Working in the office has some advantages. Before our governor ordered state employees to work from home, I given an assignment to complete a project that had been started, but then suspended. I encountered the same roadblock that caused the developer to put the project on hold. My proposal, sent via email, to add rows to various tables got shot down without explanation. It took a conference call for others to realize that I was on the right track. This week-long delay could've been solved in a day in an office environment.
Working from home also has its advantages, when everything works right. In April, South Carolina got hit with a string of tornadoes. While there were no touchdowns in the county where I live in and the storms were not severe, I did lose power twice for about an hour with each outage the day after the tornadoes. After the second outage, my cable/internet didn't come back until the next day. Fortunately, I have a Verizon MiFi and was able to connect to work after the second outage.
I also find the commute listening (while listening to classic rock), like latkinson, marks the transition between work and home. It's hard to turn off work when working from home. One thing I don't miss is when my next door cube neighbor starts humming. But there is a noise distraction at home right now; an army of landscapers have their leaf blowers, string trimmers, and mowers going at the subdivision across the street from me.
I'm taking breaks to spend time with our dogs. One of our 11 year-olds has an aggressive form of cancer. Surgery removed the tumor, but clean margins were not guaranteed. Without radiation, which starts next week, he could have a few months.
I am getting two to three weeks per 13 gallons of gas versus one week with 13 gallons.
One other thing, I started physical therapy in March after the lockdown started, so that allows some social interaction. My daily pain level went from a 6 to a 0 with an occasional 2.
