Have you ever had one of those days ( or weeks) where you’re just like, it ain’t gonna happen today? I ain’t feeling this today? Well that’s where I’m at now. I’ve been that way all week really but I just suck it up and keep on trucking. At least I try to…that is of course with the exception of today. I had to call out today. —on a side note: which one is it, do you call in or call out of work? lol–Yesterday I contemplated calling in but I decided against it and went to work. In my job I work in customer service and we get paid incentive bonus for hitting certain points. Like have high adherence (coming to work on time, etc), and having a high quality score, and some other points as well. Well this month I scored high on all of the points, but bc I had a low quality score this month, it basically put me to where I wasn’t going to earn a bonus for this month. No biggie..I won’t be hurting for money because we’re getting our tax refund. But it sucks bc I fell short by 1 point. Yes people, I said 1 point! The new month starts on Monday, and I will start over again. If there was a day to call out of work, today would be that day. I don’t wanna call out next month because I want my bonus. But that’s not the only reason I called out. I have just been so drained lately. Feeling like I’m not getting enough sleep, like there’s not enough time in my day. And when I woke up this morning, I didn’t want to go to work so bad that I was hoping that it had snowed last night so that daycare was closed and I had to stay home with the kids. (yeah it’s that serious!) But no snow this far east, just bitter cold windy rain.
Sometimes your body sends you signals that tell you what you need to do. Your stomach grumbles when you’re hungry. Your eyes get heavy when you’re sleepy. And when your body is telling you that it needs some rest, it will start to shut down on you. It makes it hard for you to wake up in the morning. It resists your attempts of overcaffination. It makes you a little more moody. You get what I’m trying to say. And sometimes you just need a day off. You just need a block of hours where it’s just you and you can lay down and veg out in front of the tv. Don’t worry about the chores don’t worry about the bills, just rest. And that’s what I needed today. So although I don’t like calling out of work, sometimes you just need the opportunity to rest. And for me, where I’ve been used to working on Saturdays and therefore having a day off in the week, it’s hard for me to not go to work as scheduled. It goes against my work ethic. But you gotta listen to your body sometimes. (not everytime you don’t wanna go to work, bc then you’re just a lazy bum who will soon be a lazy and unemployed bum) And that’s what I chose to do today. So once this coffee works its way out of my system (i made it before i decided to call in) I will have an appointment with my bed. It’s so rare for this mommy to take a nap, today my body is giving me no other option…and I’m cool with that.
