Going to work is walking downstairs to my office. The only people other than my family that I see most days are the local post office staff. Most of my friends live at least 250 miles away. Phone calls to printers, shippers and bike owners are often interrupted by the kids fighting.
The upside? I regularly get to take my children out for a leisurely lunch when everyone else is rat-racing.
I won't ever regret spending so much time with them.
