Today is Tuesday...

The weather outside is dreary...and I'm feeling kind of blah!
Have you ever had one of those days?
What do you do to break out of the funk?

Yesterday, Emily was feeling kind of dreary. She had been sick with a cold and fever since Friday night. She had been cooped up in the house for most of Friday and Saturday...She felt better on Sunday...then blah again on Monday! I'm hoping that being back at school and going into work will help.Sometimes just getting back in the routine of things is all we really need.

Maybe, I'm feeling a little blah because last week I was on such a mission....and this week I'm back to laundry and groceries and lunches and phone calls for work. Last week, I was participating in the Happy Project! Each day I had an assignment to complete. I did not get them all done, but anything is better than nothing. I enjoyed the planning and the thinking ahead and the idea that so many people would be touched this week in many ways by all of the others out there sharing a little happiness too.

Here are a few instagram photos to recap the project...
My assignment!
Handmade cards given to the sweet ladies in my Bible Study.
Its amazing what 25.00 can buy!
No Bake Cookies!  Treats for Zac's teachers!
We have no idea what kind of crisis is going on. $10 for a years worth of clean water.
My favorite trip to Dollar General.
Shoe boxes for 2 boys and a girl! 
The skies are clearing up outside. I'm dressed and ready to run a few errands before picking up the kiddos.
When we get home, I'll help with homework and then maybe walk the dog! 
Fresh air and running behind the dog...should most definately help!


  1. hi jen!
    i sure do know about those days, i think we all do. the oddest things usually help me break the funk...really good music, cleaning with really good music on and reading to the girls!:)
    i love all of your happy day project plans. we too tried a few and still have more to do. and we can't wait for our trip to the dollar store...for 3 girls boxes!!:)
    have a happy day

  2. Sorry about the blah days. I definitely know about them too. Some days can seem so mundane, and we can trick ourselves into thinking what we are doing doesn't matter. I try to get out of the house, go walking or driving, try something new. It always helps me to get out of the house. I hope today is much better! xo
