I recently moved my (home) office and my wife Elisa and I moved our family (five kids, two dogs) to Elisa's home town in rural Pennsylvania.
But I kept my office in downtown Chicago, where my colleagues work full time.
I now commute to Chicago, staying in Chicago for a full work week every other week, or more often, as needed.
Our home has a big pond in the back, full of fish and frogs. We love to feed them in the evening.
