I am playing hooky today.

And had to look up both the spelling and the actual meaning of the word 'hooky.' Best I can tell, it originates from kids skipping school to go fishing– something like that.

Anyway, I'm taking a mental health day. No plans. Thought about going to get a massage – but then thought I would be just as rested if I stay at home, find some Jon & Kate reruns on TLC, take six or eight naps, and maybe start my online Christmas shopping. I'm pretty excited about it. And my family will no doubt reap the greater reward – a rested and happy Mama!

    Good for you!!!! We all need days like that. Too bad we don’t live closer, we could have gone out for lunch!
