weekend coping

Who would have thought the weekends would become so long and stressful? It's hard to get answers and get things done after business hours so Josh and I end up sitting around, twiddling our thumbs, waiting for the week to start again. So in order to counteract my mind-at-rest going completely crazy, here's a list of the coping strategies I've used this weekend:

  • sitting on the porch and puppy cuddles
  • reading (although I always find it harder to focus when I'm stressed)
  • lots of kitty cuddles
  • making dinner with my love (one of our favorites: carne asada with homemade guacamole)
  • listening to music
  • .....which also means singing
  • watching movies (one of my favorites is "Something's Gotta Give" but I only watch it every year or two, when I'm really desperate for a good laugh)
  • fidget spinner (sent to me from some dear friends)
  • puzzles (until the cat gets jealous...)
  • cheering on my nephew Ryan from afar, while he competes (and wins!) for a spot at the National Jr. Olympics in track (so proud of him!)
  • coloring
  • painting my nails
  • messing up my nails and painting them again
  • making lists

Not pictured: the disastrous state of my home which I have no motivation to clean. 

So here's to a productive and problem-solving week!
