In my immediate family we have 1½ fully-functioning adults and only one driver (me). The rest are elderly or medically disabled. Three days out of five we have appointments with various doctors. This has become progressively more and more of a load. We were supposed to be back in the office a little over six months ago. The best I've managed is 4 consecutive days in the building Cry | :(( .

Fortunately my boss is understanding, and as long as I'm productive he doesn't mind. Truthfully I prefer working from home, because there are far fewer interruptions. At that, the breaks I do take don't tend to disrupt my train of thought. Those at work require me to switch from product A to product B, subsystem B.7, from a build 4 years old. It's ridiculously hard to keep context in your head working like that, especially when it happens over and over again throughout the day.
