Work Beautifully

I received an ad for Dell and the title said, "Work Beautifully."

I work on a Dell, so according to their ad, I work beautifully.

The slogan also reminded me of being a work-at-home-mom.

I don't usually blog about the occasional chaos that working from home can bring. Like when I need to respond to an urgent email and I have a crying child on my lap demanding my attention.

Or the dark eye circles I have due to only getting an average of 6 hours a sleep because I have to get up at 3 a.m.

In the overall picture of life, I am and will always be grateful to have been able to contribute to the family finances as well as be with my girls.

I work beautifully, dark eye circles and all.

For the first time in 4 years of working from home, I didn't complete my tax logging during the week between Christmas and New Year's.

It's the end of February and I do a few receipts a day.

AND, I just found $30 in cash amongst the receipts! Cool.

Good luck to all the other WAHMs as they prepare their taxes!

Future WAHM?

Kate (4) enjoys typing on my computer. Notice the cell phone. I adore hearing her "make calls" while working.

I'm so thankful for the opportunity to work from home - something not available to previous generations.

You know you're a WAHM...

You know you are a thankful Work at Home Mom when you don't have to commute on icy roads to get to work.

Crazy cold and icy weather here in North Texas. Just making our way through the Walmart parking lot was a slippery adventure.

I'm able to sit here at my desk in my fleece and a blanket (yesterday I even wore the heated neck wrap) and work away.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
