So when "you are stuck with a day that is gray and lonely...(this is a direct line from Annie)" I guess you could "stick out your chin...and grin," but I am going to have to recommend you take a huge bubble bath. And if you can, take a ride on one of its bubbles.
I mean, watch this video and you will know what I am talking about...
"Calgon, takes me away...every time!"
And seriously, it works wonders with stressed out children too (check out two of my boys...yes...there are two boys in that bubblelious tub). Mine seem to really relax after a tough day of me pestering them.
