Bummer - NOT!

I just received a call from work telling me all non-essential personnel need not report to work today.   Hmmm, I thought I was pretty essential but anyway.   There is a water main break and our complex has no water!  My boss said treat like a snow day.   YeHa!  I will be forced to stitch all day and perhaps finish up my Live Simply little sampler.....oooohhhh, maybe I can do the finishing on iStitch Halloween!  Oh, the possibilities!  Here's the irony............I work for the water company who's main is broken.  So I am the provider as well as the customer.   hmmmm, does that mean I complain to myself?   Whatever.....it is a free day, a pleasant surprise, time to get out my latest Netflix and watch with another cup of java and needle and thread in hand.   I see a nap in my afternoon...........

Take good advantage of this 'snow day' and make the 'sacrifice' of stitching. Enjoy your day.

In this case, I'd love to be non-essential. Hope you enjoyed your movie, stitching and nap! I am so jealous. It is kind of ironic that you work for the water company and had water main issues...
