A Home Business

You know what else I love about a home business? Besides the short commute, besides getting to spend lots of time with my husband, besides getting to do so much as a family, besides awesome flexibility, besides it being one of our dreams?

That I can sit in the Living Room doing school with the kids and hear curious noises in the kitchen and wonder what's up and then Mark walks in (dressed in scrubs) with a guilty look on his face and says, "Open your mouth and close your eyes and I will give you a big surprise!" and then I smile and do as asked and get some delicious cookie dough popped in my mouth and the kids enjoy some, too.

That, right as he goes in to see more patients, he tells me there's one more tray to bake while he's in there, timer set and everything.

That when, upon hearing the timer, I go in there to switch out the trays, I see dinner in the crockpot and cooking.

Seamless.

I love my husband! He is THE BEST!!

There really are a LOT of benefits to being a home-based entrepreneur, I couldn't agree more! That's why I CLING to it, despite the fact that I am SCRAPING the bottom most months lately!! LOL! These years will be gone FAR too quickly... we must treasure these moments! :-)

I would have been just delighted with the cookies! The dinner already made is really just icing on the cake. Major brownie points there, Mark! (Sheesh, I must have food on the brain...cookies, cake, brownies...mmm!)

Good grief! Talk about the benefits! I wonder what we're having for dinner tonight!

Tess, I'd love to talk sometime about the CRAP and stress we went through to help us decide that this is for us. And then more of the stress and determination and energy to make this happen. Totally worth it. We love it.

I hear you, HWHL!

LOL, Jessica. PMS? :P

Thanks everyone, I really am one lucky lady. Believe me, I know it (oh, the stories I hear!) and I'm very, very grateful. Very grateful.
