    Question sounds natural?

    Is it correct to say

    "I was barely at my desk in the past hours. I was just too busy. "

    Thanks a lot!

    Question Re: sounds natural?

    Thanks for being patient!

    It's like when a person asks you whether his telephone rang when he was away from the desk. And I want to say that I was busy, and didn't even sit before my desk in the past few hours, thus don't know whether his telephone has rung or not.

    Comments, please. Thanks!
