The Importance of Goofing Off

Did you know that today is National Goof Off Day? If I would have know, I would have made a plan. The first thing I would have done was skip work. And just like the all American movie hero Ferris Bueller, Doc and I could have had a great day of doing whatever we wanted and maybe even arranged our own flash mob! But no, we are toiling away at the job, only able to dream of a day with nothing to do.

It can be easy to get stuck in the every day grind. Go to work, come home, do some chores, take care of the kids and pets, watch tv, go to bed and then get up and do it all over again. I guess days like National Goof Off Day are to remind us to mix it up sometimes, de stress and not get stuck doing the same old thing. In other words, don’t forget to inject some fun in your life.

So today, even though we are at work, I am going to let loose a little and be silly and try to cheer up my co-workers. Maybe even take a nap in the middle of the work day. ( I can get away with that) Then when we get home, I will encourage Doc to forget the chores and maybe even watch Ferris Buellers Day Off to remind us that everyone needs to let loose and have fun sometimes.
