I’ve spent the last 2 years self-employed but circumstances have led me to take my first “job”in two years. What is normal for many has been a dramatic lifestyle change for my family.
The flexibility of self-employment traded for the stability of an 8 - 5. I didn’t realize how bad I was at mornings until I had to get out the door by 7:30am. Until a couple of weeks ago I didn’t often get out of bed until 7:30. Things they had been team efforts for my wife and I have been thrust almost wholly on her. He kids haven’t taken the transition well either, I don’t think I truly understood how much they liked me until they showed how much they didn’t like me being out of the house.
Everyone misses me at my desk in the office off the master. I miss it too, but I’m not sure that I miss it the most.
Working in an office is weird.
