    I almost zipped by your thread. I thought it was a Minimus post !

    Note to cj...hey did ya see what Fe203girl replied ?

    My relaxation therapy is find a buddy, with a white unmarked van, and take my Super Soaker water gun, and go out and "splash" unsuspecting dubs on street corner work.

    Just kiddin, but the thought has crossed my mind.!

    I like to kick back with good friends and have nice dinner and perhaps a few drinks. I also like to take my dogs for walks...that's always good to decompress

    Well, for general relaxation I have my Thunder Riderhe can relieve what ever stress I am feeling LOL I have my art which is a great stress reliever, I read alot and love to sleep which I am very good at I also like to take bubble baths in my claw foot bath tub. In summer I am an avid gardener Thunder usually calls me "dirty girl" since he is use to seeing me spotless all the time he gets a kick out of me with dirt all over my face etc.

    For vacation relaxation, we go to Colorado<Nathrop area> and I love Florida especially the Keys, Thunder and I are seriously considering moving there soon.

    Well, I ended up dragging Big Tex (he didn't protest much) to a sushi restaurant we hadn't tried before. It's called Blue Fish and has 2-for-1 sushi at lunch, and it is yummy! And we sipped green tea and talked and enjoyed what is turning into a beautiful day, all golden sun and cool breezes. It was very relaxing and we both enjoyed being able to complete sentences without little ones interrupting.

    I love all of your posts! Especially the ones that talk about being anywhere near a beach - that's GUARANTEED relaxation for me. However, since I'm in landlocked Dallas with enough debt to keep me off the airlines, I'll just have to make do.

    May all of you have a wonderful, relaxing day, or, in the case of us working moms, at least ten minutes of uninterrupted time in the bathroom.

    Love to all,

    I like long walks with the dog, working with my plants...transplanting, grafting and rooting, and going for motorcycle rides. YeeeHaaaa

    Reading these threads relax me. (Reading anything generally has that effect on me). T.V. does also.

    Having my wife give me a long and deep back massage followed immediately by sweaty snugglebunnies relaxes me.

    When I need to relax I remove myself from all forms of activity, sounds, etc. I retreat into the quiet & stillness and I stay in it for a while.

    Take some time for yourselves, you and your hubby deserve it!

    Bubblebaths with pretty candles everywhere are my favorite way to relax, followed by snuggling, a glass of wine, my favorite coffee or a hot cup of tea.

    Sometimes I find that if I step into a room that doesnt contain my children, I instantly relax.

    I cant imagine why.
