As part of the Biggest Loser challenge we are supposed to post about stress and how we cope over the holidays. I don't have holiday stress or every day stress. I don't have kids, I don't work, we don't have any holiday parties or dinners because there is no holiday here. This country forbids Christmas and displays etc.
Daily stress? not really, not much to stress about unless you count what will I do during the day, which I do find things to do. About the only time I stress is when I have to deal with my aging parents and their nagging me about why my kids don't call them or when am I coming home to the USA. Then there is the stress of when I fly, which I have no control over flight departures, number of people on the plane, will my luggage be there when I land?
If I do have stress, I walk it off, drink water, and think it through and figure out how to deal with it.
On another rant today, I am so frustrated that I cant find things I want for baking here, no peppermint extract, no almond extract, no anise extract, no minced, dried fruit for German Christmas Stollen, no mince pie fillilng, no powdered sugar/icing sugar, no ribbon candy, no traditional hard candies, no candy canes, BAH HUMBUG!! Makes me wish I could do a turn around flight (leave here on Wednesday morning flight that lands in the USA at 11AM and returning on Wednesday night's flight that leaves the USA at 8PM) gives me enough time to go to a grocery store or a SuperWalMart in the NYC area and get what I need.
I've also enjoyed doing cross stitching lately!
