I do the same thing. I don't want to get in someone's way and be annoying in any way while they're trying to do their job (because i wouldn't want someone doing that to me.) But I am always close by - usually in the next room and i will check in on them once in a while and offer them a cold drink or something to eat (and kind of check on the job they're doing while trying to be polite
I am VERY careful about having strangers in my house- i do not trust men i do not know- i'm just really careful. If i'm expecting to have someone strange in my home- i always try to schedule it for when Colin is off work to be here with me. When people come over- i normally put the kitties up in the cat room because i'm always afraid someone will leave a door open. I also put Fosters our Aussie, up in the master bedroom because i know he'd just be right there in their way while they try and work ...he'd try and slobber them to death
Whiskey though- he's my little guard dog- i keep him close by- he stays right with me when i have a repair person over- i know he'd go after someone in a heart beat if they tried to hurt me.
Also....the cop car parked out in the driveway is normally a bit motivating for people not to try anything rotten
That and well, this Southern Belle can shoot a gun like it's nobodys business
I can take care of myself- but i am always cautious!
