  1. True enough… Working at home also gave me the time to actually LIVE LIFE and not just get by waiting for the days to pass by me. This year, I even listed a few things/skills I’d love to learn. Can’t even think of that when I was still in the corp world. 🙂

  2. I mostly agree with the order of the list, however, for my own situation working from home does not mean a quieter atmosphere or less distractions… I’ve got two little boys that make sure that doesn’t happen. 😉

    BTW – I have just discovered and I have to admit that I’ll probably be back here often.

    You’ve got a lot of good stuff here!
