Good Day - Bad Day

Yesterday didn't start out great. The painters I was expecting at 8 showed up at 7:20. Which is good and bad. Gotta love that they were early, but have you ever seen me at 7:20? I was still in my P.J.'s trying to get the kids out the door for school. Not a great way to greet a van full of painters. Then I had to take Peanut to the dentist. No problem. Entertaining Butterball in the waiting room for 1 1/2 hours? Problem. Not to mention he pooped as soon as we walked in the door. I had reached my patience limit for the day by 9:45.

Recovery remedy? Valium, meditation, Vodka?


Nope. I like to go back to basics and eat my way to sanity. It worked. While I was snacking, my favorite person stopped by my house.


The mailman. He was kind enough to bring my new Reader's Digest Books.


Don't you just love them? Not only that he also brought ....


My new fabric. Peacocks = Happiness. And that is how a bad day turned into a good day. Hope your day was a good one without stress, doctor's offices and unexpected poops!
