Happy Pills

Today I was telling (read: complaining to) some friends about how I have been on my last nerve with my kids these past few days. It has just been one of those weeks, you know? Where your oldest breaks into hysterical tears whenever things don't go her way, and your youngest keeps doing naughty things like painting herself with pudding, coloring on the couch with marker, and taking off her diaper in the middle of the night. On top of that, Mike has been traveling a ton this month (thank goodness it is coming to an end today!) and that always makes things tougher when I am facing it all alone.
Anyway, in our conversation I mentioned that I could use some happy pills today. Jokingly, of course. ;) Well, awhile later there was a knock at my door and my friend was standing there. "Here are some 'happy pills' for you, she said, and then handed me this:

Oh, that's the sweetest thing ever. I wish we were close enough for me to be able to drop off some "happy pills" when you need them! And vice versa, of course. Haha. I guess I could mail you some?...not the same. Love you!!!
