I walked with my mom for the first time in 4 days. We did 50 min.
My parents had a party last night so I came home from the walk with leftover homemade rolls and homemade banana-nut ice cream. YUM!!

I'm very fortunate that my company allows me to telecommute. I go into the office 2 - 4 times a month. I live approximately 30 miles away from the office. Telecommuting has allowed me to save both time and money.

I save at least an hour a day on the commute. I have to drive a very busy freeway to get to work and in bad weather it can take as long as 2 hours to get home.

I save on car insurance since I drive less than 7500 miles a year, my insurance is reduced. I save in gas costs and wear and tear on the car.

I save on clothes. I wear shorts and t-shirts or sweats at home. No shoes except slippers in the winter time - love it Smile

I save on impulse buys. Days when i go into work I drive past tons of fast food restaurants and stores. It's hard to say no every single day, whereas if I don't see them I don't have to re-resolve not to stop at those places.

I save money on food. When I'm working at home all day I just fix whatever I want for lunch or breakfast. I can cook unlike in the office and I'm not tempted by the cafeteria or fast food places while at home. It's too much hassle to get dressed and drive to a fast-food place.

I can listen to books on tape or CDs while working at home. In the office I can do this, but it's not as comfortable with a headset, plus I'm constantly getting spooked when someone comes up behind me.

While at home I can start a load of dishes or laundry and not have to wait till the evening.

I'm more productive at home since I can concentrate better. No background noises to disturb me and no co-workers dropping in to chat for a half-hour at a time.

The only downside to telecommuting is I don't get snow-days Smile
