    Playing hookie from work. Called in sick (cough cough). I really just needed a 3 day weekend - quilting time. Plus I had a trade listed last night on QB and didn't want to keep anyone waiting all day.

    So ... my 2nd sick day this year. Actually the other one was only 1/2 day.

    And you know what. I am feeling NO GUILT about it. I needed and deserved it. I'm calling it a "mental health" day.

    now to get back to the sewing table ... making good progress in there and having a blast!!

    I wish I could do that once in a while. I have tons of sick time built up over 24 years.

    Enjoy!!

    I left early- 2 p.m. vs. 6 p.m.

    Worked double hard to lave early. Mowed some lawn (love it!) and now going to dress up haz mat style to spray some poison ivy. I am terribly allergic and ma afraid to go out there but it must be done! Round Up is my friend!

    Wish I was sewing all day- enjoy it!!! (and don't feel guilty- only the 2nd day, doesn't sound like you abuse your days off, so enjoy)

    Fun stuff. I left work at noon last Friday- 'terrible headache'
    Do what you gotta do. Sewing has health benefits.

    That's awesome. I wish I could do that. The downside of running a daycare from my home is that when I get sick I don't call just one boss, I have to call six of them!

    Good for you. Before I retired when I called in sick I considered it "sick of work" day.

    Really, unless you left your workplace in a crisis by being absent, you're not being bad. By "crisis" I don't mean that others have to pitch in a bit to cover - I'm sure you do that when others take time off. So if no lives were lost and you didn't cause the company to have to shut its doors, no reason to feel guilty.

    Years ago my boss denied me a vacation day during a period when we were not seen patients, just cleaning and doing general lab maintenance and we were actually done. He just wanted to micromanage us to the fullest. I had already tickets to go to Myrtle Beach for a cross Stitcher's group meeting and called "soooo sick" all the way from Myrtle beach. Made sure I didn't get too much sun and never regreted it.
