I am having a “sad/blues kind of day.” I had surgery on my eyes a week ago (healing ok), and spent the last week off work, recuperating and spending time with FH (we are in a LDR). I just got back last night to a ton of mail, including several bills, having to straighten out my health insurance (dentist didn’t bill it correctly to my insurance so now charging me), and a notice from the IRS about discrepancies (I checked our taxes and discussed with my friend who is an accountant- it is an IRS mistake, but still a huge pain). I have an extremely rough week ahead at work, and feeling really sad. I miss FH, but since he is working nights, he is sleeping right now so I can’t call him right now.
How do you cheer yourself up? Thanks!

I buy myself something pretty like a new purse or shoes, or even new jewelry. It doesn’t have to cost a lot, but something new and pretty always makes me feel better.

Usually a combination or one of the following:
- buy myself something smelly (lotion) and have a nice bath
- pour myself a glass of wine
- spend time with my nephew – you just can’t be down around a toddler
- call my BFF and have a marathon chat session
- put on my PJ’s, grab my pillows and a blanket and watch crappy reality TV on the couch
- get myself a hot fudge sundae from MacDees

Depending on the type/reason for my blues, I will do one or more of the following:
Bake something delicious and eat half the dough/batter while I’m making it
Go for a run
Call a friend or my mom
Meet up with a friend for coffee or a drink
Read a good book
Go to some of my fav comic sites (xkcd, hyperbolie and a half, hark! a vagrant, Cake Wrecks, Fail Blog, damnyouautocorrect, cute overload)

I have a long hot bath with a trashy romance novel. If I’m feeling really indulgent I’ll also take a box of chocolates and a half-bottle of dessert wine on ice in to enjoy while I soak.

Im so sorry!! I hope your feeling better from surgery! I know how shiftwork goes I am on dayshift and my Fiance is on nightshift so I totally understand the whole sleeping through the day thing and then working at night. I am currently working because I am now on days and hes sleeping because he works nightshift so when I get home hes going in… it sucks!!! And every two months it rotates and Ill go on nights and he goes on days so its always like this…So needless to say, after the weekend and 3 days of working I really miss him. However, on nights when I have the next day off and he is working Ill call up my friends and invite them over for wine night and just do nothign but girl talk!! I find laughing to be the best medicine 🙂 Try to surround yourself with positive and happy people!
I do get in my moods where I just want to be by myself and Ill go to the gym or go to the beach or somethign. Working out is my all time stress reliever…
I hope you feel better!!
