I hate sick days. I don’t take a sick day unless I am really sick. So sick that I can’t leave the bathroom sick. Ok, that may have been too much info, but you get the point! Today, I took a sick day. Part of me feels bad, but only part. I feel great. I slept in a little, I’m still in my pj’s, and I haven’t really done anything yet!
Alright, I’m not the sick one. My daughter is. Kind of. She has pink eye so she can’t go back to school until she’s been on eye drops for 24hrs. I didn’t really want to take today off, but someone had to stay home! I’m kinda liking these kind of sick days. No one is throwing up, no one is lying on the couch whining, no one is going to die. She’s just contagious! Who would have thought I’d be happy with that?! The only struggle I’ll have today is getting the eye drops actually in her eye! If I don’t have to hold her down it will be a great day.
Do you ever just take a sick day to play hookie or do you have to be on your death bed? I think we had this as a question of the day awhile back, but since I can’t do too much today I thought I’d revisit this. Share your stories whether it’s about yourself or your kids or anyone else for that matter!
