sure u could work from home. I would say after first week of getting off pain medicine. My employer is very old fashioned and does not believe in work from home. They must think I would be sitting at home in my underwear doing nothing all day (they are right lol). They never offered work at home but even if they did I would tell them no thanks because my kids wouldn't let me get any work done.
5 kids umm can you imagine? "Dad, can you take us swimming?" "DAD?"
Age:31 Married with children.
