I'll be gone from tomorrow until Sunday night. We are celebrating my dad's 80th birthday this weekend! Should be a great party. The entire community has been invited to a reception, so we'll see who shows up!
Thanks for the dittoable!!

Have fun at your dad's party...sounds like a wonderful reception for a wonderful man.

Good morning, DDA!

We didn't get as much snow here in Fredericksburg as they had predicted, thank goodness. The nightmare stories of people trying to get home from Washington, DC are enough to make me never drive up there. I am hoping Tammi did not have to deal with any of it! There was a woman on her cell phone with a local TV station this morning who had left her government job yesterday afternoon at 4:30 and at 6:30 this morning she was still on one of the major highways around DC. She had no idea when she would get home. I cannot even imagine.

Deb - congrats on the Biggest Loser win... can't wait to hear what you won!

Glynis - have a wonderful time celebrating your Dad's birthday!!

Good morning everyone.

Still job hunting here. It's getting very depressing as I thought I would have gotten something by now. I have an interview Friday with a local preschool. Hours would be great as they follow my kids school schedule. I guess we'll see.

Kids got their report cards & everyone did great. Can't believe half the school year is over already.

Have a great day DDA.

I have been job hunting as well & it does get depressing. I have filled out my college apps though & now need to meet with a advisor, If nothing else I will get some schooling that will hopefully help me later on the job front!

Good luck to you!

Janet-thanks for the new thread!

Janet & Anne Marie- & Good luck on the job hunt!

Elin-Hope Bob has a better day today. Hope everything comes out OK with buttons. Glad to hear your snow isn't too bad but that poor woman!

Glynis-belated birthday wishes for you and Happy Birthday to your Dad!

Vicki-you go girl!!! Yeah for signing up for the full next Jan! I'm hoping to do the half with my friend Mary K. I'll have to see how my feet hold up. I don't have a treadmill and no where to put one and just too crazy to walk outside here with all the snow this year. I could join the gym at work but I'm not confident enough to use the gym with my coworkers (yet). I've been doing the wii fit everyday so at least I'm moving some and as soon as the snow/ice goes away I'll get outside-I'm not afraid of the cold but am afraid of the ice. I've slip a few times walking into work and that really hurts my feet.

Today our office was a 2 hour delay but I decided that I wouldn't go through the commute I did last week only to find the parking lot unplowed so I'm working from home. I guess I better get working!

Add me to the job hunt. I've got 6 apps out there right now. Finding a job is half the battle, liking it the other half

I'm glad that you can work from home. We didn't get any snow. We expected 2-4 and got nothing I'm not complaining, but wish the forcasters could get it right once in a while

I worked yesterday and am still at work today. The kids spent the night with their dad, and the county put those working up in a hotel for the night. Thanks goodness as it would have taken me 3+ hours to get home. The bulk of it started just as we were getting off.

We are closed today due to the weather. We had about a foot of snow on top of what we already had before. I hope that the road to our office is cleared as it still had snow on it from the last storm.

Yesterday I went into work early so that I could leave early as I knew it was going to get bad around rush hour. I didn't want to have a many hour commute, I know several people who had super long commutes due to the weather.

I am also thinking about signing up for the 2012 half marathon, although I am not sure as I am intrigued by the Marathon relay, but those details have not been released yet.

I spent my morning shoveling. I need to do some stuff for my job yet today. I also need to find out if my volunteers are still meeting tonight because if they are I might need to go to that meeting. They are calling for the possibility of more snow tomorrow, Saturday and Tuesday and Wednesday I am done with this nuisance snow.

Elin- I hope Bob continues to improve and that Button has no issues due to his pottery eating.

Good luck to those of you searching for a job.

Hugs to all of you.

Good luck to you too!

Well...my boss told me last week I could work from home and didn't have a problem with it when I told him I was planning on it last night and didn't have a problem at 10am this morning but then he sent our department (me & 2 others) an email at 1:30 'to communicate expectations, especially in light of the new strategic plan and staff being more “proactive, accountable and nimble”'. This email was cc'd to his boss so someone must have complained.

Last week they had a 10am opening and the parking lot wasn't plowed. I cannot risk hurting my feet by slipping in that mess. I heard from a friend that this week they did a good job on the parking lot but last week I was told by the person in charge of the building that it was done good enough.

Now I don't know if I should just do a timesheet for a vacation day today or not. I did work but I may have a hard time using all my time this year anyways. I have about 35 days to use before 11/4/11. I can carry 5 forward. I really can't take vacation from say mid September til late November so maybe I should just put in for a day and be done with it.

They let someone go yesterday so now the entire building is wondering who is next. It used to be such a great place to work. And while revenue is down a bit things never really got that bad so I just don't understand this new atmosphere.

Glad you didn't have deal with the traffic mess.

It will be interesting to see what the plans are for the relay. Mary K really wants the Donald medal so we'll probably stick with that for 2012.
