Yuck that’s horrible!  I’m off today but I still have 3 days to work this week and I’m thinking it’s going to be empty.

Yes, that’s what I’m looking forward to this week as well.  It’s MTO week (mandatory time off) so about 80% of the office is out.  I chose to take my MTO in April for the wedding so I’ll be there all by my lonesome!  

On the upside, this IS the official week of 2 hour lunches and sneaking out early…  🙂

I know how you feel. My job involves calling people all over the country and NO ONE is answering their phones. Ehhh it is frustrating!

I’m in the same boat as you…not one call yet today! Wish I could be sleeping in with Fiance 🙁

Bah, I hear you! It snowed like 8 inches here, but the roads are plowed and I have 4WD, so can’t use the weather as an excuse, so here I am. There are maybe 5 other people here. It’s going to be a long day. :/

The only reason I’m no in work right now is because we have a SNOW DAY!!! I love snow days and so does my doggy. I hope the day goes by faster. At least you won’t have to do any “real” work today.

I had a snow day today! Nobody but essential staff is allowed to go in.

I just tried opening our front door, and the  snow stops the door from opening. haha.

Same here…..phone hasn’t rang once and no orders coming in!!!  BORING!!!  I think we should get off like the school kids do and not come back to work until after the new year….but of course still get paid:)

I’m also stuck at work doing nothing.  Just one email today and it took about 5 minutes to respond.  We were supposed to get a winter storm and it just went up the east coast and left us with a dusting of snow and 40 mph winds.  Too bad my boss is one of the only people here–I’ll have to be sneaky about spending all day on WB, designing my invitations, and working on my registry!

I’m working from home today because of the snow. Its a very slow week for us to start with though.
