Stuff That Makes Me Feel Better When I'm Grumpy

Let's get started, shall we?

1.  Carbs...really, really starchy ones--Really, is there anything more soothing for a grumptastic mood than a big, steaming bowl of mac and cheese?  Or creamy pasta?  No, I think not.
2.  A massage--The Boyfriend is good at these, but sometimes, I'll throw in the cash to let a professional at this stupid neck of mine.  How can you be grumpy when someone is literally smoothing your stress away?  That's right...YOU CAN'T.
3.  Cleaning--Yeah, I'm one of THOSE weird ones.  A picked up, clean-smelling space always does wonders for my mood.  Like, I feel like if I can eat off my super-spotless toilet seat, maybe not all is wrong with the world.
4.  Finishing a long over-due project--I was supposed to file those bills months ago, and I sure don't want to do it NOW when I hate the world, but somehow, getting a little project like that done makes me think that maybe I don't hate the world so much after all.
5.  A nap--I posted on Twitter the other day that men think about sex every seven seconds, but I think about naps.  And it's (mostly) true!  I'm a girl that needs her sleep, so even just a little twenty minuter can do wonders for my mood.

What about you?  How do you get over a grumpy mood?

I love #5 - I'm a big nap-advocate, sometimes its all you need!

And when it's not, espresso and puppy cuddles is a good back up plan =)

I think we are soulmates. ALL of those things make me feel amazing! Especially cleaning. (I'm one of THOSE, too.)

I like (need) to be left alone at home on my couch, in silence, with a book and a steaming cup of Chai tea. And have my cat beside me. It helps if if there's a huge storm (rain is good, thunder is better, snow is the best), brewing outside. All of a suddent, I find peace.
