I have a hospital appointment this week, which are starting to become more frequent as I get to the pointy end of this pregnancy.
Over the weekend, I did unearth the key to getting rid of a bad mood. For me, it's fairly simple:
* Time out and lots of laughter. Skip and I went out to dinner with some friends. It was somewhere cool. With cool people. Cool cocktails. You know, the kind of place I never go anymore. Afterwards, we stopped for a nightcap (well, the others did, I sipped on water) and we laughed. And laughed. And laughed. There's nothing like a good belly laugh to make you feel good.
|This punch was literally smokin'. I told you there were cool drinks.|
* Time at the beach with my family. I've said it time and time again on this blog, the beach makes my little family happy. Everyone is at their best. We all just love it so much. An afternoon at the beach totally soothes the soul, it's a pure tonic. It was overcast and we left just before the rain bucketed down, but it was still great.
* Pretty florals. Every year at this time, my neighbour's magnolia tree blooms and it's magnificent. Every time I pull up outside my home I look up and smile. The pretty pink blooms against a blue sky – there's nothing nicer. I wrote about it last year too.
What's your cure for the cranks?
