Juggling a full-time job, a family with young children, and trying to fit in all the things we love to do as a couple can be a challenge. On top of that financial needs of two mortgages, living expenses, and schools – okay and hobbies (which we rarely sacrifice because we believe it is fundamental in our sanity). Anyway, salaries and a tennant cover our expenses and that’s about it. Being a remote employee – not to mention a work from home employee has it’s ups and downs. The boundaries can be challenging and some situations just tend to be unavoidable. All that said, work has been so disappointing as of late. The powers that be preach one thing and managers do another. Who knows where the motivation is… but it’s FRUSTRATING! I believe that if I wasn’t remote my path in my job would have different.
