A Day Off

2 Total Shares

Yes, I’m going to take a day off.

I’m going to:

  • clean house
  • grocery shop
  • meet a friend for coffee
  • pay bills and balance the checkbook
  • take a nap
  • take a walk; maybe take two or three walks
  • maybe take a second nap

I’m NOT going to:

  • read a book
  • work on a manuscript
  • talk shop

Hey, we’re self-employed. We can take a personal day now and then.
When’s the last time YOU took a day off? What did you do?

    On my last day off, my husband and I visited the CT Renaissance Faire. While I was sitting there minding my own business, enjoying Zoltan the Adequate’s Weird Show, an irresistible plot line popped into my mind and I was left scrabbling through my purse trying to find a pen to scratch it out on a napkin before I lost it. The moral is, you can make your body take a day off, but sometimes the mind has other plans.

    Good for you Darcy. Everyone needs a day off for themselves. I spent from 9 to 4 the day our new Donald W. Reynolds library had their opening celebration Oct 9th. I was living in a dream world. But Jan is right the mind keeps on dreaming
