To work from home or not.....

that is the question.

My boss offered yesterday that if I wanted to start working from home full time that I could. I would get an office space set up and installed, complete with a work phone. Right now when I work from home, I just use my laptop with a wireless connection and sit at the dining room table. Not exactly ergonomically healthy.

So the pros and cons list is running through my head. Here is what I have so far:

Pros Cons
No commute No daily exercise from walking
Can walk Liam to school every day
Don't have to talk to people at the office No one to talk to
Can wear track pants
Don't have to make a lunch ahead of time Easy access to food
Can putter around the house will reports run Need to stay motivated and actually do "work"
System is slower from home
Increased cost for heating the house during the day
Can listen to loud music while I work

So folks... Weigh in and give me your thoughts! I have a poll up on the side that you can vote on.
