Do you ever get bored working from home?

I guess it could go even further than being bored. Do you get lonely for that office interaction when you're working at home? I've been working from home for 18 months now. Even though it's been fabulous and convenient, I must say I do miss the office environment. Minus the gossiping! lol

I work at home and study online, and I love the freedom that I have. I am able to plan everything on my own, and I can work in the morning, in the evening or at night. I can listen to music while I am working and I can take a break whenever I feel like it. I have also liked the other jobs that I have had, and I sometimes miss working in a kindergarden, a nursing home or a home for people with special needs. On the other hand it is so convenient to work at home and I save a lot of money that way. I live in the countryside and it would be expensive if I had to drive to work every day.

I also live in the country, though I could probably find a job in town, I like being able to make money online. I don't really make all that much money though so I should probably find another job soon to help support myself and my husband as well. We've got bills coming in that I know we're both stressed about, though we can handle them without any problems.

Working from home is not boring if you are really at it. I mean you see results and get excited about it. I have experienced working full day from home and felt it was time wasted. However, I am more disciplined now and work out weekly and daily schedule. Things are getting more systematic and interesting.

Yes I think with some sort of a system you don't really get as bored as much. Working out a system for when to do certain tasks can also keep things more organized like you've mentioned. It leaves time to have fun with friends and family and do those chores you've got to do around the house.

No I do not get bored or lonely for the office. I love working from home and have my hubby to chat with when I want to take a break. Besides my main income is that I am a tarot card reader, so I talk to people on the phone from the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Australia.

That's my favorite part of not having a real job again yet, when my husband is off work I can go and talk to him, or play games with him. When he's at work I can concentrate on my work so that I can have more time for him when he is off work, though I do need to work on the latter part (working harder)!

I see a work from home as an extra way to earn money.while I would like to own a business,I will still work.I would like to have friends as well as earn money that I can use from my expenditures.I can work from home on weekends and earn extra cash for my expenses for night outs,shopping,or substantial addition to my savings account.

I used to work this as a second job but now I am having to work it as an only job again until I can find another job. It is fun to make money online though, and I like to use the money to help buy video games, as well as to save.

I myself would love to work solely from home. I'm more of a homebody myself anyway, and would love to just sit at home and make my own hours, watch my favorite shows, get new favorite shows, and just spend time with my husband when he got off work. I also have the dream of owning a farm one day!

Since I already have kids, I never get tired working at home. It makes life a lot easier.
