About me:
I am a displaced Yooper - I am from Michigan's Upper Peninsula, but currently live in the Lower Peninsula. That's ok for now, but I miss it. I have two beautiful children, a girl and boy, who keep me so busy, and a really great husband that I love being married to. I recently began working from home for Work at Home United and I love it, but am having so much trouble balancing it with time with my kids...
My interests:
cooking, reading, NASCAR,
My website/blog:
http://www.workathomeunited.com/cwhalen www.livetotalwellness.com/cwhalen
How I de-stress:
have a cup of coffee or tea, go shopping, visit with friends, read a great book
Best advice I've gotten:
Don't worry about having a clean house when the kids are little. They are only little for a short time. Make the most of this time with them.
Adjective to describe me:
Uptight (I'm not proud of it).
My favorite book:
My Antonia by Willa Cather
My favorite movie:
Cold Mountain

  • Hey yoopermom,
    I've definitely been where you are. The first few months that I worked from home were really difficult. I felt really guilty for the time that I was home but not spending with my daughter. I think now we've worked out a doable schedule, and I'm sure you will too.

    I'm a moderator for Work it, Mom! If you ever have comments or questions about the site, please feel free to let me know:). I look forward to reading more of what you write.
