I give...

We have been working so hard to get the girls caught up with schoolwork that I haven't had a break, mentally, in more than a week. 

So, today I called a mental day.

We had our hairs cut this morning and it took two hours to get us all through the process.  The girls were great and we look amazing!! ;-D  When we finally got home it was lunch time.  That took a painfully long time to accomplish and might have involved pulling hens teeth.  But I can't be sure about that.

After lunch, I sat down on the couch.  Turns out that there is a magic button on my behind that causes my eyes to close when it comes in contact with the couch cushion.  I barely had enough time to start the school movie before drool was escaping my mouth and trailing down my chin.  I'm not sure if the snoring woke me up or the closing credits of the movie causing a low rumble to burst forth from the peanut gallery but I missed the entire movie.  And the afternoon.

It wasn't a very successful school day but we are all a little happier for it.  Tomorrow, it's back to the grindstone!

I think that mental health days are just as important as math and science. When they are necessary they are REALLY necessary! Glad to hear that it was a good day. You'll be better at it tomorrow after having a day of rest.

Nothing wrong with a good mental health day every now and again. Sounds like your body decided you needed some rest. :)
