    I prefer going to work.

    I'm single with no kids, so that's where I get most of my social interactions. Which is cool when you have great coworkers but awful when you don't.

    That's one of the many reasons I like giving guitar lessons. Students become friends through the common love of music.

    But my dogs are closest to my heart. They'd prefer it if I stayed home, for sure.

    I will get to work from home sometimes with my new job, but it's going to be very weird. I need to stay disciplined.

    I'm there with you on that but cats rather than dogs and one large Boyo.

    At the same time, I have this feeling it's time for change...

    A job jump is really the only way to get a good raise anymore. If that's what you're alluding to.

    No, honestly, I make more money than I ever expected to and have lucked out on benefits, pension, and so forth. I am thinking more like "what can I do 20 hours a week to give me some structure and some pocket change while not pissing me off?" Obviously, after the early retirement.

    Thoughts on people working from home:
    How awful would it be to a hog processor....
    Blood trough in the bathroom....
    Overhead carcass rail in the living room(21f)....
    Smoker in the garage....
    Where's the TV

    LOL.

    I am thankful in hind site, that my company had geared up years ago to support an agile workforce and work from home given the events of last year. Agile I could probably handle better. To me, my home is my sanctuary. Having the place to unwind without the intrusion of the company into my personal life.

    I am grateful for my job. I did work at home for about 7 months, but decided that I get much more done while in the office, so I decided to go back in November. I wasn't forced, but my job requires I hit targets and I feel I'm more productive when I'm in the office. Some people can do just as well or even better in a WFH environment, but unfortunately, I'm not one of them...had to be honest with myself. No complaints from me, it is what it is.
