Mental Health Day

So, after I realized earlier this week that Thanksgiving is a week later than I originally thought, I also realized that didn’t leave me with much time to use my last remaining personal day at work before the end of the year.  Our paid time off doesn’t roll over and if we don’t use it we lose it so I decided to help get myself into the holiday spirit by taking a day off of work yesterday.  And it.  Was.  Glorious.


I didn’t do anything and it was everything I hoped it could be.  I stayed up late Tuesday night watching one of my favorite shows and then I woke up early yesterday to treat myself to breakfast.  There’s a place I pass almost every day and I never venture there on weekends because it becomes stupidly packed super early, but the crowd isn’t too bad during the week.  So I braved the cold temps, packed up my book and enjoyed a nice breakfast all to myself.  Then I went home and took a three-hour nap and it was pretty much the best thing ever.

I was slightly more productive in the afternoon as I tidied up the apartment and went for a quick workout at the gym.  Then I made brownies and drank some wine, thus capping off my fantastic and wonderful day off of work.  Now it’s almost Friday, I have book club tonight and a weekend to look forward to!

Can I please take Wednesday off every week?
