    I normally enjoy my job. Great company, great benefits and great co workers but there are occasions where I'd rather stay home.........today is one of those days.

    3 degrees with 17 below wind chill here in SE Iowa and I'll be working outside most of the day.

    Truck scale down probably needs a new load cell.

    Friday looks like snow for our area but I'll be inside at FedEx so that's ok but today is going to suck.

    Stay warm folks.

    And fortunately I work from home, about 15 feet from my guitars. :D Close enough to walk to whenever I need a break (i.e., a fix), but not close enough to reach over and grab one when I get the urge (which is most of the time.) Hmm... I feel a break coming up.

    Personnally, i hate my job, hate my employer, the benefits suck, and i would rather stay home too. On the bright side i have been looking for other jobs, so have that going for me. Hopefully when i get a new job they will approve time off to go to Experience in May, and mexico in July

    I've been working from home all week, expecting a NGD delivery. So far it's been a snow go:(

    I like retirement.
    I get to look at when the deep freeze is coming and choose to go somewhere warm, or hibernate by the fireplace. I think this round, I’ll have a big dinner and hibernate.
    Sorry Sergio, no new guitar next week.

    +1 on this concept... I am adjusting to the retired life just fine. Every time I hear someone having to work in the cold (or heat, or any other bad scenario) I feel more blessed to have finally reached the "work when I wanna" phase of life. Huge level of respect to all who are still out there doing what's needed to get food on the table, a roof over the head, and a PRS in the stand.

    Oh and we have the reverse temperature on the Gulf Coast today... 71. Brutal.

    I do love the work that I am doing right now. During my school years I made a wrong decision and pursued an education as electrician while I should have chosen for mechanics. Dropped out of school and started working as a lorry driver. After my emigration to Sweden I got the opportunity to work as a mechanic/constructer. Working on forestry machinery/heavy equipment and working with metal like milling, cutting and welding. Work feels like a hobby and get paid for doing it as well. All the tools you will ever need at my disposal. Location is 600m from my house as a bonus so technically I can walk to get to work.

    I'm in this boat, too. Oddly, I don't take the time to play, which I should. The Mrs being around all the time is cramping my style!

    I hate my employer, too. Unfortunately, I’m self-employed. :(

    He just did! Not only do I hate him, my wife agrees!
