Home for the Day

So what are the two words every kid loves to hear in the winter? C'mon, you cam say it with me...SNOW DAY!!!!! Yeah!

Yes, we are out of work today because of the snow. The rule is if the school district you live in closes because of snow then you don't have to come to work. We got a double whammy in our favor because the district that our office is in closed as well. Funny thing is most of the closings are not because of the snow. We only got 6 inches. But all the ice got on the power lines and there are like 35,000 people with no power right now. Cable TV went out last night around 11:30 and is still not back yet. Luckily we had power this morning so we could hear the closings on the radio.

So Deb and I slept in until 10. I swear one of the best feelings in the world is to be naked and curled around your lover in a warm bed with flannel sheets on a Snow Day. The cats even got on the bed to make it even warmer.

Deb got her tax refund yesterday and we both got paid so we are temporarily rich. I think we are going to go shopping in awhile. I love being lazy on days like today.

Peace,

Wander

About having a day off mainly. I went in this morning and nearly died of suffocation three times before lunch. Ventilate a building? Nope, costs too much.

Personally, I'm hoping we don't get any snow until after Feb. 15. That's an unscheduled day and I was planning to go home and get stuff.

Re:
You know Evangelinaarion from my friends list? She goes to ECU too. All her classes were cancelled today. Now you can hate her too. It's actually been kinda boring today sincethe cable is out too. This is the first time I've been online from home on a week day in years.

I know of her. Our paths haven't crossed yet. If I were still taking classes on campus (more than just once a month) I would be jealous. Instead I will be tired.

Re:

Re:
I was just joking about the hating you thing. I've got the best of both worlds I guess. Since I'm on salary, I get paid whether I'm at the office or not. Paid vacations are a good thing. Kinda funny when you think all the screwing around in NC I did over Christmas I was getting paid for.

Re:
Beleive me. Stay in college for as long as you can. It's much nicer than working a real job. Does you schedule not allow for a part time job?

We never get those anymore...I can't remember the last time we had a snow day. Closest was when we closed early during a snow storm last year. Today it took me an hour and a quarter to get home, even though I'm sure it's not nearly as bad as it is for you guys up here. *sigh*
