Snow Day

 

Once upon a time, a snow day was a thing to be cherished. Squeals of delight from children who got a free pass from school and a good excuse for their parents to catch up on some much-needed sleep. But the times, they are a-changin’.

Technology, the very tool that gave us the freedom to work remotely, has trapped us. Snow day, schmow day. The work must go on.

This last snow day left me – and pretty much every other working parent I know – completely stressed out with the task of trying to spend some quality time with the kids (and by quality time, I mean refereeing to make sure no one lost an eye) while putting in a full day of work from home. That included hiding in a bathroom to make a conference call without the booming sounds of the WiiU battle that was taking place in my living room.
