If you have or had a job that could be done from home, was it productive?

You know, we have someone to do those too now, so I'm even more fortunate :)

Yeah. I found I function much better if I get up, shower, eat breakfast and get dressed. It's just nice to be able to wear casual clothes instead of worrying about something nice!

iV is headquartered in NYC, but so far I've never had to go. I'd love to, once DD gets a little older, though. Any excuse to travel!

Telecommuting defined is working from home, so uh, yeah.

I also work pt at a bridal shop. The only thing that changes work clothes wise is the dress trousers instead of jeans. I wear the same knit tops or button blouses at home and at the bridal shop. I've even been known to sew barefooted at the bridal shop. As long as I remember to put them back on before I go up front my boss is ok with that. I've been fortunate in that I've never had to wear the traditional work attire.
