What Does Working COST?

Only a note... I worked from 6:15am til 4:15pm today (intense presenting work where I was "on" all day) and still have "homework." But wanted to pop in and say this...

Tonight I am exhausted. I am not cooking. So we ordered a pizza. Quite a dent in the $200 budgeted, if I subtract take-out. I rarely work at a paying/outside the home job, but I sure thought about the "cost" of work today.

Today I also listened to a woman grieve over the fact that she is going back to work, leaving her 8.5 month old at home...and that 1/3 of her monthly paycheck will go for daycare.

So how much does working COST you?
