I love working from home. I like the fact that I can walk down to my "man cave" with my coffee and settle in for the day. I like the fact that I do not have to commute an hour and a half to the city. I like the fact that, on occasion, I can watch Netflix with lunch. I like the fact that I do not have a neighbour in the next stall coughing every few seconds. However . . . I hate the fact that my wife (on maternity leave) can ask me for a favour at any time, merely by opening the basement door. I hate the fact that I can hear everything, and I mean everything, that my wife and my youngest daughter are doing above me, although I love them both dearly. I hate the fact that I continually tell the duct cleaners that our ducts are just fine and that they should stop calling us. I hate the fact that my couch actually calls to me and dares me to take a nap. I hate the fact that my wife loves to play the piano, as I get distracted by any noise, even beautiful music. Hopefully, these thoughts brought a smile to your face. There is truth to them.
