Well as the wife of a self-employed bum, I have pondered this question. Today I had a glimpse of what he does do all day! He works! Can you believe it? Today I have been home from work because of my little breathing problem and he has been in about the same place all day! Right in front of the computer, on the phone and emailing his office back and forth! I guess this is a blessing because I get a new perspective to base my expectations of what I think should be done in the day because he is home!
