Justifying hibernation

11 Apr

Have you ever had one of those days? You know the kind I am talking about. All you want to do is lay on the couch, watch bad TV and order takeout. In fact, sometimes you eat chips and salsa for dinner because you don’t even want to deal with putting on a bra to answer the door for the  delivery guy.

I want one of those days. Soon.

It’s hard to justify having a day where you do nothing and see no one, but my friends know that I sometimes need them. I need to be alone sometimes. I need to completely check out. I call them my hibernation days. Maybe it could also be called a mental health day, although I take those too (I usually go to the movies or lunch with friends when a mental health check is needed).

I’m thinking the hibernation day for me might be at some point this weekend. I strongly advise you all to do the same.

How do you justify “checking out”?

    I would love to get away and hibernate. Although we were just on vacation…it was with the kids and the hubby….plus trying to post my A to Z – poem theme too. Ugh.

    Love this post! Can’t wait to find some time to hide away. Thanks for joining our Show Off Blog party. 🙂

        yes, I agree with you on that…I’m heading out with my sis soon, but need to get my poems/post ready before that, so ugh! 🙂

    That sign is awesome! I need one! I swear my mom made me the same snuggly blanket. She passed away a few years ago so I’m reading this and crying like a baby. Quick! Tell me a joke!

    […] the girl who sells the product, shared the post on her Facebook page. The second most viewed was Justifying Hibernation. I am hoping that one is because so many people need their “me time” like I do! As far […]

I love hearing what you have to say! Give it to me...
