Working Girl

My daughter and her husband have moved to a different bedroom in their house. He says she has now doubled her commute. (Her home office is a few steps further away!) Lucky girl designed her own beautiful comfortable a room that opens to their deck. Her talented husband loved building her very expensive looking, customized desk.  A well known corporation pays her to work there everyday.  No Seattle commute with horrendous freeway traffic, no cubicle, no wishing for a window, a corner office, or a cleaner restroom. No expenses for downtown lunches, spontaneous shopping trips, or daily perfect makeup and ever changing wardrobe with the essential five accessories. It is most amazing to me that she is not isolated, and enjoys close relationships with many of her work colleagues around the world. Technology is apparently the water cooler of corporate life.  (4 more, but who's counting?)

My middle daughter
an RN.
Now works from home for
a health care company.
Loves it
and I kept thinking she would feel isolated.
Not so
she says..
A different world - now.

I worked from home for years, upsides and downsides. Hard for this one to pull discipline together and climb out of the PJs. I don't do good work in PJs, odd that.
I loved the photographer story, our 3 generations had one like that, we walked around and laughed and she caught gorgeous shots of us all of us in jeans and black sweatshirts.

I hope things are still working out well for your daughter in her home office. I would have liked that in my corporate days.

Thinking of you, too.
