I'm not. I'm saying working from home will be less productive even with nannies. Don't see how I'm contradicting myself. Your mind will always be occupied by what's happening in the next room over. Kudos to the parents that don't have ticking alarms at the back of their minds even when their baby is next door

So you’ve taken home the habit of having some naughty salt to perk up your work day?

I don’t feel this way at all.

Crippling depression and anxiety. Going somewhere helped me get out of bed and get ready. People demanded so much from me but at least there was a human element. Now I just feel like no one cares.

Need to move to the burbs w/fiancee, but where? Staying in BK is not an option, though we will eventually work in the city 1-2 days/week (someday?). Won't do long island, need a 2 car garage w/space to work on cars and also space for a woodshop whether it's in basement or elsewhere. Planning on having kids and because we'll work from home a lot still need office space. I grew up in burbs and it wasn't so bad because I lived walking distance to train station into the city & nice downtown. 800k!
