I thought I would love fully remote but I definitely feel like I need to be in the office at least 1-2 times a week
If I recall correctly there was some work done a few years ago on the topic of a sort of "spacial association" that takes place in your mind. I believe the researchers who looked at this concluded there were different "mental modalities" depending on the associated activity of a space. Certainly if our home environments have differing associations it could go either way.

Never felt the daily grind as in this times. Wake up, turn up the pc, lunch, more pc, turn off the pc, Go to bed.

What I'd prefer most is certainty about the state of things going forwards. I feel like I probably should build up a good home office, then I could be quite comfortable working from home, but I haven't done that yet, so I'm not that comfortable.

A little, I'd like to be in the office at least one day a week just for a break in routine.
As the ancient Greeks would have it, "Nothing in Excess". Too much WFH has its trade-offs, some of them can be bad. Not everyone is cut for that.
We only quarantined for 1 month in my state. I was burned out immediately. My gym was also closed which was hell. My saving grace was the occasional call to go into the office to do something. So yeah I feel you man.
I'm there for sure. Also, I lost my monitor, keyboard etc overnight, so not ideal.
