I sleep under fresh Egyptian cotton sheets and with a cat by my side. His name is Merlin. He purrs continuously.

I like to relax and snuggle up on the couch for a good movie or two. Playing a computer game, or a console game. I used to go for bike rides until I started living in the big city. It's more stressful to bike here than to walk.. because of all the cars not watching for bikes. So a nice walk would do me good, at night though when the streets aren't teeming with people.

Also like a good bowl of popcorn.. or going to the movies and having a huge bag.. mmmm lol going to see Narnia - Prince Caspian tonight.

What else.. I love relaxing with my kitties back at my parents home when I visit them.

One of the most relaxing things I think that I wish I could do right now is have a backyard bbq with friends and an ice cold drink in my hand.

Exercise really helps calm me down when I'm stressed out.

Oh, me too Foodstorm.. Whenever I am in a really grumpy mood I stomp all the way to the gym and by the time I leave I am all smiles. LOL!

My DH calls cooking my therapy. I also like to sit in my chaise with a glass of red wine while petting/scratching my cockatoo, "Spike"

The more I'm stared at, I turn the volumn up and conduct more dramatically. WHAT FUN!!!
If I have the dog with me, the higher the notes get, he'll start howling too, Then it really gets funny.
"Weiner dog opera".

Really? What about the music?

Our Beagle howls anytime I sing loudly, but maybe that is just my singing?


I don't think I will try the conducting idea, LOL, but sometimes I also go kinda 'nuts' when stressed out and go on a cleaning or better yet organizing spree around the house and garage.
DW doesn't seem to mind the after-effects of a calm husband and a cleaner, neater house!
