this experience is a good argument for mancaves and shesheds. I feel very lucky not to be crammed into a 2br apartment with a spouse and small children.

Luckily, my house is fairly large with only 2 people, and there are no quarantine rules where I live. But have to work from home sometimes.

I dunno...

I just had two weeks off with my wife. Now we didn't stay "cooped up" per se. We went on walks (not strolls, but not quite power walks) about every other day, and we had stuff to do at home - various projects that we hadn't had time for until suddenly we did.

When I got back to work this past Monday, I had one coworker (correctly) characterize my vacation as a "taste of retirement." And I, for one, thought it tasted really good. But then, my wife has always been my best friend, so that may be the difference...

Your vacation sounds nice. A vacation would be different than both working from home though.

Indeed.

When we met, my wife and I were both in the Air Force, both working in the same building, but in (almost) completely separate organizations. Once we got married, we went to work together, went home together, and sometimes had lunch together. But we didn't work together.

Since then she became an RN, and when I retired I became an occupational therapist. But again, we never worked together. She has since retired from nursing and now works from home doing call center stuff from her home office (a converted bedroom). I'm still an OT, and there is little that an OT can do "from home" that's actually providing therapy interventions, so I really can't work from home.

On the other hand, we have discussed that possibility at length. We both agree that if we were both working from home, we'd do best by having completely separate work spaces. Definitely NOT both of us working from the dining room table!

There were other problems, but it didn’t help things with my ex that we lived in a loft.

Beforehand, we lived in a much smaller place, but I think it worked out better because we could use either side of the apartment as a “corner”.
