I'm here to tell you that cleaning the house doesn't fix it.
Staring at the computer because you don't have any words? Also not fixing it.
Taking a shower doesn't fix it either, but at least you'll smell nice.
Exercise helps, a little, as long as you're actually doing it, but it's not a solution so much as a temporary patch, a band-aid.
But do you know? Listening to 3 kindergarten-aged boys chatter over their plates of lunch (mac-n-cheeze, carrot sticks, apple juice and those pink-and-white frosted animal cookies with sprinkles), giggling and planning and plotting and snorting? That helps. A lot.
