“Working from home is easy” I say, as I pull my noise-cancelling headphones even more snug against my ears to drown out the unescapable sounds of kids fighting, dogs barking, and Disney+ movies playing on full volume while UPS rings the doorbell to deliver a package.
Sometimes there’s not enough walls in a house to provide the clarity conducive to meaningful work.

We’re all in this together, so let’s build this home office while we’re still productive.
