I feel the same way. I’ve been working from home for four years now, and can’t understand why more people don’t. I used to work jobs that required my physical presence, but now that I don’t, I love not having to commute, having my own kitchen to make healthier food, and all the other benefits that go with working from home.

Then again: I don’t have kids. And I’m almost freakish in my lack of need for social interaction. As hard as it is for me to understand, some people actually like going to work.

But when I see the highway at a standstill leading out of the city in the evening while I’m whizzing by in the other direction heading to the beach, it’s hard not to think that there has to be a better way.
