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!
