Well, last night's near-loss for the Seattle Seahawks was a little disappointing, but the game was so close that it was still fun to be there in person. Unfortunately, the slight sore throats and crackling ears my husband and I had on Friday, developed into full-blown colds for the both of us on the drive/ferry trip home last night.
I'm thankful that my *stress-reliever* is cooking, so we have a freezer full of homemade soups, chili, etc.
I'd have to say, I'm not one of those people who loves cooking. When I'm tired, it's just about the last thing I want to do, yet whenever I've got big problems milling around in my head, my first instinct is to cook something... often several things at a time which is nice, but leaves the kitchen as a war-zone.
When you're battling stress, whether from family illness, deadlines, friends, work, unemployment, naughty kids, etc, what do you do to get rid of your stress? ...and what do your characters do when you throw a whole pack of hurdles and troubles their way?
