Plenty of snow blanketed Virginia Beach this week. We woke up to a winter wonderland, and even a frozen lake this morning … and for 2 days I have attempted to work from home because there was NO WAY that I was getting out of my neighborhood without skidding all over the place.
I rarely work at home. Why? Because I am a master compartmentalizer (just created a new word, right?) … I try to keep the boundaries between work and family pretty clear. Keeps me sane. But the snow broke that down whether I liked it or not. And while I would have loved to just take the day off, it just wasn’t in the cards.
At one point in my morning I told Justin I had a 30 minute conference call and then I would do something for him. 45 minutes later as the call went on he paraded in front of me like Vanna White holding a sign that said ‘I Thought It Was Only 30 Minutes? When Will You Be Done??’ He was only HALF kidding 🙂
Hate when that happens. I like to try to be present with him when I’m home … and he was pretty good about understanding that though I’m home, and not dressed for work, I am actually attempting to work. But he would have preferred a snow buddy.
Ahh … life … and schools are closed again tomorrow. But I think I will have to inch my way out of the neighborhood. I hear the roads beyond are doing alright, once you get there. Wish me luck!
