I was at a conference in Miami last week for work. It was a chance to meet people I work with from all over the country. There was a lot of small talk, including about kids, and the joys of working from home, which many people there do, just like me. I tended to get the best reaction from people when I told them that I work from home, but I have an hour commute each way. That is how about long it takes to drop off both kids at both schools in the morning and get back home, and another hour in the evening. People wondered if I live close to their schools, and sadly, yes I do. It is just a slow process with lots of walking and doors and washing hands and unpacking and packing getting in and our of car seats. And don’t even get me started on the traffic.
