That thing-that-should-not-be-mention

Be warned, you may be disappointed. I did not work as an undercover agent, stole some jewelry or work as a stripper (what? it can happen)...just letting you know.
I finally got my pics so now I can tell you what I did a few weeks back.

A little history: after the nightmare of our flight back with Spirit (AKA the worst airline in the history of Aviation) I returned to work 2 days later. I was called to the big boss office to tell me I had a warning for not being there when I was supposed to. Never mind that I was in constant contact with the office letting them know about the situation (and paying long distant charges, may I add) nope. never.mind.

He proceeded to tell me that I had missed MANY days (yeah, like in May when I got a RAD Sinus infection that the ER put me home for 5 days, while at the same time my little guy had "the hand, foot and Mouth virus" and fever. Or when the little guy got sick AGAIN with yet another ear infection accompanied by a virus. Yeap. I did miss ALL those days- in which every.single.time I brought Doctors notes. (hubs and I took turns also).

Boss said I had no more days that I could take for the rest of the year {that was in July} I told him that I hoped I didn't have to take any days, but that I have kids and a family to take care of. He did not seem to care.

A few weeks back the hubs cousin that lives about 4 hours away invited the entire family for the weekend: cookout, lake, fire pit... At first we said no since I work on Saturday's. Then the Friday night before the reunion we had a family meeting. We decided to go. Yeah folks, I called in sick without a Dr's note, risking to be suspended.
In this time and age we focus too much on money and what we "need". I am one of those that has a long list of wants. I know we need the money and some people may call me irresponsible for calling out. Honestly I could care a rats ass. I have a family that needs me. I...we needed that time off. Time to reconnected, to have a road trip and sing along to ridiculous music. We had a blast and in the end I know it was the best decision. Let the images speak:

Oh, and I got something else to tell you. The hubs was watching Robbin Williams stand up comedy last night as I fell into Morpheus arms. I dozed away and later on (when the hubs left the room to go to the PC) I was waken up by the following sounds "yeah, yes, yes, F*me, f*me mr. cookie dough maaaaaaaaaaaaan (follow by heavy breathing) I kid you not. Apparently after a certain time Showtime (or was it HBO) has that certain amount of entertainment. Then I see our oldest pops by the door and says to me (all the while I'm pressing the remote buttons like a mad woman)

oldest: "Mom, I'm gonna close your door 'cause you seemed to be watching porn" and laughs.

Me: "Noooooooooo I am NOT!" press button, press button, curse.

Yeah, my life is a sitcom.

Over & out

Looks like your sick day was worth it! What precious family time! Could you imagine life without it? I don't think so... who wants to only remember sitting at a desk their entire life? And that last bit was soo funny!

you are so right - we all need me time! good for you for recognizing that. sometimes I call in sick just because I desperately need a mental health day.
