how do you deal with a bad day?

this is my coping strategy...

Why did I have a bad day you may ask? (ok I know you guys aren't asking, but I'm still going to tell you.)

Anyways, back to the question.  Let me just start the list...

1.  I am incredibly stressed....tooo much to do (sell our home, fill out paperwork to buy our new home, tons of work obligations, Rhett's leaving me on saturday, my house is a wreck, etc. etc. etc.)

2.  After my house being burglarized, my insurance agent basically told me to tell the adjuster that the computer that was stolen was mine (it was not, it was our house sitter's).  During the recorded conversation with the adjuster, I told him my agent told me to lie to them, but I couldn't do that and look at myself in the mirror.  Well apparently my agent is mad about that and changing his story saying that he never told me to lie to to the adjuster.  He is trying to make me feel bad, and has advised me to find another agent.  I'm upset because I wanted to already have different coverage by now, and be able to call him and say that I was switching coverage (not the other way around).

3.  No one would return my phone calls today, whether they were prospective insurance people or mortgage lenders.

4.  I needed 10 more hours today to get everything done that I needed too.

ok seriously...I'm just a big baby.  But I do feel better now that I have complained, and that my tummy is full of ice creamy deliciousness.

I hope you all had a better day!

MMmm, I haven't had ice cream in SO long! I'm sorry you have had such a crummy day. I hope your insurance guy stops being such a pain!

:( stupid agent! He shouldn't have told you to lie in the first place!

Hmm how do I cope with stress? Ice cream or chocolate usually helps. Crying does too.

Hope your week improved. We'll see you Saturday!

Jeeze what a total mess! I hope it all gets figured out soon! I think it's great that you didn't lie ;)

That ice cream looks amazing!
Hope you have a better day today!

Sorry about your day. Hope everything starts going better for you.

Thats about how I fix my crummy days too.

Chocolate is a valid and effective medication for stress. I believe that studies have proven this and we both know how trustworthy studies are!

ooohhh, I'm sorry you had such a bad day! I've had some of those, and it is NOT fun! Luckily, I know, as you obviously do too, that chocolate fixes most things :D Maybe not fixes it, but it is definately not good to try to deal with everything without it! Andy has learned this about me, and tells people that when I'm freaking out, they should just give me chocolate :D what a good husband! I hope your day is better tomorrow!
