Y'all, I'm sooooo bored!! Yesterday morning a huge storm with 100 mph winds blew through Memphis. It came through around 7 am, and I left for work around 7:30. I live in a suburb outside of Memphis, and while it hit us pretty hard, I had no idea the damage I would see when I drove into Memphis. Half of the city is without power, and trees and power lines are down everywhere. The area around my office was hit pretty bad, and when I got to work (finally--it took a while with all the stop lights out), other people in management had already decided to tell people to go home and that we would be closed for the day. We knew there was little chance of getting power back that day. Well, here it is 2 business days later, and we're all still sitting at home. I have SOOO much work to do--I'm the system manager and our computers have been off for a day and a half now. Our phone system is old and we decided after a consultation a year ago that it was too costly to replace, but we were given a warning that if it was "down"--without power--for more than a few hours it may not come back up. Our core business is making telephone calls (we have a call center)--so I sure hope our phones come back up!! This week being off is going to get me really behind in all of my work, and I really will need to work this weekend, but DH and I have been planning a trip to my dad's for the weekend. We have to go--it's been months since we've seen him, and it's hard for him to get a weekend off. URG!!
I'm so frustrated and bored here at the house. DH was off with me yesterday, but his office got power today so they are back at work. My house is clean, the laundry is done, the yard doesn't need any work, and I don't want to go shopping (well, it would be nice, but I'd rather not spend the money). So here I sit. Luckily my internet is up. I feel so lazy with nothing to do. DH will be home soon!
Hope everyone else is doing well!
