“Working” from Home…

homeofficeAfter two weeks of working remotely, I think I can officially take the “air quotes” away from “working” from home. I had forgotten how much you get done at home without running to the printer, only to find the toner is out or the paper needs refilling; coffee on the way in, coffee at 11 AM, coffee at 2:30 PM; acknowledging anyone and everyone who pops their head in your door — with a smile — no matter the deadline you’re on; and the improvisational greeting, meeting, etc.

But on the other hand, I miss the banter, the energy, the quick meet and greets, the staff meetings in person, the face-to-face conversations where I KNOW no one is multi-tasking and I can actually read their body language, etc.

The jury’s not necessarily still out. It’s just hung. Yin. Yang. Pos. Neg. Pro. Con. And every other one syllable homonym combo I can conjure up. But I’m working. At home or in an office, as long as I’m working, life is good.
