Oh Crappy Day

A while ago, the lovely proprietoress of Doing my Best opened up registration for a Crappy Day Present Exchange  (I'd use her name, but I'm not sure how she'd feel about that. Also, Hi!)

She had realized that some times, you're having a day that just plain sucks. Nothing about it can be redeemed. Yet, maybe, if you had a present to open, things might get better. So she started stockpiling little things for herself. Nothing much, a token here, a nice candybar there, so that when she needed a pick-me-up, she had it on hand. Shortly after, she made up a care package for a friend, with the instructions that the friend should open one of the bundles in side, when she was having a bad day.

(Oh, right, here's her own post on the origins of the Crappy Day Present. Henceforth, the CDP.)

So, I signed up - and lo and behold right when I needed it most, I received a lovely CDP of my very own. Now, granted, since I was going through a particularly bad patch in the family, I opened a lot of the presents in the first week.

It was lovely, my gift came from a new blogging pal, I hope.
She sent some great stuff:


  • Fancy hand soap for the bathroom
  • A new bath scrubbie thing in my favorite color
  • Hair clips for when my hair is finally long enough to wear up again
  • Dove chocolates
  • A fancy sea-salt and caramel chocolate bar
  • A scented candle
  • Lippy stuff
  • a gel eye-mask (perfect for helping with migraines!)
  • A scrubby mitten for the bath


It was wonderful to know that for a little while someone thought about me and the sent some great things to help make me a little happier.

I am glad that the package helped a bit. It is a wonderful idea. I hope things are improving for you.
