There are endless activities people do to make themselves feel better. Some people clean, and unfortunately for this house, I could care less about what my house looks or smells like on most days. (Go ahead, judge me and wrinkle up your nose in disgust, I deserve it!)
Some people, like my husband, find ways to let their imagination help them escape reality. He'll play computer and video games, or simply sit and read a good book. I can't get into the games, but occasionally I'll sit down and try to read. I never seem to be able to finish a book though. Between getting interrupted a million times (I'm not being dramatic. Nope, not me!) by my children, and my horrible habit of reading the last chapter after I get a few pages into the book (I want to make sure I'll like the ending), I hardly ever finish a book. It's more frustrating than relaxing to me...
Other people just like to get out of the house and shop. First problem with this is it's no fun to shop when you don't have extra money to spend. Second problem would be that I avoid being pushed into social situations at all cost these days. Needless to say, venturing into people-ville on my own is a joke.
So what is it that you do Danielle(besides blogging)?
So glad you asked...
I like being able to take my frustration or anger, and turn it into something productive and yummy! Here are some of the cakes I've made over the last couple of months... I wonder if these cakes could be the reason I'm having such a hard time losing my baby belly?!
So there you have it. This is what I do when I'm needing a break from reality. It keeps my hands moving and my mind occupied. Not to mention the added bonus of a tasty treat (let's forget about the extra time on the treadmill I'll have to do to burn it off).
What do you do? I'd love to hear what makes YOU feel better.
