sick day.

Yesterday was a sick day of sorts for me. I had the worst headache that I've ever had. It started Monday night while I was working out and I hoped a good night's sleep would make it go away. Nope. I woke up with my head still throbbing.

Fluorescent lights and 30 people talking amongst themselves didn't seem like a good idea when it feels like someone is dancing the Cha-Cha in your brain, so I made the executive decision to skip classes and stay home. Unfortunately, I still had homework to do, which means I spent the day in my pyjamas, holding my head, reviewing assessment strategies and completing lesson plans.

If it had been a true day off, with no headache and no assignments to complete, I would have...

...ventured to Starbucks for a caramel brûlé latte. When I was there on Saturday I was told they would probably only have them for about two more weeks!

...finished reading The Happiness Project. I started it a few days ago and although it's not "can't put it down" good, it's interesting and well-written. 

...danced. It's been awhile since our last living room dance party

...watched a few episodes of The West Wing. I'm still only on the third season! 

...watched Parenthood. I'm an episode behind and need to catch up by next week. 

...browsed some of my favourite blogs. 

...gone out to supper with friends. It's always nice to get together and chat over good food. 

I suppose this doesn't seem very exciting, but to me, it sounds like heaven. What about you? What would you do if you had a day off? 


  1. I've been thinking about reading that book! Oddly enough, you're the first person I've come across who has read it.

    1. That's surprising! I know a few people who have read it and they really like it. I also have her page-a-day calendar. It's filled with "happiness" tips.

  2. Ahhh, a day off is lovely, isn't it? Too bad you had work to do...hope your headache is all gone! xoxo

    1. Thank you, Melissa! The headache finally left today!

  3. I had a sick day yesterday too! Work was closed anyway due to the snow, but it made me feel better knowing everyone else wasn't going to be there, so I wouldn't be the only one behind on a days of work!

    Except now I'm home sick again, also with a throbbing headache, and a sore throat and a little achy all over. So I'm home trying to rest it off for good today!

    If I had a day off without being sick, I would..

    ....Begin reading a book that I borrowed from a friend that has been pushed to the side for a long time :)

    ....Continue watching the 4th season of Prison Break, even though it's terrible compared to the other three!

    ....Look up delicious receipes and venture down to the grocery store and take all the time I need to get new spices and food I haven't tried before.

    ....More wedding planning, because there's lots to do that I haven't started!
