    Should I feel guilty?

    The snow here is bad enough that last night they canceled school for today, even at the area colleges.
    My street has still not been plowed, and it's 11 a.m. Normally they would have made several passes by 8 or 9. So I emailed my boss and said I can't get there. It's only 5 miles from my house, but there's no way my minivan will make it through 10" of this stuff. He emailed me back and said he had no trouble on the road (he's a half-hour north of here, and they also had about a foot of snow) until he got to our town.

    So today I've stayed in my nightie until now - gonna' go take a shower, get dressed, make a big pot of chili for the family (DS's # 4, 6, and 9 are out plowing/shoveling with their uncle's service), throw in a load or two of laundry, and SEW!!!

    And I'm wondering...

    Should I feel bad that I feel so good? My boss is there at the office, and there is almost no one else there... my partner didn't make it in, and neither did the receptionist... Should I feel guilty?

    Nah.

      Nope - you should not feel guilty at all. My husband's company is doing a late start at 11 and my school district closed today, but not the offices. We got the driveway shoveled, but have yet to see a plow. I can tell neighbors have made it out of the neighborhood.

      My 1pm meeting got cancelled, so I just emailed that I was taking a vacation day. I think I need a nap after that shoveling!

      A bad day in the sewing room is better than a good day at the office.

          No - don't feel guilty. I spent 3 1/2 hours one time (risking life and limb) to get to work and then they wanted us to go home 1/2 hour later - I was still shaking. Never forgot that - Stay home, make that chili, light a candle and quilt! Know that you will work double time when you make it back there.

              Good for you for not feeling guilty! No one should risk their life for a job.

                  Nope. no guilt here, although I would feel bad for my co-workers that were carrying the whole shebang alone. If it stays this bad here, i will walk into work tonight. I do that about once a winter when the roads are bad. it's about 1/4 mile and will take me 15/20 minutes.

                    Be careful, stay warm, and have some hot chocolate when you get there! Hope your boss/clients appreciate you.

                        Don't feel guilty at all! This is a rare chance to be home from work without being sick....normally when we stay home from work it's because someone is ill. Enjoy your time to get caught up on whatever you need to...cleaning, reading, sewing, sleeping.

                            Oh, I have a very nice - and understanding - boss! I am very blessed to be working for him. He has never raised his voice once in the ten years I've worked for him, and when I had a hard time coming back to work after cancer surgery, he was just as supportive as could be. Really a good guy. That said, I HAD A GREAT DAY, AND I DON'T FEEL GUILTY!!
