2 Week Notice Pay
I told my boss I was resigning and she asked if i could give two weeks more. I said yes, came to work the next day and she had a note for me stating that it would not work out and that i was to finish out the day and then consider my resignation effective. Is she liable to pay me for the two weeks we agreed upon?

I doubt it. Your employment was at will, meaning you didn't need to give a reason for leaving -- and she didn't need a reason for letting you go. It would be different if you had a contract, but I very much doubt that the conversation asking you to stay on another two weeks would be considered as forming a contract for that time, if you didn't already have one.
I'm not a Vermont lawyer, and I don't know all the facts of your case. If you want to be sure of your rights in this, please talk to a qualified attorney in your area. One place to look for a lawyer is our website, http://attorneypages.com
