Top 9 Pros and Cons of Working at Home with Your Spouse

K has been working on his top-secret creative project with his brother for the past 2-3 months, and most of it involves crunching on a laptop either in the living room or Starbucks. Not only is that a huge life change, but our cash flow has suddenly gone from a game developer's salary to an entrepreneur's salary when you're first starting out (aka ≤ $0). With K being a huge extrovert and a lover of video games and HeroClix, being stuck at home all the time been hard on him/us, and we sometimes find ourselves doubting if we're hearing God's direction correctly. But He's gotten us out of sticker messes before, so we continue to trust in His plan and timing (Isaiah 55:8-9). ^_^

Anyway, I had a lot of fun making my little image map last week, so here's my creative way of listing my top 9 likes and dislikes (yes, I mixed them together) of working at home with my husband. See if you can guess what each image means, then scroll your mouse over each box to view the answer.

pro: eating lunch together every day
con: harder to make new friendscon: getting sick of each other pro: sleeping in on a weekday pro and con: no coworkers to bother you con: monotony (all the days seem to run together) click link to find out ;) pro: someone to chat with during the day pro: having someone else to help with chores throughout the day

If you have a significant other, are you two always glued to the hip or do you tend to make some time away from each other?

My husband and I have the same thing, we both work at home and basically are sticht to the hip
we have been like this for about 3 years and in the beginning is really annoying beacuse you are NEVER alone, and you tend to talk of the same tings over and over again, our solution, headphones, we work about 3 meters from each other but we try to give each other space
good luck

Lol, good to know that it gets better. K's got some possible contractor jobs lined, and they're all work from home as well. Haven't killed each other yet! ^_~
