Playing Hooky

I played hooky today. Well, actually I got up feeling good enough to go to work but not good enough to feel good about going to work so I did the most logical thing I could think of which was to call my boss and ask for a vacation day.
He saw the forecast and knew that it was going to be sunny and warm here in Empire and he knew I would be worthless at work so he said have at it Bubba enjoy yourself. That I did. Jilda and I went for a walk and let the dogs loose to chase every living critter in the county.
Afterwards I read, took a nap, planted our new blueberries and wrote notes to some of our friends. I realized by mid-afternoon that I felt much better and taller too. Relaxation is something we don't allow ourselves to do nearly enough. The thing is, there is always something to do..something to take up you time. I think if you don't take a little time for yourself, your head gets full and stuff starts to fall out when you least expect it.
Anyhow, if it's been a while since you've take some time just for yourself, I recommend that you take a day of real soon and play hooky.
