Mental Health Day

It seemed like a good idea at the time...and it still feels like a good idea.

I took a mental health day today. Resting, reading, and warming (in bed with an extra blanket). I almost did that last Thursday, but argued my way into going to work. (I then thought for about five seconds of maybe calling out Friday but didn't because that's cliché!)

Needed to remind myself I don't make a habit of this. I've done a good job of reporting to work at lots of jobs. I'll report to work tomorrow. Hear that, body? Don't get sick!
