I am so thankful for Brian's job. Brian works from home, which means that he doesn't have to get up all crazy early to battle traffic for his morning commute. It also means that he usually gets home around 3:00 and does office work for the last couple of hours of the day, so I don't have to wait for him to battle an afternoon of freeway traffic either. There are times when he has to get up early and leave, or has an appointment later in the afternoon that causes him to come home later, but for the most part, he's only out of the house between 10:00-2:00.
I'm also thankful for his flexible schedule that allows him to attend and participate in meetings and appointments for Sadie. Sure, he will be on the phone while we're driving helping someone with a problem, or he'll step out to take a work-related call, but the fact that he's there means a lot. He is also able to run some of my errands since he is out and all over the valley during the week visiting accounts.
I realize that we're really spoiled being able to both work from home, and I'm so thankful for that. It means we get to spend more time with our children, we get to spend more time with each other, and we spend less money on things like gas, eating out for lunch, and clothing that is work appropriate!!
