Taking the day off from work, just to take the day off

Periodically, you need to play hooky from work just to play hooky from work.

Just to blow off some steam! If you are a really hard worker, as well as you hardly ever miss a day, every now as well as then you should never get the need to justify yourself by taking a day off to relax.

That’s our philosophy about work. I took last weekend off, as well as it was glorious. I did not visit anywhere special, oh no; I stayed indoors. It had snowed heavily the previous evening. There was just shy of a foot of the colorless stuff coating the ground. I figured this was the perfect time to call in. I provided our best impression of someone who came down with strep throat. After I got off the “sick” call, I cranked up the heating system as well as put a few logs on the fire for fine measure. Then, I brewed some tea, toasted a couple pieces of toast, as well as sat down on our big, comfortable couch, wrapped up in blankets. It was deep into the single digits outdoors, so I needed every bit of the heat from our furnace as well as the fireplace. I let our mind drift for a few moments, to the hardships that I would be going through had I not arranged for this day to be one for rest as well as recuperation. I imagined at that moment, I’d be trudging into the office in wet shoes, cursing the insufficient heating on our floor, but dwelling on such thoughts, I felt little to no remorse for treating myself to an enjoyable day. I did not do anything productive that weekend, however that has the point. I just basked in the warmth of our blessed home’s heating system as well as the fireplace, looked at a few chapters of our latest favorite book, as well as then promptly fell asleep!
