  1. Gad, another lesson in "the grass is always greener."
    Just one day I'd love to be able to head to work without a bra. (And without anyone judging me.)

  2. Bad days:
    Leave chair you sat down in to check your email at 5am exactly three times before night. Two of those times are bathroom breaks. The third time is to get the pizza when it arrives.

    Yeah, I've been there.

  3. With the exception of "leave the house" and "wear a bra" those categories apply to my job working outside my home as well. I don't care who you are – marital relations, a party and presents equal a DAMN FINE DAY.

  4. As someone who works from home, I totally agree with all of these.

  5. as a worker from home now as well…

    i'm finding more and more ways to go braless and still feel *refreshed* and pretty when i leave the house. The key for my wardrobe is great supported tank tops…with rainbows.

    Otherwise, I hide my *not so dapper self* in a huge hoodie…cause u know, itz cold here in TX. :P now.

  6. I'm a Contractor in a Social Work field, so I do get to leave my house and meet new, interesting people all the time, but I have to measure mine in terms of boundaries, which is what your list ultimately sounds like (i.e. – I did things for myself and my family, not just for my job!). Not working after a certain time of the day/having intentional interactions with others outside of work and family are always at the top of the list.
