Why I’m a Spoiled Brat—#3

Because I’m a freelance editor, I get to work at home. This means that I can set my own hours, I don’t have to fight rush-hour traffic, I have no noisy office mates (except when my dear husband decides to work at home), and I don’t have to follow a dress code. On snowy days like today, that’s particularly welcome! (Note to self: Remember to tell the kids to shovel the walk after school.)

Now you're taunting us office working stiffs, Ann. I'm sitting at my desk in my under heated office wishing I were at home in my warm jammies and slippers. And your view is much better than my cubicle wall :)

You are definitely taunting the working stiffs. :)

I would really like to not be working for a corporation right now. A small company or freelancing, doing what I love... KNITTING.

Or working with yarn, or something.

Design, graphic design. Something arty.

Well, at least I can get away with wearing my Chucks to the office and not get yelled at too much.

I think Francesca might offer some sort of ad fee for you posing with such comfy boots/slippers. After all no ????? were harmed in making the "fleece" for those warm linings:)

HA HA I got the same slipper boots for Christmas. I love them!

I'm a freelance art director in publishing, also work from home. Home, for me, is a modestly-sized sheep farm in northwestern Massachusetts. I love working at home, and it would be hard to go back to an office environment.

But...once in a rare while, I miss being in an office setting. I must be crazy!
