Under normal circumstances, you could say I work from home. Sure, the BmoreArt team meets at the office on Mondays, and I go in a couple times for meetings throughout the week. I drive around town and to DC and have meetings in buildings and drink coffee outside and take phone calls sitting in my car. But I also spend a lot of my days in a second bedroom-cum-studio sitting either in the back-supportive desk chair my husband bought me two Christmases ago or upright on the standing mat he got me for my birthday using the standing desk topper that was this year’s Christmas gift (in the days since we were all ordered to “stay home” I’ve seen many friends asking for work from home chair and desk options and I fully endorse all three components of my setup, hence the links here).
Under normal circumstances, working from home is fine, and in many ways, I prefer it. I get to spend a lot of QT with Theodore Roosevelt, our 2-year-old rescue pup, taking him on walks throughout the day as a break from staring at the computer or rubbing the side of my face against my iPhone. I can get the laundry and the dishes done while writing and I can go to the grocery store at off-peak hours. My superhero friends with kids also accomplish childcare while working that they would otherwise have to pay for. Working from home is nothing less than a 21st-century miracle for a productivity-loving multitasker—a description of me I absolutely embraced until last week.
