If you don’t have anything nice to say…

 

Don’t forget to enter yourself in my giveaway! Who doesn’t want a cute pair of earrings for free?!

Yesterday was one of the worst days I’ve had in a long time. By the time my head hit the pillow last night, my body was a GIANT stress ball. My day began with this:

0 fresh 006

Soggy wetness. Which actually didn’t bother me at all. It was chilly outside which made me really happy. This also made me happy:

0 fresh 004

KERF whipped gluten free oats with my granola. The last bowl!! :( But that didn’t bother me at all either. I’m excited about making my next batch of granola. I followed the bowl up with:

 0 fresh 002

A hot cup of Fair Trade coffee and a side of Ghost World. All of this made me happy.

And then I went to work. And everything went downhill fast. By the end of the day, the stress was weighing me down. The worst part for me is that I couldn’t even write a blog post. I felt like I shouldn’t share my bad day with you guys. If you don’t have anything nice to say right? But even tonight, I’m realizing that writing these posts, really does help. I think blogging may have helped. But I just don’t have bad days often. Actually, rarely. So in that sense I am SUPER thankful. I’m also thankful for Parrish. Who after my long day surprised me with:

0 fresh 013

Freshly made Corn Tortillas and lime spiked chicken!

0 fresh 010

I loved the sour punch!

After dinner I went and snuggled with this sleepy guy and read my Bible study, until all my worries were washed away.

So sleepy.

And this morning I woke up and felt great! I think a long run would have helped yesterday too, but unfortunately I couldn’t manage to squeeze it in. How do you guys handle stressful days?
