Okay-a little poll here-How many of you "stay at home" moms get to really "stay at home"?????
Today I woke up and realized that today I was going to have the luxury of staying home all day-accomplishing things that have been put off-washing every washable textile in my home...and other various and sundry things that I needed/wanted to do............
I really love staying home-I mean I really, really love being at home. I could probably be a hermit.
Which is why, years ago, when the necessity arrived, I decided to start my own stay-at-home business (medical transcription).
In order to "stay at home" I had to leave every morning and pick up micro tapes filled with doctor's voices, bring them home, transcribe them, print them and deliver them back the next day. I did this five days a week, 52 weeks a year for 13 years. And I really can't complain-I did get to "stay at home" and work at home. It wasn't easy-but it was a great blessing.
Then I got smart with technology-figured out how to really work at home, got rid of the docs that still wanted the personal delivery every day so now I could really "stay at home" to work.
The goal of "staying home" today fizzled away by 9:30 when I realized that I didn't have the posterboard necessary to complete the project for Primary Sharing time. No problema, just make a quick trip to pick up the needed item. Returning home, ready to finish the 5th load of towels/rugs/etc. I began to work on my "stay at home" business. Then the printer ran out of ink.......and I got a text message from Alyssa stating that "would I please come to swim practice today so I could pay for her team suit???"
