Example of a Crappy Day Package #7

A Lovely, Lovely Person* sent a Crappy Day Package (a LONG time ago...sorry! I'm a hoarder saver!) to cheer me up!  It worked =)!

(Oh!  I almost forgot!  The present for Marie contained a cute, little, stuffed animal that she LOVED!)

We were making treats for Family Night, so I followed directions and opened the appropriate package:

It was Marie's turn to make the treat, and she quite enjoyed using the sprinkles:

I FINALLY remembered to open one of the packages intended for when the kids are driving me crazy:
The kids LOVE this!

I was having a particularly Crappy Day that was only going to get worse, so I opened this one;  the tag said it was full of pampering things:

There was:
1.  An eye mask (which I will have to hide from the children or they'll take it)
2.  Two homemade bath scrubs (I LOVE bath scrubs AND homemade stuff!!!!)
3.  One homemade lip balm (HOMEMADE!!! AWESOME!!!)
4.  SOFT socks (This was quite timely as Marie has been stealing my few pairs of good, soft socks recently.)
5.  Hand sanitizer (This was also timely as I needed another small hand sanitizer to put in my purse!)
6.  Peanuts-themed post-it notes (will also have to hide these from the children who LOVE Peanuts)
7.  Vanilla scented lotion (How did Lovely Person know that I like vanilla scents too =)?)

The bath scrubs turned out to be a GODSEND. I went Cleaning that afternoon, and, by the time I returned home, I was contemplating my options for how to best disinfect myself....bleach bath? hot, steamy water? scraping myself clean with something? THE BATH SCRUBS!! I picked the Pumpkin Spice sugar scrub and it was PERFECT!! I felt thoroughly scraped free of the smell of that house all dirt and bug germs, and there was some sort of oil in with the sugar, so I was soft afterwards! Then I put on my new soft socks and felt nicely pampered!

Upon closer inspection, the post-its became EVEN MORE appropriate!!  (I'm SURE that was just a coincidence and not Lovely Person trying to tell me that I am often crabby ;-).)

The other presents for bribing distracting the children:  bubbles and glow bracelets!  PERFECT!!

Thank you, Lovely Person!!  I very much appreciate the time and effort that went into this package, and I am enjoying everything you sent =)!!
*I will be keeping Crappy Day Present senders anonymous so that the sender doesn't have to worry that Person Q is going to see what they (the sender) sent me and possibly feel bad that their (Person Q's) package was not as fabulous as mine ;-). But if you don't worry as much as I do aren't worried about that, you are welcome to claim your package in the comments!

I hope this Lovely Person speaks up so I can harass them for their homemade bath stuff recipes!!!
