You have my permission to take the day off from housework! It is NO HOUSEWORK DAY, a great day to get outside and enjoy yourself. Ride your bike, wash your car, take a leisurely walk or take your dog to the park. Whatever you decide to do, make sure you take a deep cleansing breath and make a mental note – “I’m relaxing today!”
Some people say we make our own happiness – and I have mixed feelings on the subject. I believe God directs my path, but yes, I have a free will and can choose the activities I take part in. To that extent, I most certainly can decide whether I will take a break from work or not.

I’ve said time and again, I choose happiness! It is a decision I made a long time ago. Observing these wacky holidays and writing about them every day is part of my choice to be happy. See, I think it’s difficult to find a good reason to get out of bed in the morning sometimes. As strange as it sounds, these wacky holidays give me something to look forward to every day!
Check out this cute poem written by Lucinda Berry Hill:
Some of the wacky days are really off the wall – but I think they are fun and I have enjoyed celebrating them – and celebrating life! Too many people fail to celebrate little things – and we all know that it’s the little things that make life worth living.

Today I’m just going to read a book or watch a DVD or – hey, work on my blog! But I will under no circumstances do anything that resembles housework. This chick’s had it – at least for today. Wink! 😉
