Working from Home on a Snow Day: A Tutorial

4 Comments

If you are from the New Jersey area, you are well aware of the mess of a week we’ve had in terms of the weather. Yesterday’s ice storm was a particularly bad one. After attempting to go to work during the blizzard on Monday, I decided it was probably in my best interest to stay home yesterday, despite the fact that my office was still technically open.

Here is my guide to how to get the most out of a snow day…that you actual have to work through:

On days when your backyard looks like this, it's okay to stay home.

  1. So I guess Oliver really isn’t to work, huh? I don’t blame him. Also, this is pretty much what every day looks like for me, since I usually work from home. Except with a sewing machine. I approve of this tutorial.

    • Oliver mostly hung out in the hallway all day. Toby and Willow were much more interested in being my coworkers.

      The best part of working from home for me is the pajamas, honestly.
