Janet's stress recipe

June 23, 2008

A 12-step recipe for irritating those around you and reaching your target heart rate without exercise:
(guaranteed to be as exciting as a days worth of my tweets)

1) Wake up too early.
2) Drink a pot of coffee before 9 AM.
3) Wake everyone else up in the household later than you said you would.
4) Have no milk in the refrigerator.
5) Sit down at the computer and note that the blue screen says “dumping physical memory.”
6) Curse. Reboot. Go make an english muffin with chocolate on it.
7) Open the document you were working on and decide which version should be ‘recovered.’
8 ) Take a shower. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
9) Get to work just as the kids get home early from school. Curse. Repeat. Curse. Repeat.
10) Make like a lioness and provide food for offspring.
11) Work for about 2 hours. Drink two diet Pepsi’s.
12) Check heart rate and blog about it.

    Alternatively, wake up too late and run around like a headless chicken, yelling a everyone and achieving very little. That works, too.
