Therapy Thursday ~ and boy do I need it!

Is it really only Thursday? I wouldn't know - I've been in the house all week with two sick kids and a dog with a nasty case of the runs (he got into the cat's food - my bad). And just a few minutes ago our poor kitty had a seizure. He is diabetic, and occasionally will suffer a seizure if his numbers are off. This was a pretty bad one and it took me a while to snap him out of it. Corn syrup on his tongue and lots more food in his belly, and he's doing much better. But while he is experiencing an episode, he sprays uncontrollably. I was lucky in the sense that this time he was on the hard floor, so clean-up was a little quicker. But, as I'm sure you can imagine, my house needs some freshening up! And I could use a bit of aroma-therapy (and a drink, but it's only 9:30 in the morning). So I lit my Monkey Farts candle from DavesHomemade and it's starting to smell much better in here. Don't let the name "Monky Farts" scare you - it's not what you think. These candles have a "unique complex fragrance is anything but disgusting! Fragrance begins with top notes of fresh bananas and juicy grapefruit, middle notes of kiwi, juicy bubblegum, and strawberries; and a hint of vanilla as a base note," according to their description. And I have to concur - yummy!

But my candle is getting low, and I already gave the other one I bought as a gift. So now I think I'll treat myself to some shopping therapy. I'll make my hubby happy in the process, because I'm going for the Fall Trio, which includes Pumpkin Pie, Hot Apple Pie and Gingerbread Cookie (all my hubby's faves - and no calories!).

Happy Thursday to me!

What are you doing on this gloomy Thursday to stay upbeat?
