In the past, I disliked working from home -- still do to some extent. I mean, I "hate people", but for some stupid reason I like being around them, haha. But, when I worked from home in the past no one else was home but me. So, I'd be depressed all day waiting for my wife to come home like a puppy waiting for its owner...it was sad, lol.
In the present, I have two kids and they make working from home more enjoyable, but less productive. Also having a nice basement with my AV gear in it helps my mood. Unfortunately, that too lowers my productivity; I have to put on music I can ignore or I get more wrapped up in that than my work. So, working from home these days is better, but less productive in some ways (more in others...I don't have co-workers bugging me at least).
Just had my first big Skype meeting (usually don't bother with them, I'll call in, keep myself off Skype). I put my daughters in front of the camera and let them amuse my co-workers before the meeting started. Of course, not much useful got done when the meeting started, either...but, it was a nice break from the monotony of being "alone in a room".
Meh, I'll never understand my own social proclivities. Hate people, can't be without them, still hate most of them anyway...but maybe I really don't hate them, ugh...I'm a messed up individual.
