Want to know what is desperate?
A work-from-home breadwinner trying to work. The skeleton crew of this family today...Working. Solely.
I sit at my desk, looking out my ever coated window, and try to work; I struggle to keep my head afloat...above the smothering, fluffy, happy snow and the sounds of snow-day people all around me...sledding in the drive and blasting fun music on the hi-fi. TV watching children whose lives are on pause while I sit and dial the phone one more time and send one more email and field one more conference call. Praying the dog doesn't bark or the kid come romping in on a happy snow-day high.
Keep it down now.
And these are the days that working from home is not so desirable.
