The top ten reasons why I shouldn’t go to work today, even though I will.
10- my new puppy is entirely too cute and I wanna stay home and play with her. They just grow up too fast!
9-it’s cold out there and warm in here. Plus I have coffee. That pot isn’t gonna drink itself!
8-there is a mountain of mail/shoppers/magazines on my table that I should probably look through. There could be a check!
7-Good Morning America is calling my name.
6-this is a 3 day holiday weekend and if I take today, I could make it four!!!
5-I’m already up. I could be so productive today here at home instead of work.
4-I haven’t even started on this year’s reading list. Me and the furry children could cuddle and read all.day.long.
3-I’ve been awake since 0315…I could use a nap later on.
2-I could write something. Anything. Just let those creative juices flow with wild abandon.
And the number one reason I shouldn’t go to work today, even though I will…is because I love my job and I want to keep it that way. Is is good to have a mental health day from time to time. Here in the HFTP we recognize and embrace crazy head on and with gusto; and we understand that a working/playing balance keeps us from burning the whole park down.
Take the day if you must. I’m headed to work.
Your very BEST friend in the whole entire world
