Snow Days

Today is an official snow day for Tom. His work told all non-vital employees to work from home and not to report to the office. Lots of fun I think, a day home with the family an added bonus to the weekend, a time to remember. However, there are a lot of adults who feel that snow days are a burden and a pain. This makes me wonder, WHY? When did snow days become such a pain? When we were kids we used to huddle around the television waiting for our school's name to scroll across the bottom of the screen, waiting in anticipation for that day off, that day of fun and freedom. But as adults we don't wait for that fun, why is that? Shouldn't we cherish the time with our families. Yeah, so you can't go out into town or do anything, but do we always need to be on the go, running here and there. I think sometimes we as a society need to take a step back and slow down, enjoy life instead of watching it pass us by at warp speed. So instead of worrying about all the work that might be waiting for you when you return to work, sit back, enjoy a good book, or play a game with your family and enjoy life!
