In a funk…

Short post tonight, I’ve been feeling a little down the past few days.  It’s a combination of PMS, Joe leaving for a week tomorrow, stress about quitting my job and feeling lonely here in Korea.  I know I have a lot of things to be happy and grateful for but I’m just having a few hard days.

Some things to be thankful for:

An awesome stationery swap package from AfricanKelli.  She had no way of knowing that I love Frida Kahlo, or that I write notes ALL THE TIME.  Just look at that adorable owl card.  She also sent a wonderful CD for me to listen to while crafting.  I think she can read my mind because KT Tunstall and Sarah McLachlan were on my MP3 player when I popped in her CD.  Thanks Kelli.

And while we’re on the topic of how awesome Kelli is, check out the Flickr group she created for CAOK or Calculated Acts of Kindness, 40 days of kind deeds towards friends or strangers.

My CAOK yesterday was this package I got ready for my old students in Florida to reward them for their big FCAT tests in a few weeks.

Another awesome package I receivedthe other day was from Sima.  It is so hard to get good American craft magazines here in Korea so Sima came to my rescue.

WIPS – Lunch bag from Knitty for a secret someone and Amy Butler’s Ultimate Arts & Crafts Tote.

Hopefully I will be feeling better tomorrow, although I doubt it with hubby leaving at 6 AM.  You’d think with his prior deployments of 6 months at a time, a week would be no problem but I miss him the same whether it’s 1 week or 24. 😦


One thought on “In a funk…

  1. Sorry to hear about the funk. Your recent mail goodies look like a lot of fun & your treats for your former students look like a fun way to celebrate their testing. 🙂
