Mental Health Day

So today I took an unplanned, mental health day.  After three nights of awful sleep and a pile up of stress about work and schedules, I am just wiped out.  This morning, after a long round of snooze pushing, I realized I had set my alarm clock for later when I went to bed last night.  I crawled back into bed trying to figure out how much longer I had before I needed to get up  to get the kids to school on time and go in late to work.

Then Grady said, "Mom, my tummy hurts."  Usually I tell my kids you have to have a fever or be puking to stay home from school, but today I said, "Okay, we'll stay home."  I sent my texts and made a few calls, and we all went back to bed until just after 10 a.m. this morning.  Which is unheard of for my early bird kids.  I figure we must all have needed a resting day.  Even if we just came off of a three day weekend and it's only Tuesday...


  1. Must be something in the air. We all took a mental health day yesterday. Good for you, Mama! I think sometimes you just gotta do that. Hope everyone is refreshed!

  2. Thank you! I noticed that theme in a lot of the blogs yesterday. Me and the kids are feeling a lot better.
