Bad Day - Turn that Frown Upside Down

I pride myself on maintaining my sense of humour even on the worst of days. My day was pretty crappy, but not as crappy as the escape artist's day is about to come - yuck yuck yuck!

I don't want to go into great detail because I'm not a whiner - suffice it to say that a couple of my students had a really tough time today, then I had a looooooooooong meeting about one of the students, then I had a lot of school-related errands to run and arrived home finally at 6:45 pm, more than 12 hours after I left this morning. Then I proceeded to work up a new schedule for one of my students and just finished a couple of minutes ago. Just in time to get ready for bed as my throat/cough is adding to my sense of general blechhiness (yes, that's a word - in my dictionary anyways;) all day I was having hot flash after hot flash and then I realized - I probably just have a fever, silly me! 

And so, I leave you with a song as music always soothes the soul, hopefully it will get your toes tapping...


On the bright side I had another No Spend Day! :)


  1. Sorry you had bad a day. I love that you ended with a bright note. Hope you have a better day tomorrow.

  2. Aww... sorry you had a bad day! :( I hope the sun shines extra bright for you tomorrow!! :) Hugs!!

    PS - love this song.. one of my faves!

  3. Great Post. I like the video and the blog also.

  4. Hi Jane,
    I hope to day is a much better day for you! I love how you always find the positive in what could be a "crappy" situation. Congrats on another no spend day!

  5. Welcome to my humble blog RHT - make yourself right at home. Here you will find honesty, humour and friendship - check out my sidebar for other great blogs!

  6. Sorry to hear it was a rough day for you and your students. Being sick makes it tougher to keep a good frame of mind (as I'm finding this week!) Good idea to have a song to lift your spirits. I actually have a playlist on my iPhone called "Mood Lifter" for just this purpose. These are songs that always make me smile/sing along/dance/tap my toe (or all of the above!) Here's hoping tomorrow is waaaaay better!!

  7. The best part about these kinds of days, is that tomorrow is more appreciated! Happy today Jane! Goodbye bad day!

  8. Oh Jane!!!!! Sending lots and lots of hugs your way!!! You really are an angel sent from heaven for all those children you are helping!! Hope tomorrow is much better! Hope you are feeling better too!!

  9. Couldent resist popping in to see my special friend, get well soon.

    I spent $5 today, on coffee out with MIL, oops !!!!!

  10. Jane,
    That escape artist will certainly be in for a surprise. It was my laugh for the day. Thanks I needed it.
    I hope you get over that nasty flu bug soon. It can be so hard to concentrated especially putting in such long hours and feeling run down.
    Take care!
