One of my favorite responses to yesterday’s blog about my missing the “Harry Potter” movie premiere due to work commitments was…
Call in sick.
As many of you already know, I’m self-employed. As a contract and freelance worker, I have dozens of employers. I love the variety in my work, the flexibility in my schedule (most of the time), working from my home office with my dog Rory, and generally, being my own boss.
There are a few things I do miss. Someone else to handle the billing. And insurance. And travel. And all the one hundred and one things that can eat away at your day.
And the company holiday party. Those always kinda rocked.
But I never thought about missing having sick days until my friend made me realize — they’re just not an option anymore.
Or, should that be…paws?
