Can't Relax

My husband just left for the day and usually I am able to use this time to relax a bit. Today, even though it is a beautiful Saturday morning, I am laying on the coach frantically trying to figure out how I am going to pay all the bills this month and still have money for food and gas and my husbands co-pays. Do any of you have similar problems relaxing, even when you have the chance? Any tips other then drinking? It's only 9:15! Tongue

I find going for a walk or reading really helpful to relax.

I am doing everything in my power to prevent another huge anxiety attack today. I find distraction works best. Get lost in something. If I just sit and think too much it sends me right over the edge. It's the weekend, cut lose and do something fun.

So I decided to go jogging, something that would make me so tired that I couldn't be stressed. Then I got a call from the gas company telling me I need to be around the house to wait for a technician who would come sometime between 10am and 8pm! So now I am stuck at home.

I did do some pilates from a dvd I had and I think I am going to craft for a few hours an watch old movies from the 50's. I was able to extend the payment for one of the bills I was freaking out about, so I get to feed us for the month after all.

I did kind of snap at the gas company guy. I am hoping sewing will sooth my nerves. Do you have anything you can do that is crafty Damsel? I find that crafts really help me.
