Stressing Out!

How do you manage stress?

I feel like I do a pretty good job of it on a day to day basis - but then once in awhile everything seems to pile up at once and the end result is Joanne = basket case!

Yeah, I'm being a little melodramatic, but you know the feeling right? When you hit breaking point?

What with our car drama, Bella being sick (again!) and off to her second vet appointment in a week, a HUGE grant due for Carol's Ferals by end of day tomorrow, my Statistics meeting this evening, plus just general allergies and fatigue on my part... I'm all over the place today!

Obviously there could be WAY worse things going on in our lives. This is all relatively trivial. I don't mean to be a brat and complain... but everyone needs to whine sometimes, right?!

It's hard to find your center and ground yourselves in times like these.

What do YOU do to keep your stress in check?

Sorry to hear you're so stressed out, I can definitely relate these days! The thing that always works for me (other than breaking down in tears) is taking a nice long hot bubble bath- this has become a part of my daily routine these days!

After throwing a tantrum I usually say a prayer and call a friend.
