Can I have Some Cheese with my Whine?

March has been a rough month. Details don't matter, just know it was the perfect storm of crap. I feel like the whole month just whooshed by yet each day seems a week and a half long. I won't complain because some months/weeks/days are like that and something good is just around the corner - like good weather on a weekend for once, terra cotta warriors, Bon Jovi, my favorite holiday (Easter), and a whole mess of things.

What do you do to cope with the stress of life? I'm finding that I've been powering down at home which helps relax me and balance out the running around at work - not to mention I've made it my mission to clear out my DVR playlist and have been making such progress which gives me a sense of accomplishment and I'm only watching tv! I find listening to upbeat music (right now, Jay-Z/Linkin Park) helps keep my energy up (not to mention God's gift to me, Diet Coke). I also find, when things get out of control, that I look forward. Nothing lasts forever, just need to tackle the issue at hand and look forward to what's next. Even when life's most difficult challenges leave me feeling helpless, it helps to know I can be doing something even if that something is acknowledging that I can't do anything or all I can do is stay out of the way. I also like looking pretty. It seems shallow, but if I feel good, it makes me more confident. Unfortunately, feeling good internally backfired as I wore my new shoes and now my feet kind of hurt, but I haven't fallen (then again, I haven't had any chocolate martinis either).

so is crying not a good option for dealing with the stress of life?!? :) I do find that getting out with Marley for a good walk helps a LOT. Especially not that its tolerable to be outside.

March is always such a rough month. Long, no breaks and crazy weather. But spring IS on the way and it should help brighten things up!
