my life just a little bit brighter. You have a wonderful sense of humor. For me, laughter is sometimes the best medicine. When I get down or start to panic over school, money, hubby, family, my health and whatever else life decides to throw at me, I put in an episode of Friends, (have all 10 seasons), an episode of That '70's Show, (have the 1st 3 seasons, anticipating the next ones) or put in Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel, (have all of each of these series). They make me laugh, cry and just let me get away from my own problems for a minute. I also read a book, any book I can get my hands on. My 2 favorite are The Thorn Birds and Gone With the Wind. I find I need time 'away' from myself and this is one of the only ways I can accomplish this. Sometimes I'll call up a friend and talk or we'll go out to lunch/dinner, depending on my mood. Just anything to get things off my chest and to try and stop dwelling.
Janet, you're a peach!
