    That’s what makes being a good mom great…teaching your children so well that when they screw up they know and punish themselves and you just get to sit back and watch.

    I took two mental health days: 9/11/01 and 9/12/01. The second day I sat out on the deck and looked up at the skies, so empty of the usual motors, wings and contrails.

    I remember the day planes started flying again, I was in a parking lot and one flew over and every single person in that lot stopped and looked up to see the plane……..was so scary.

    A Mental Health day is when the kids go to daycare, the sig other goes to work, and Mom goes to the spa. Ahh. A mud rub, a swim, a massage, heaven. Especially mid week when the place is quiet.

    sorry you guys worried about the planes, how soon we forget. 9/11 is what propelled me out of CA – away from the cities and the paranoid feeling I had.

    I feel too guilty not to go and teach …my students really depend on me . ESL is not an option anymore.

    There’s absolutely nothing wrong with taking the occasional ‘mental health day’. look back on my wk past and there were days I wish I had taken a mental health day. Your sick time off is part of you benefit package to be used as you see fit.

    The only time I took a mental health day, and an emotional health day, was Sept. 12, 2009, which was when my dad was in the hospital and I wasn’t sure if he was going to make it due to suffering from sudden cardiac arrest.
    Good news, he did pull through, but I called into work that I couldn’t come in since I was waiting at the hospital with my family.

    Val should have just slept in, watched some TV, and then commented on Gocomics.

    I may regret asking this, but here goes:

    How in the world would a comic strip character who does not exist in the real world, leave a comment on GoComics?
