Do Tell: What do you do When you Need a Break?

Everyone needs a break from time to time, whether it's from your job, your family, your friends, or everything combined. While we know how you choose to blow off steam, what I want to know is what do you do when you just need a break? Are you the type that gets in the car to hit the open road, or do you go stay with friends for a long weekend? Ladies, do tell, what is your escape plan when you have just had enough?

That depends. Sometimes I just like to stay home and other times I like a long road trip; like 1800 miles. Love that!

Driving is the best! I roll down the windows, crank up the music and enjoy the world I never get to see (because I'm always at work)

I usually take off somewhere. It could be to the local mall or my favorite painting place to paint some pottery. I just need to get away and be alone with my thoughts.

I don't usually do anything, which usually results in me being very testy and getting into a lot of fights with my husband. Hmmm, maybe I should work on that?

When i need a break...I usualyl don't take lots lol. But if I REALLY need a good break, then I go somewhere for the wekend with my bf usually and just lay in a HUGE hotel bed the whole time!!!! For a little break, I usually do an at-home pamper day. This happens maybe onceish a week. I take extra long in the shower, scrub my body good, deep condition my hiair, do my nails, soften my feet, slather on tons of body butter, paint my toenails, all that jazz. It perks me up and makes me feel hot too!

I just get in my car and go. I might go see friends, drive up to Vermont, go down the shore or something like that. Really, I just love driving, so any time I can get in my car without having to be anywhere is a break for me :)

I get in my car and drive. Eventually I end up at a mall and spend large amounts of money. If it's something that's really bothering me I need a friend to talk to, and I'll drive any distance to get to them.
