Sick Day

12:27 PM Edit This 3 Comments »
I took the day off yesterday. I slept in until 9. It was quite luxurious. Then M and I went to the lake and spent the day floating from one end of the lake to the other, paddling back to land for a quick snack and then starting all over again. The circle of beach life. It was amazing. It was restorative, and it was exactly what I've been needing. A break. The day was rounded out by watching a movie. I ALMOST made it to the end. I tend to watch movies in 20 minute segments that often have to be restarted because I forget what happened before I sit down to watch the next 20 minutes five days later. I just can't sit still that long. Either that or the cinematic quality of movies has gone way, way down. They don't hold my attention. I crawled into bed at the lovely hour of 10 p.m. and slept until morning. It was a great day.

And then I felt guilty because I called in sick. I might be going to hell.

Don't feel guilty! Those are what my mother used to call "mental health days."

It's called a mental health day. You need those too and count just as much as the days when you can't get out of bed b/c your head hurts or stomach or whatever the hell... Sounds like a blast and I am jealous!!
