Faerietale Happiness Challenge: The Cranky Report

In yesterday's post, I talked about the simple happiness of spring cleaning and said that cleaning is a gift that keeps on giving. What I didn't say is that it can be an expensive one! Especially for someone who has CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome).

After an enthusiastic burst of spring cleaning, the next day, I am not only tired but a wee bit cranky, as well. What to do about the tiredness and tension and irritability?

I slept in a bit, and decided not to push it. But I also created a plan for at least two things that will create happiness but not require a lot of energy. One was a favorite TV show. The other was quiet time, watching the trees sway in the breeze, listening to the ocean waves on my sound machine and doing a bit of nothing for a while.

Daily simple happiness rating? Well, overall, a 4. Not as high as I would like. But it did have a few 7 and 8 moments!

How was your day?

Have a wonderful weekend!

What if you could finally heal
whatever is blocking you from the faerietale life
that's waiting for you?



  1. Wow! I have to say, reading your post was relaxing. That picture done me in lol! Love your blog!

    1. Thanks, Liz! How nice of you. I'm glad it was relaxing!

  2. Sometimes we just need to stop and smell the roses. Isn't it amazing how easily we can forget that happiness is simple?
    Thanks for the reminder. Keep relaxing today and have a wonderful and magical day.

    1. Hi Beverly! It really IS an important reminder. I forget all too often! Hope you have had a wonderful weekend and that tomorrow will be magical for you, too.
