My mental health day... (otherwise known as a furlough day)

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Oh the joys of a sign of the times.  

I had the pleasure of enjoying two furlough weeks last year and since CNHI (the company that owns my magazine) liked it so much, it looks as if we will get one every quarter this year!  YAY!!!  If you can't hear the sarcasm in my voice... please try again. 

And since I had two "mental health days" left in this quarter... I decided to take one today.  I just knew that today was going to be rainy and lots of bad weather.  So it sounded like a perfect day to stay in my pjs, right!?!  WRONG!  After being up half the night with the flashing of lightening and the rumbling of thunder, I wake up to this...

Nothing but blue skies and some wind.  And of course, what do the weather folks say is on hand for tonight?  You got it, bad weather.  Perfect, I didn't want to sleep tonight!

So, what do you do on a mental health day?  Let's see.  I went to tan.  I talked to my man on his way to Alabama for a meeting today.   I'm watching soap operas, and just let me tell you... you can go three years without watching it and still know what is going on.  Later, I plan on watching Ellen... live!  Normally I DVR her show but not today... I'm kinda excited.  Where, you may ask, am I watching all this exciting line up of TV...
Picture me... planted in the middle of the remote and blackberry and Marleigh.  Yep - that's where I am right now... blogging away. 

Now, if I can just get the big man upstairs to open up the skies and let the rain fall down.  I could use a good nap before the nasty weather comes rolling in later tonight.
