Staying in to work on a cold day

One of the huge perks of working from home is not having to leave the house at all some days. I sit at my desk, coffee cup in hand, clad in comfy fleece at noon or later, typing away on the next 700-word masterpiece. Or maybe I'm taking a break, checking to see what my fellow work-at-home-mothers have been talking about on one of the many message boards I frequent.

Either way I have control of my time. What's not to love about that? Well, except for piddling away the hours and a facing an ever-looming deadline!

On cold days like today, I don't have to get out there and warm up my car and drive down to the office. I can stay in the house and be just as productive — if not more so — than I would have been had I been in an office.

It's not quite noon yet and I've already done an interview, have sent off some story queries, and am getting ready to write a short piece. Oh yeah, and fix lunch for my kids who are out of school for a holiday. I better get that PB&J out.
