'Work at home' would not work for me - I am easily distracted. Squirrel!
I was able to retire several years before the Princess. As she prepared to retire, I told her to stay out of MY kitchen and to always remember that I already have a shadow. Didn't have to worry about the first, and I have been trying to catch up to her ever since.
My husband and I always worked together but separately. I was in one greenhouse doing stuff, and he was usually in a hole somewhere fixing stuff.
It worked out fine.
Then during the recession he needed to work for income at another nursery, while I worked to keep his nursery alive- but not necessarily make any money to pay bills with (His ego could not accept defeat), and when we were home together I wanted to rip off his head and scream down his neck to' back off and give me some space!'
I could not turn around without him being RIGHT THERE.
Every drawer I needed to open, he was leaning against.
Every doorway I need to get through, he was lingering in.
I am glad he has adjusted and has gotten over his insecurities because I was about to lose it.
He would then say,"But I miss you." so snapping would have been in bad form.
