Skipping School

I'm skipping school! La la la la la

Oh I wish I were having fun though. The weather is gorgeous! 80 degrees, sunny and not a cloud in the sky. Just gorgeous!

But, I am ditching school to nap, blow my nose, and battle germs. Mommies aren't supposed to get sick and this is my second cold in a month! I've been in my pajamas for days and days. No, silly, I have been showering and changing from one jammie to another.

As a college student, you aren't really allowed to stay home sick. Every absence is a black mark on your permanent record. A possible zero in the gradebook. Darn if you go "human" on them.

I've been enjoying my lazy days at home. Hubby has been waiting on me and taking care of the house and kids while I sleep. That in itself is worth getting sick! I'm all caught up on my movie watching, blog reading, and time wasting. Of course I didn't stick my nose in a book like I should have. Didn't want to risk sneezing on my expensive college texts!

But tomorrow, it's back to reality and back to classes. My germs have a deadline. Party's over, time to go. Mary's got a life. It was a nice (but miserable) break though.

In the long run, one sick day won't make a difference on your grades! You deserve a break.

Ick, doesn't sound like a fun skip day. Glad you stayed home & took care of yourself though instead of killing yourself by being sick & making it through a couple of full stressful days. I like you much better when you are alive. =)

It is sad when you're sort of happy to be sick, because you get a break.

See you back at the salt mines!
