Today and tomorrow are mental health days

In my guise as an omnipotent being, I have declared today and tomorrow Mental Health Days. I decided this about one hour after I got into work today.

I woke up totally exhausted from all of the hours I had been working and walked in to work to deal with a boss who did not have the grace to tell all of his employees what a sensational job they had done to get him through the end of the fiscal year.

I decided there and then that I had more than enough sick time saved up to take a couple of days off of work. Can they survive without me? To be honest, it is not something that overly concerns me right now. Occasionally, you have to think of yourself.

I am being rightfully selfish. If I don't look after myself, no-one else will (well maybe my darlin' "Jay" will).

So go ahead, if possible, treat yourself to a mental health day this final week of summer.

ROFL - ahh I knew there would be a good reason I read your blog. If only to see the picture of Q. Thanks for that, it made me smile.

The best thing to do on mental health days if you abhor your boss, like I do, is to call in with completely ridiculous excuses. Here are a few I've used:

The garage has fallen in on my car. Can't back out.
I awoke this morning and my nostrils are swollen shut.
I got my toe stuck in the drain of the shower, can't get out.
I've locked myself in the garage without my keys or the opener.
I was pulled over and taken in to jail. Bond won't be posted until tonight, but it was all a mistake.
I went to drop off clothes at Salvation Army and have been recruited to manage the soup kitchen for the day.
Dropped off clothes at the women's shelter and they didn't have enough people to hold the crack babies.

I did indeed manage to have a good couple of days just spending time with myself. I have always liked my own company so it is very relaxing for me. I do know some people who cannot be alone for any amount of time.
