August Happiness Challenge -- Day 24

Look at my happy kitty
Wednesday's happiness: Clean pajamas. OK, so this cold is miserable.

I got up this morning as I always do -- Reynaldo insists on breakfast -- and was just weary down into my bone marrow. I looked out at the gray and clouds and remembered that today was the all-agency picnic and the office would be closing at 12:30 anyway. So I called in, left an "I'm sick" message for my boss and my art director, and crawled back into bed.

And slept and slept until nearly 2:00! I wish I could say I felt 100% better, but I didn't. I felt icky and ooky. So I took a shower, scrubbed myself head to toe, and switched to a fresh nightshirt and clean undies. Yea!

Then I went back to bed for another round of sleeping. 

Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.

If you want to play along, just come back here (meaning to this blog, not this individual post) each day in August, looking for the happy cat. Every day I will try to have a post with the headline: August Happiness Challenge: Day [X]. Leave a comment and then post your own daily happiness, with August Happiness Challenge in the title to make it easy to find. 


  1. Sleep is the best medicine! And I completely get the rejuvenating feeling of fresh pjs!

    Feel better soon!

  2. Always best to listen to our bodies and sleep. Sure hope tomorrow is better!


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
