If you really want to mess with the working man/woman and cause the ultimate confusion….give them a snow day. If you don’t count babysitting and working at the local fair…I have been working since I was 16. In 34 years of working for a paycheck….I have never once had an adult snow day…until today. I’m not sure how it happened and if it was on purpose or not but I had a snow day today. We were supposed to get 9-11 inches of snow which did not happen. Instead we received ice…lots of it. My road didn’t start to look passable until around 2ish so I’m glad I didn’t have to slip and slide to work.
I did work on some new price lists so that was a couple of hours that were work related. I didn’t feel like a slacker quite as much since I put in some time today. Plus there was that hour and ten minutes on the phone with the new optician in the southern office…so that’s like three hours of technical work. Why can’t I just enjoy the day off like everyone else? I guess it’s a guilt thing?
The dog run had a pretty big layer of ice on it this morning. I almost biffed it at the bottom of the stairs when I went to break off the ice and clean off the stairs. The poor beagle slid right off of those stairs this morning. It’s better for her now. I also defrosted my car so hopefully I won’t have too many issues on the way to work tomorrow.
I had correspondence with both of my new “cousins” today. I’m always hoping to learn something new, fingers crossed…maybe next time. I know I helped clarify things with my new maternal cousin. The ultimate plan is to share information so we all learn something new.
It was nice to have an extra day to relax a bit and more importantly…not to slip and slide to work. Tomorrow is half day Wednesday and then the week is almost over. I feel like if we can make it through this week…it’s all downhill to Spring….Zia
