What Do You Find Therapeutic?

    Okay, so maybe not exactly therapeutic. Maybe, relaxing?

    I have a friend who swears he finds doing dishes by hand is therapeutic.

    Me? Well, the Mrs. Incaviglia and I are expecting and we're doing the baby's room in Winnie the Pooh theme (her call, not mine. Although we've agreed if it's a boy I can start the "sports changeover" quickly). To save some cash, instead of buying those wall sticker things I decided to buy a coloring book and Crayola crayons and color 8X10 "photos" of the old bear and frame them in old frames I had in the closet.

    I gotta tell you, coloring is AWESOME. I'm 30. And coloring rules! There. I said it.

    I also collect baseball cards, and I love just sitting at the kitchen table and putting sets in order. I get lost in it.

    Anyone else have some weird things that relax you?

    first sexual comment by post five.....

    I actually enjoy mowing the lawn. Enjoy the outdoors, the look of a freshly mown yard, etc. A very serene experience from my view.

    therapeutic....putting needles in voodoo dolls of people I hate or who are pissing me off. :D

    Pooping. Oh wait, wrong thread.

    I agree Captain_Kirk, mowing the lawn can be very relaxing, except when it is a 110 out and you can't get the damn mower to start and you feel like you might have a coronary pulling on that stupid little rope over and over.

    True, when the temps hit the 'holy fuck, it's hot out' range, it does lose some of its luster.....

    We live in an apartment now but I used to find there was nothing better than listening to a ball game on the radio and working in my vegetable garden. My tomatoes were 4H worthy.

    There's a man in downtown LA who gives shoeshines that last about 20 minutes. Pure bliss.

    I second the yard-work-as-therapy thought. I'm the only homeowner on my block who takes care of his own yard -- even the Hispanic guy across the street laughs at me and says "hell, even I don't mow my own yard!"
