How would you like your eggs...?

I have just finished eating scrambled eggs, bacon, toast with cheese whiz topped off with a tall glass of milk...It was okay, a bit greasy but that's how I feel this morning. You're probably thinking, gee she must have gotten up early today to have that for breakfast before going to work. Well see...I'm not at work, I called in sick today.

OOhhh....bad I know, especially if you're not physically sick per se...however!!....I'm claiming mental sickness today :) Last night was a rough night for me, I bickered and complained with Kristen the whole night, I was contrary, angry, sad, frustrated, anything miserable...that was it.

I'm at the breaking point, there are just so many things that I've wanted to do, meant to do, should be doing, and since returning from Nfld I've done NONE of it. I went to bed overwhelmed, thinking, thinking, thinking (I'm guilty of doing that too much sometimes) and realized I just have to take a day for me. To do cleaning (already have the bathroom scrubbed and a load of laundry and its 9:45am) to organize a few of the boxes in the living room/hallway (my brother is moving out tomorrow and in less than 2 months we move to the new house) and who knows what else is on my to do list.

So I ask myself should I feel guilty about staying home today? What do I say to all the little 'ol bittys tomorrow when I go in and they're all like, how do you feel today, what was wrong with you? Too be honest I don't even give a rats ass what they think or don't think. I don't need to justify when I know I need some time for me and when I need a break. I would like to think I know myself well enough to know what I need when I need it.

Anyway, enough of my rambling on, time for me to finish checking things off my to do list. Wish me luck and peace of mind :)

Well i'm the queen of needing a me day so I totally understand how you are feeling. :) You have to do things for yourself regardless of what the " little 'ol bittys" think or say. :)

Totally understand where you are coming from. Believe me, my "me" time is very valuable and I appreciate every minute of it. Place where I used to work actually had "personal days" in addition to "sick day". Isn't it awesome that a company recognizes that you need those every now and then.
