Yes, I Took the Damn Day Off

Today is a true blogger’s sick day. I got up with high hopes of getting things done. I took a run, I wrote post cards, I walked to the post office with said cards.

As I walked home from the post office, I started to feel kind of crappy. I thought, just get through today. Tomorrow you can take the day to lounge around and rest. As the morning wore on, I decided, No. Today will be my day off.

I messaged my friend Kim, who I had plans with. She was most understanding. If my day off has had the desired effect, we may get together tomorrow.

However, if not, I will damn well stay home and keep my germs to myself. Some of us buy into the mentality that we must drag ourselves along as best we can, being as productive as we can manage. However, in these COVID enhanced times, we are beginning to appreciate the value of staying the hell home.

No, I do not think I have COVID. I believe it is a common or garden cold, or perhaps just my body’s need to relax for just a short time. In any case, here is my long winded excuse for no blog post today. I will try to come up with something better for tomorrow. As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.

  2. Get some rest. Stress, weather changes, and allergies can also make you feel ill! They do me, at least. A combo of all three is terrible. I hope tomorrow you are feeling much better.
