    Fixing a hot cuppa coffee, and coming here to view the "jokes and funny stories" forum for starters....

    and checking the threads to see how much worse off others are than myself... helps put things in perspective.

    I'm not a nurse yet, but my job is still stressful, and my department is not really appreciated by the rest of the company. So...

    I listen to music, read, go to the gym, walk my dog. Oh, and during the school year I sing with a large professional chorus--that is VERY theraputic.

    Couldn't agree more, Mel ! aah, yes...

    "...sing thanx for the morning, sing thanx for the day,
    remember to sing when things don't go your way!

    ...sing with your smile and sing through your tears,
    the song in your heart will add LIFE to your years!

    ...for a heart filled with song which was born of the soul
    is a heart full of joy that never grows old...................."

    I go to bed and dream to destress!

    After working almost thirteen hours in a day, all I can do is rest my first night and day off work. After I'm rested up, I take myself out to eat, shop at outlets where I can walk around outside, or if the weather is bad, I shop at the malls. Sometimes I go alone, sometimes I go with a friend.

    I also may take in a matinee movie...hopefully a funny one like Legally Blond II. Loved that movie! Well worth seeing if you haven't seen it.

    Cup of hot herb tea is good too before bed. Speaking of "bed", sleep is calling me. Gotta work tomorrow. Nighty night all!

    I LOVE my friends. Spending time with them keeps me grounded. Love to garden, go out to eat at a nice restaurant (hey I can finally afford something different than the dollar menu). Love to listen to music, read the paper.

    I love surfin the net, reading a good book, listening to CD's (with a candle lit and a cup of butterfinger hot chocolate in my hand).

    Or... get the house picked up and kiddo's to bed, put on a no brainer chick flick ( wedding planner, kate and leopold) and just watch.... and relax...

    Music is most therapeutic to me. Also surfing the web and reading and my friends and family are most important. Another thing I do, living in this beautiful Ocean State surrounded by water is take a short drive to the ocean or bay, look at the boats, walk on the beach and hear the waves crash. Ahhh..it's lovely
