Psssst...come here....


...shhhh...I have a secret..


I'm seriously staying home today...and...I'm not sick !

I think it's stinks to have to stay home and be..you know..sick and all..


To have the hours not to have to go to work...but then to lie around and feel yucky? And sleep?

Then before you know it..the day's over and it's time to go to work ..again..

I'm just not working today..

No doctor's appointments, no dentist visits..no time-off needed to go to the Dept of Motor Vehicles.

Today, I called in...ah...sic..ah...not feel...OK, I called in with a messy house that needed cleaning..


And I needed to watch "27 Dresses" free on cable...in the morning (!)


And I needed to eat a good breakfast after our extended morning walk.



And I needed to be alone in the house...


And not put on my face, or drive, or think or talk..or count the hours to lunch, tea time, close of day.. but just to sit on my tuffet..



So, here I am..felling great...cleaning my house...not talking...no make-up...and loving every minute.

Later I might even 'go for it' and read my BOOK instead of emails and reports and accounts...



But, remember...this is OUR secret, OK??


-me

ps- I highly recommend it..

Oh to have the house to oneself...just for a few hours! A luxury for free! Enjoy every minute, dear friend.

I LOVE my house to myself, anytime I can get it that way. It's raining today, so after working all morning, am going to curl up on the couch with my book. Good on you girl, for taking time for yourself.

Nothin' like a good chick flick when there's no man around to roll his eyes! Enjoy!

Bon Ami! Is that still around? I don't think I've seen that since forever. But I may be blind at the grocery store.

You go girl! Well deserved day off if you ask me!

Kerrie said...

Been there, done that-ha! I used to call it a "regrouping" day. Retirement is wonderful, I get to take any day. Loved your sense of humor! Kerrie

Psst....Isn't it fun! Just to have "me time". Ohhh, Colleen,, you are so naughty, but so deserving...
So go read your book and listen to nothing... and enjoy every minute..

Laurie said...

I promise I won't tell! You're so funny Colleen!

Good for you Collen. We call them Mental Health Days. Publishing it on the internet is not really keeping it a secret...There aren't any secrets any more. The Tax man knows everything and Centrelink too. (Social Security) I can recommend retirement, lots of time to do ME stuff but it is hard living on a tight budget.aHope you have recharged your batteries and read your book.
