Whimsy Wins out over Reason

Those of you who commented on last night's post with a responsible "Jess, you absolutely need to go to work tomorrow -- faking sick for a day off is bad" were very logical; however, Jess is resilient to logic. Thus, you guessed it, I went with those folks who said, "Go ahead, take the day off, woo-hoo!" Like you really thought I'd go with the "be a good worker" bologna?

So, yup Jerry, I cancelled classes today and I am currently doing the first load of laundry, and I plan on the following list of "to-do" for the rest of my "sick" day:
  • finish laundry
  • finish reading the papers I brought home with me (and to my credit, I did work on them for 2 hours last night)
  • pick up around the house
  • play with Scooter (his little Beagle-self is very happy that I'm home for the day)
  • do my returns/exchanges at the mall
  • find a v-day gift for hubby
  • do my scheduled run

That should keep me busy!

Have a good Valentine's Day homies! Give your luh-vers an extra squeeze today!

Sounds like a great day to play hookie. I'm sure your students will be fine with it, too.

Well, I'm really not missing work. I love that line from
"Office Space"
Enjoy Valntine's Day, sometimes you need a sick day.

Everyone needs a day off every now and then. Have fun!

I am all for the mental health day. You know when you need a break--and you'll probably return to work as a much better teacher because you'll be rested and caught up (at least that is what I tell myself when I take a "sick day"). Hope it was fun!
