I’m here!  I’m the “new” person of the group so I got stuck holding down the fort.  There’s basically no one here, but I have to stay until 2pm.  Then leaving for my parents’ (3+ hours away) at 4pm.  It’s going to be a long day.

Yup.. I’m here.. along with about 3 other people.  I’ll be here for the whole day unless they decide to let us go early. I bought my IPOD to listen to!

I’m here too! I work with fam & all of our competition is closed today, and closed yesterday too. So we’re open! 🙂 Looks like we’ll get all the business!

@Ottawa: I’m mostly referring to the trek up to my parents’ afterwards.  I don’t really mind being at work so much.

I ran seven miles last night (!) so I’m covered on the workout front for the next two days ;o)

I’m going in now! I have to work until noon, then I’m going to the gym to try to get my a$$ back on track with working out regularly – so no breaks on the holidays! There will be nothing for me to do, so I’ll be taking some magazines and a coffee in with me today 😉 Merry Christmas Eve, Bees!!

I’m here too!  My parking lot was crazy empty.  I could of parked IN my office and I don’t think anyone would of noticed.  I’m pretty much not productive at all, but no one can say I wasn’t here.  I’m hoping no one asks me to get up, or that a client doesn’t just show up because we need to be wearing professional attire and I’m in crappy jeans, a big old comfy sweater and ugg. 

Hotchildinthecity- I’ll be headed up the same time.  Pray there’s no traffic on the thruway for me! 

Happy Holidays everyone!!

@Ottawa: I don’t think it’s supposed to storm here [fingers crossed]  I wish we could just take the train but we have tons of gifts and stuff coming up and back so we have to drive :o(  Getting out of the city is the worst part and then hopefully it will be easier after that. 

And thanks for the congrats!  I was really tired and wanted to quit about 203850938 times, but I did it ;o)

Im working today!  They make today “bring your kid to work day” so there are little ones running around everywhere.  Im the cool lady at the office because I know where Santa is!  AKA I have the NORAD Santa Tracker up on one of my 4 monitors and all the kids crowd around to see.  Love it lol.  Only here for a bit though, can leave whenever

I was the first person here!  Might be the only person who shows up today!  But since I work for the government the office closes at noon, so not too terrible.

Hey, I’m here!

I work in a hospital, so this is not considered an administrative holiday. Research never rests;)

Rumor is that we might get out at 2 or 3, but I won’t know for sure until the managers on duty formally announce it.
