Hi

One of my stress relievers is to get on CafeMom and help other ladies.

Also, doing my hobbies which are: scrap-booking, crotching, taking pictures, walking now that the weather permits, playing in the pool with my grandsons, watching good movies which are love stories, mysteries, and comedy, plus reading (since I own a book club). Another is talking to friends, on my cell phone...the ones who bring a smile on my face and I can share anything and they are always there for me.

Some of my hobbies are stress relievers. I make handmade jewelry, I like to make random little arts & crafts things, and I write...whether it be letters, just noting things down or journaling.

when things aren't going well ... maybe I'll try going for a walk, calling a friend, spend some time online ... maybe watch a movie, or just write

 Other hobbies I enjoy are reading and scrapbooking

I draw , paint..do paper crafts..( of course those are to make money sometimes..HA! not nearly enough..lol) I love paper crafts!! Making cards is my fav..I don't scrap book though..I am trying to get on a Design team ..( I think it would be fun and help with my business as well)

I also LOVE to read! My husband and I are HUGE readers, and we kinda make it a priority with our kids too... I like to cook..but I like making new things, and experimenting,I am a really healthy eater( I know..I know..the whole Diet Coke addiction is not so great, BUT I do think they are now saying that dark chocolate is supposed to be good for you...????) I love to bake..bread..cakes...desserts.....I like to grill and make healthy food for my family...I love to write and do daily. I love my journal!!(s)...I love walking and try to do that daily , if I am physically able.

I love movie night with my kids, and date night my honey...I like playing games with my kids..and swimming. I LOVE to swim..

I like sewing and am looking forward to doing more of it when we move and I can get my "studio" set back up. I love making my clothes and stuff for the girls..

I draw and I walk, sometimes i struggle with the urge to cut (no its not a hobby lol) depends on what the stressor is. I even have to be careful with my walks if I'm upset I can walk till my feet blister and I'm ready to collapse but now i take my dogs with me and i wont hurt them so it makes me shorten my walk.

 Yes, i use a dvd i got at walmart and it's called Element, AM & PM Yoga for Beginners and i think it's great, i've gotten really into it - and it really does help calm my nerves and help me stretch my muscles out cause i get really tense - i would definatley reccomend it and i believe it was only like 10$ at walmart
