Next week, I'm starting telecommuting part time (every other week on site) and eventually moving to full-time (on site when needed, maybe a week or so every month). I'm wondering if I'm doing the right thing even though it will eliminate a 2+ hour daily commute and will allow me to move closer to family. I almost dread the thought of not being in the middle of things every day (see my previous post about our work environment).

Anyone have any advice for someone about to start telecommuting and how to deal with the usual stuff--boredom, distractions, lack of "face time" with others? How do I keep from getting so starved for adult conversation that I latch onto strangers at the grocery store or talk my husband's ears off? How do I keep from rearranging the furniture in the house or doing my spring cleaning when I'm supposed to be working? I'd like to know what's worked for other people.

Thanks in advance,
