Hello from a fellow 'dependant wife.'
Relief to me is a long soak in a bubble bath, a good book, some quiet time sitting outside in the sunshine (we can finally do that here in Jersey now that the weather is changing - thank you, God), petting my cats, playing with my baby (when he giggles it makes my spirit soar), and when in doubt for a stress-buster, a good long walk or jog around the block. Shutting off CNN helps reduce my stress level too.
MST is a ******* RIOT! LOL I laughed so hard the first time I saw that, the robots just crack me up.
God bless ya, I am sorry to hear about your aunt and I hope your hubby comes home soon!
