A much needed mental health day
I had a real crappy night's sleep and a migraine so I took the day off from my paying job yesterday. It wasn't really a sick day as much as it was a mental health day. It was very therapeutic
Did I curl up on the couch under a quilt with Dr. Phil or Harry Potter?
I actually worked my tail off tackling the laundry mountain and organizing my sewing room for 5 hours BUT it was just what the doctor ordered. The kids were at school so I didn't have to settle arguments, listen to tattling, break up fights all day...that stuff really eats up your time. I love them dearly but I am never free from them, when I am home they are home...all the time...everyday there is at least one of them with me at all times. I needed a day off. I also know my life is out of control when my sewing room is as much of a disaster as the rest of the house. This is MY place that I can control.
Things have been bad.
I need to take a day off every now and then but I need the money so I save my days off for when the kids are sick or have some "teacher in service" day off from school so then I never have a day to myself.
This is a problem.
hmmmm, I started this post because I felt so much better after my mental health day and now I feel all whiney and pitiful again. I am becoming a terrible bore! Just look at the pretty pictures, I'll snap out of it, I'm pretty sure it's mostly PMS :/
