I've been following the Adam @ home comic in the daily newspaper, often thinking about how great it would be to be a work-at-home dad, like Adam. Having been sick this week with a viral infection that the doctor told me was pretty contagious, I've spent the past 4 days working from home.

It's certainly been nice to see my wife and son whenever I needed a break from work, (it certainly beats a phone call) but I actually miss being in the office. Sure, I've been able to call people and conference in to meetings when required, but it's just different. Maybe it's because I'm working harder while at home in order to "prove" that I'm not slacking off. If I was in the office, I could wander around, hang out near the coffee machine, goof off, take a walk and do some shopping and nobody would question it. But "working from home" still has the stigma that the person is actually not getting anything done.

No, that's not it. I think I miss the social aspect of chatting with the people I work with. We do, after all, have a comfortable, friendly work environment.

Never thought I'd catch myself saying this but I'm looking forward to being back in the office soon . . .
