Why call it a “Mental Health Day”? This was the term some of the teachers my husband used to work with used when they were taking a sick day when the weren’t really “sick”. My borrowing the term does not mean that I condone this use of sick days, but I did get my “sick” day approved by my school administrator 🙂

I have no regrets about taking Friday off. When my to-do list starts getting long, I start getting panicky. And when I get panicky, I actually get LESS done. Here’s what I did accomplish with my extra day off.

On Friday and Saturday I:

Got my Driver’s License renewed

Caught up on laundry

Caught up on grading

Planned upcoming 2 weeks of school

Planned November’s dinner menus

Made my monthly trip to Super Wal-mart for groceries

and even took time for a field trip to Bethabara on Friday!

Maybe I can count Friday as a school day after all!

  1. You get a lot done on your MH-days! I know I get more done on those days too – being in the right frame of mind and getting a break from the usual interruptions make a big difference.

  2. Sounds like a very fun day, you should do this more often!

  3. Bethabara is great! Glad to hear that your mental health day was beneficial for all. Got to keep the mama-teacher happy and healthy for everything to run smoothly!


  4. You really got a lot done. And that field trip looks so much fun. Lots of great pictures. 🙂


  5. Mental health days are good for everyone. I am glad you got one.
