Had a long talk with the ladyfriend yesterday to get us on the same page.
There really isn't any change of our status; we've been broken up since January, and that hasn't changed. Getting back together isn't off the table in the future, and it's clear by talking to her that part of her still wants that, but for the moment, I'm going to stop pursuing her, and leaving it at friendship.
She sort of but not really acknowledged that she sent some mixed signals over the last couple months about her intentions, which really was my biggest point of consternation. That was the hardest part for me, not really knowing if that was a sign she wanted to try again, or not.
But, that's been cleared up now. If she wants to try and get something going again, it will be up to her to make that decision, and if I'm in place to want the same thing, we'll try again.
I wouldn't mind working from home one day a week. It would be a nice change of pace (and a bit more relaxing), but I do love working with others, getting dressed up, having in-person meetings.
I don't have the option to work from home in my job (manage ~30 people), but if I had the option, I'd love to take one day and work frm home.
I did it for around 4-5 months at one point. I pretty much had a free schedule, so I was waking up late, staying up late, working whenever I wanted, etc. It's definitely pretty cool at first, but after a while you start running into the stuff I mentioned above. You have to be a very disciplined person to work from home full time.
