People telecommute and talk about working in their pajamas, hitting a bottle of bourbon throughout the workday, or watching TV while they work (I have no idea how you could code with the TV on, but whatever).
Today I took a short lunch. I fed the chickens, checked the bees, dug two more post holes, and tidied the kitchen a bit. All of which I would have had to do tonight, after driving home for 60-90 minutes. That means that when I’m done with my job for the day, I already have some of the things on my plate either done or moving forward. I get an evening.
I might even do something I want to do, just because I want to.
Screw drinking hooch in my PJ’s. I get HOURS of my life back, daily, because I telecommute. Should have done this years ago.
