The Perks of Working at Home

I design websites for a living, cook breakfast, wash the dishes, then feed, bathe and play with my son at the same time. Sounds like too much of a juggle? I don't think so.

I survived the first crucial year of mommyhood, tending to my son's needs, always there to see my baby's sloppy first, watching him grow every minute, never missing a milestone - while at the same time earning money for our basic needs. See? That reason alone is the greatest perk of working at home.

I just can't throw a friend away

There's this one book that I have for more than a decade already. I had this since I was in high school.

I remember the day when randomly picked a book from a bookshelf in our school library, filled up my library card, and went home. I opened the book, started reading it and for seven days it became my sleeping pill. It's a very small book, but it took me a week to finish it because I kept putting it down but most of the time, the book would send me to sleep. I did not appreciate it. I was 13 then.
