    I love snow days for that reason: a guilt free break! Lying around the house, watching Netflix, catching up on reading…whatever you need. Looks like you took full advantage 🙂

      I wish I had used my time productively but at least I got a break to be lazy….

    Much as I hate snow, I loved the 2 snow days last week for the same reason – it was a break from everything including the alarm clock!!!
    It is so funny how many people are out playing in the snow in that picture – I guess kids here get kind of immune to the snow and don’t always feel the need to get out in it.

      We get it so infrequently it’s usually a treat!

    We are so used to snow that there are hardly ever snow days unless it has been snowing overnight and into the next morning. 2 hours delays happen.

    I never get snow days from work since I work from home, but I can’t really complain about that 😀

      I’m always impressed with your snow and how you guys rarely let it slow you down. At least you are used to it! Snow like yours shuts us down!!

    I always got into trouble when I got burnout from a job. I’d just pack on the pounds. Taking time off is so important. It’s even better when you can have a moment to yourself on your day off. We get our snow tomorrow night. Good luck on the job hunt!

      Yep, that’s me right now!
