Of course, there's WORK and then there's PAID WORK.
Even "PAID WORK" can be a bit ambiguous. Working on your side business doesn't generate $25, $15 or even $5 an hour necessarily -- but it moves you towards making money eventually. Is adding pages to your for-profit blog considered paid work?
Or in my case -- you have a website that makes a bit of money. But spending time working on it, adding features, content, etc. doesn't exactly make you any MORE money. So does maintenance of a home business count as "paid work"?
And of course maintaining your home, taking care of children, going shopping, doing errands, maintaining your grounds (lawn mowing, weedwhacking, cleaning gutters, trimming trees, dealing with flooding, etc.) can't be considered recreation or fun, but is it "paid work"?
