Snow day, schmoe day
Oh wait. None of that stuff really happened. Let me start over.
Well, it snowed a lot, so I checked my e-mail first thing and updated The Saratogian website with some info about flight cancellations at Albany Airport.
Then I realized the printer for Spirit of Saratoga magazine was waiting for my approval of the pages to put the issue on the press, so needed to get into the files ASAP. Bonus, though — I was able to work via laptop beside my cozy woodstove for about an hour before the driveway was plowed.
Of course, the kids didn't have school, and my husband is off, too, so as they all feasted on pancakes, I bundled up, slid down the driveway (in my car, not the fun way) and made my way to the office so I could attend a meeting and make a deadline.
OK, OK, I know I sound a little bitter. I am happy that my darlings have such a wonderful opportunity to relax and play today.
Yeah, the sarcasm just oozes out of that sentence, doesn't it?. It's hard to mask the envy.
My husband tried to soften the blow with promises of a lovely meal upon my return home. Thanks, honey. I'm definitely looking forward to it.
