I'm at home...Took the day off today. I've been battling a stupid cold for the past couple of days now. It started over the weekend and just kept getting worse. And although I am not dying and could technically have gone to work today, I decided to take the day off and rest a bit.
I could so get used to this!
I'm still checking my work e-mail once in a while to make sure there are no major disasters, but I also have the TV on, I'm logged into Facebook and I am browsing some blogs...And I've just rented a movie which I plan to start very soon.
I don't usually take sick days. As a matter of fact, over the past 2 and a half years here in Dubai, I've only taken one other sick day. I always feel bad taking days off because that means dumping work on other people, and it also means that a lot of work gets put on hold because I'm not there to move things along...
But this morning, as I woke up feeling like crap, and feeling like I needed another 3 hours of sleep (which I ended up having by the way), I decided that it would not be the end of the world if I took the day off, and that I am not indispensable at work, and that companies have sick day policies for a reason, and that sick days are meant to be taken when someone is sick, and that I don't have to be dying in order to take advantage of a sick day, and that I really needed to rest in order to be able to get rid of this damn cold because I don't want to be stuck at home this weekend.
Okay...better go start that movie now...:)
