Working from home – My 100-year-old house does not have a dedicated office for me to work in. And I do not have a desktop computer either. So I wander with my laptop, from a desk on the front porch, to a table in the basement or the kitchen counter, all depending on who else is in the house and where. The front porch has definitely been a fun place to work – lots of windows, lots of birds, a few strangers passing by – enough for distraction.
I’m grateful for – All the time I get to spend with my 17 year old and 15 year old, that we would have never had otherwise. Typically, I would rarely see them because of my work and their school/activities.
Tiring of technology – I am really sick of Zoom meetings! Virtual does not do the job. You can not get inspired by your 13-inch computer monitor.
Going back to work – I thought I would enjoy working from home more. Under normal circumstances, I am always at work and wish I could be home. Now, I just want to be at work.
