I don’t know if that’s what it’s called everywhere, but around here it’s when you call off work or don’t go to school just because you want to. You’re not sick. You don’t really have anything you have to do. You just stay home.
Everyone needs a break every once in a while. Just enjoy a day to yourself, watch old re-runs on the TV, eat a bag of chips in bed and don’t change out of your pyjamas. I haven’t done this in a while, so I’m due for one. I’ll get up, take the kids to day care and come back home. I might slip back into my pyjamas and make a cup of coffee…
… Or I might just go back to bed for a few hours. And then I get to watch TV. Not just that, but I get to watch whatever I want on TV!
I have the remote and no interruptions.
After some TV, I might take another nap… who knows.
Oh, and I can read for as long as I want without having to stop to break up fights or cook some food. Although, now that we have a dog, I’d have to go feed him and let him loose to run around for a bit, but then I could just sit on the porch swing and watch the clouds roll by.
This mom is due for a good day off. No work. No kids. No hubby. No cleaning. No cooking. Just relaxing and catching up on sleep for a day. Doesn’t that just sound so AWESOME!
