5 things that make a bad day good

So after my little rant last night, I was feeling a little down when I woke up this morning.  It was cold and rainy, and I was tired (of course that was my own fault for staying up until midnight playing Farmville on Facebook).  I had a hard time focusing on the work I had to do, and by 3:00 I just wanted to go home.  I decided that I needed a little lift, and so I came up with this list of 5 things that for me, always help make a bad day good again.
1.  Good music.
There's absolutely nothing like cranking the radio and singing along with my favourite tunes.  Right now in my CD player I have the new Lady Antebellum album.  LOVE IT!!! My favourite song is "Need you Now" - I can listen to that song 10 times in a row and not get tired of it.
2.  New shoes.
I love indulging in a little "retail therapy" at any and all times (the kids in my Sunday School can even tell you what my favourite stores are - I'm not sure whether that's a good thing or a bad thing LOL).  Today I decided I was going to go look for a pair of sandals that I've had my eye on for a while.  I found them, and they had them in my size! I'm very excited about my new sandals.
3.  Chocolate.
I firmly believe that chocolate is good for what ails you.  'Nuff said.
4.  Puppy kisses.
Whenever I have a really bad day at work, there is something something so inordinately comforting in knowing that there's a little brown dog just waiting for me to come home.  When I come to the top of the stairs and see that happy little face grinning at me...well, there's nothing better than that! She's always so happy to see me, and always has tons of kisses for me.  Ever tried to stay unhappy when you're being kissed? Try it sometime; betcha can't do it!
5.  A warm relaxing bath/shower and my favourite PJ's.
The perfect end to a lousy day! Nothing like standing under or soaking in that hot water and letting it just wash all the problems away.  My favourite pajamas are bright yellow with Winnie the Pooh on them - I call them my "happy jammies".

And now 'cuz I'm in a good mood, I feel like passing it on.  Leave a comment telling me what picks you up when you're down and you could win an RAK!
Until next time,


  1. It's impossible for me to feel down when I work with kids. There's something so joyful about little kids that's contagious. The other thing that I can do when i'm down is run a hot bath and then I'll soak with a book and a bowl of ice cream.

  2. When I'm feeling down I pray,journal and read in my Bible.That always makes me feel better.
