I took the day off the last Thursday. It was already my day off from work but, since I was feeling a little under the weather, I decided to take the day off from my regular adult life. Not a single dish was washed, no food was cooked, no laundry folded and no stitch knit. I sat on the couch and watched episode after episode of NCIS. Kenneth, bless him, brought me tea and snacks and tucked the quilt around me. It was absolutely glorious and, for the first time, it was entirely guilt free. I was able to spend all day lazing selfishly on the couch without beating myself up about it! Hallelujah. It was a perfectly lovely day and on Friday, I went to the store, prepped meals, and tidied up feeling restored to a better sense of self.
Here's to more "sick" days!
