Therapy, Part Deux

So I've been thinking about what's therapeutic in my life, and have come up with a list of some things that make me sunshiney when I'm a tad blue. (Not really blue, blue like bummed. You probably knew that, but it is Friday, so I thought I'd clear it up, just to be sure.)

  • Writing, of course
  • Playing with Photoshop, drawing, being creative
  • Curling up on the couch with some coffee if it's cold and Diet Coke if it's warm, and a good book
  • Journaling
  • Smallville (I know, I know. It's cheesy and predictable and filled with horrible lines and unrequited high school love. But it has some golden moments, I have some great memories associated with watching the first couple of seasons, and I do love the Man of Steel.)
  • Driving PCH (Preferably without traffic... hint, hint, road construction)
  • A good talk with a good girlfriend, my mom or Adam
  • Ice cream. Always.
  • Flowers. Also always.
  • Cleaning the house. (I think this proves I have a dormant housewife inside somewhere - remember the mom on The Emperor's New Groove? "I need to clean something!")
  • Tanning. Whether it's laying on the beach, at the pool, or even fake baking, acquiring skin cancer and great legs at the same time is AWESOME.
  • Showers. I love showers. I think it kinda comes hand-in-hand with my soap/shampoo/smelly things fetish.
  • So, I'll admit it. Trying new (expensive and smelly) soap/shampoo makes me happy.
  • Hot tubs. I don't get to do this often enough. But when I do....
  • Swimming in ocean/kayaking/being outside is great. I don't know if it should technically be listed as therapy, since I don't exactly finish a hard day at work and think, "I'm gonna go take a dip!" But maybe I should start. Anyway, it's all awesome and should be included in every list.
  • Cooking for someone who appreciates it. (Adam)
  • Shopping. I know! I'm such a girl. I... like to shop. I'm trying to come up with excuses, but I can't. I know it's pathetic and OC-ish of me. I'm sorry. But I do like it.

I could so use any one of your therapy regimes right now! That is, except for talking to Adam (it just wouldn't have the same effect) and hot tubs (never was one for slimy and warm at the same time; one or the other, not both.)
Have a beautiful, therapeutic, happy weekend, girl!
