I got the phone call, I already knew it was coming but I wasn’t sure exactly what day it would be.
My time is finally up. My office told us we had to return to work. I returned to work approximately a month ago, and I dream about my Work from Home days. Working from home meant the following for me.
Oh my gosh, the commute. I don’t care if your job is 10 minutes or 1 hour away. No commute is better than a commute. The commute means losing time to cater to yourself and your family.
When you work from home, you can get mid-day hugs from your family. It’s is not an option when you are in the office. Unless, of course, you plan to spend time with your HR department.
I should also mention that I get better hugs now that I work at the office. Since they miss me, they give me big hugs when I get home.
Eating At A Decent Hour
Without the commute, dinner can start earlier.
Working from home means I didn’t have wear and tear on a car, no car payments, decreased car insurance, and less gas. For some, it also means no bus or train passes. I also spent less money on food and clothing. Wearing shorts and t-shirts every day was great.
It was nice working on a laptop laying down or with legs stretched out across multiple chairs without any shoes. I want to see how your co-workers react when you try that at your office desk.
As the old adage goes, “All good things must come to an end.” Back To The Grind.
