Home Office

Starting on Tuesday, I'll be working from home.

I'm trading in a world of cubicles, beige walls, traffic jams and annoying coworkers for a world of spacious rooms with views, colorful décors, 10-yard commutes and lapcats.

I’m not sure what I’m most excited about: sleeping in or working in my boxers. :think:

Anyone else out there working from home?

    Mr. RK does when he can. He says he does get more work done since he doesn't have interruptions from others.

    I gave up my art room so he could have a home office... :x

    I'm working from home, too. I love my office. After seven years of full-time employment I have to say that it is better for my translations that I am working from home not being interrupted by calls or last-minute mini projects. I can use my creative phases better than in an office schedule corset. But sometimes I miss the interaction with workmates. The kitty enjoys me being home though :) Best of luck for you!

    I get the feeling for the first month or so, my boss will call me a bunch to "check in" with me. :fp:

    Thanks for the well-wishes!

    That was my thought! Afro needs to keep her work at the office and not bring it home. :lol:

    Worked from home Jan - March this year. Lunchtime showers were the best.

    Back to the life of annoying co-workers.

    I work from home 3 days a week. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It's a pretty sweet setup. There's nothing better than just rolling out of bed on Monday morning and turning my computer on. I think I would go a little crazy if I was home all day, everyday. Even with my setup now, there are times that I go sit at Starbuck's or some place like that to work for a few hours.

    I've worked from home for the last 5 years now. It's fantastic!
    Working from home, making my own schedule, nobody bugging me...awesome.
    I do spend a lot of time on the road for work, but home is where my office is.

    There are days when I'm not traveling I too will go to a coffee shop and work. Sometimes you just gotta change the scenery and get out of the house to be productive.

    My cat has gotten spoiled and she gets mad when I leave for multiple days for work. Get home and she's all pissed off. :lol:

    The one downside (and pretty much only downside, really) is that I have to keep regular business hours and work from my home office -- those were the conditions my employer set to allow me to work from home. So unfortunately I won't be able to roll into the "office" at noon or work from coffee shops ... but all the other perks make it worth it!

    Last day in the office. Showed up without my badge like I don't give a f---. Leaving in less than 8 hours. Already too long of a day.

    you can't go to starbucks or something? do you have a dedicated office home office phone, or are you using your cell.

    if it's the cell, who gives a fuck...if it's the home office line...forward it to the cell and see above
