clock)
Whew! It was all a dream.
Every once in a while when working at home gets a bit tough, I wonder if I made the right decision. After all, I left the security of having a steady paycheck, to the not so secure position of going out on my own and earning money with my writing ability.
No matter the difficulties I face with my daily work at home challenges, I’m 100% sure that I made the right decision. There’s no going back so I have to make this work!
The above wasn’t all a dream. I’m off to take my daughter to camp. One of the fringe benefits of working from home!
