Although, a few months later, the bosses were quite surprised when I opted out of staying in the zone controlled HVAC of the office
The day that the news came that we’d have to leave the zone controlled HVAC of the office was when I finally got the picture. At first, I was hoping that the virus was not going to be as serious or as contagious as the reports I was hearing. But when the company shut down our offices and sent us home to work in our own air conditioning, I knew this pandemic was for real. I also realized soon after that it was going to take a lot more than I thought to deal with it. What I had hoped would only be working inside the air conditioning of my house for a month or so turned into a year and then some. That was the case for many, many people who found themselves suddenly working remotely from home. For me, the transition was not the easiest. I did my best to have a good attitude but I missed my office, my desk, my colleagues and that quality heating and air. But the longer I kept working at working at home, the more I realized that there were some real positives. I could sort of supervise the kids as they went to school online. And then, I was able to have more freedom to my work schedule which really helped me be my best. By the fall, I really was doing great with my work and the bosses were never happier. Although, a few months later, the bosses were quite surprised when I opted out of staying in the zone controlled HVAC of the office. Instead, I had a ductless heat pump put in my new home office and I chose to stay at home.
