How to Journal When Sick

Dsc_0035_31. Be thankful you have pre-painted pages in your journal, for the blank white page can be a bit intimidating.

2. Curl up on couch with puppy dog, cup of tea, and copy of "Ever After" on DVD (so cheap last week at Borders!).

3. Pull out markers, crayons, and scissors.

4. Draw birds and swirls and all sorts of dots. Doodling is best when your face is puffy, nose stuffed, and body all achy.

5. Doodle some more. Because it helps keep your mind off things.

6. Nap. ;)
