Today was a great lesson in why I work at home. I work at home everyday but on the weekends I also work outside the home. This morning while I was getting ready to go to work Katie wanted to play ball. I had to explain that I had to get ready for work. She burst into tears. Now this isn't a usual occurance so it kind of surprised me. She told me she wanted me to stay home forever and not go to work.. I felt so bad but I remembered also the days when we would cuddle for just a few minutes and then I would take her to daycare and I wanted to yell.. NO I want you to stay here forever!
I also had to remember though that for the most part I LIKE working on weekends. It really is the only time I get away from the house and have some time for me. I don't belong to a bowling league or any other kind of league or group so I don't have a regular day or evening that I get away. My getting away is going to work. I work at a golf course so I get to see the regulars who are like friends and I get to meet new people too. It is a nice break from sitting in front of a computer all day or even playing balls or barbies all day.
Getting away is something we all need to do for ourselves. Whether it be a regular day that you go to the gym or getting out of the house to go to "work" a couple times a week.
