from where I sit

For the past week I have been working from home. Now I think both the company and I benefit from this.

I benefit because I have the flexibility to take care of some things without having to worry about driving 45 minutes to the office, which is really only 25 miles away, and they benefit because I believe they get a more productive employee.

Now don’t get me wrong I am very productive at the office, many of you have probably seen pictures of my cube at The Judgmental Corner. I have two monitors, something that we didn’t realize was so amazing until we had them. It’s been about 4 years of using them for my department.

Having these 2 monitors has allowed me to pretty much go paperless in my day to day activities which is all good in the long run. I keep my Order Management System open on one screen and my email on the other and work between the 2.

Now don’t get me wrong I do take a few me moments while at the office to visit and help out other coworkers with things away from my desk, I am not glued to my chair. When I am home there is no one to interact with save for the Office Communicator where I can chat with my teammates.

The downside to working remotely, so far the only one I can think of is that I don’t have 2 monitors. I have yet to decide if the Doggies offering to help me is an advantage or disadvantage.


The last few times I worked form home I sat at the kitchen counter and worked there. This time around I have decided to sit in the gameroom area we created back around Christmas. There is natural light, no TV to distract me, and the loveseat is a lot more comfortable to sit on than the barstool. Now if only I could find something to elevate the work computer, or just sit with it on my lap.

That’s about it for now. Still waiting for the bowling stats to be updated.



An update

Just a quick update to say I am still out here. Been dealing with some Family issues so my normal jovial posts may be waylaid for a bit.

I will continue to post as I can, my bowling updates will come every week, but I can’t guarantee anything more of substance for a bit.

Please bear with me while I take this short stint away.
