Again, one of the non-perks of working from home is that you don't get snow days. In fact, it's hard to even take a sick day (it's not like you're going to get anyone at the office sick, you know?) unless you really feel like crap.
Thus far, my non-snow day has sucked.
- Woke up and looked outside to see the world covered in snow. No big surprise. However, my fear of how I was going to let the dog out escalated when I could open either of our screen doors more than an inch.
- Woke the hubby up so he could advise me on the best method for doing so. He tried to help me put some boots on, but that didn't work. They were supposed to go over my shoes, but kept getting stuck.
- Hubby managed to open the door about a foot. I held on to the pupper's leash and let her wander a few steps. When she realized she wasn't going any further, she got the hint and took a piss. However, she was then COVERED in snow (since the drifts are twice as tall as her... at MINIMUM), which was not so fun to deal with.
- That's when hubby managed to fall down the basement stairs. This is the 3rd time it's happened since we moved into this house. Those stairs are scary steep, we have NO railings, and the floor was starting to get wet from the snow that was falling in from having the door open. Not cool.
- Hubby checked his email. Of course, HE has a snow day. Ugh. We were supposed to both be working and miserable! Instead, I am now working while he sleeps. -le sigh-
To help, I did make some popcorn (and used REAL butter on it for the first time in ages... soooo good). But really, that only helps so much. Reading on Facebook about everyone's snow days and not being at work just makes me wish we had a sympathy snow day or something. But, alas, that's what I get for "being able to work in my pajamas all the time!" (The next person to say that will likely come to regret that decision.)
Here's to a long day that just keeps dragging on...
