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!
