The silver lining to this pandemic is working from home full-time. Now I can spread out my "weekend" work during the week. I can run a load of laundry on a weekday morning and fold during lunch (instead of doing 4 loads on the weekend!), have lunch with my kids every day (so we get quality conversations in during the week!), and do other small projects during the time I would have otherwise spent commuting to my office.

I am dreading the idea of having to return nearly full-time to the office. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can negotiate 2-3 days/week working from home. I finally feel like I'm balancing work and family decently!
