Working from Home Has Its Positives and Negatives
Well into Week 7 working from home has me wondering what it will be like once we are faced with being around our co-workers and colleagues once we do go back to the office.
It's hard to believe it's been nearly two months since I've seen my Fun 107 and WBSM co-workers in person. It's weird to even say it out loud. I mean, I have seen both Michael and Gazelle in person (six feet away, of course) a couple of times but otherwise, it's just every morning during our show via video conference. I find myself wondering what it will be like to be back in the studio together once this pandemic is over.
It's not like we get super dressed up for "work" but we certainly don't stroll into the Fun 107 studios at 5 a.m. in our pajamas. So let's just say, I've gotten really used to dressing comfortably. I am pretty sure I'm not alone when I say that my yoga pants, leggings and sweatshirts are now my staple work attire.
This was fun for the first three or four weeks. Now? I'm tired of being comfortable. I long for my jeans, tops, belts and sandals. And don't even get me started with needing all of my normal things like hair highlights, keratin and cuts. I miss the gym, my girlfriends, baseball – the list goes on and on.
One thing I am loving during all of this is my family and being home every day with my kids. I see a lot of funny memes and posts on social media about how annoying the kids can be while parents are safe at home during this pandemic, but I think when it comes right down to it, we all feel lucky and grateful our kiddos are home and safe with us.
