I very rarely get a case of the blues, but Monday was just one of those days where I was just feeling “ugh” and could not get past it. It was Philip’s last day of vacation so he was home all day with us, but I was trying to get out of vacation-mode, Peanut was begging for attention every moment, and I was bugged that it was the new year (time to start my new years resolutions!) and yet we did nothing all day.
Then I logged into facebook and saw my sweet friend, Sherry’s status: “Sherry thinks tonight is like Christmas Eve for Mothers! Tomorrow brings structure, schedule, ROUTINE!!“
And she was so right. Tuesday morning I woke up bright (dark) and early, studied my scriptures, exercised, got ready for the day, spent all day working on letters, playing and reading with Peanut, ate healthy meals, spent quality time with Philip, and got us right back on schedule. It was glorious. And what do you know? The blues were gone.
Except for all the blue I wore. But that didn’t bother me one bit — in fact, it made me feel even better.
