Several Things....

Several things can bring me comfort when I am desperately in need of comforting.

  • Jergens lotion but not just any Jergens. It has to be Cherry Almond Classic Scent. It reminds me of my deceased grandmother. When I am really down I rub this lotion all over my body, wrap up in the quilt she made me, and sleep off the depression.
  • Silver01TA- The man is liquid sunshine.  When I think my world is over he simply calls me and it makes it all better.
  • The sound of a special man’s voice on the other end of the phone.  He is so in control of things and that helps me to realize that he won’t let anything happen to me so I focus on me.
  • Dairy Queen Ice Cream- Again a reminder of my childhood.
  • My puppy- He gives me cold nose Eskimo kisses first thing every morning and every night before bed.  No matter what I do he loves me for me and never lets me down.


Those are the things I depend on to comfort me.  How about you?  What is your comfort?

I hear tell that real men even use Jergens Cherry Almond scent.

I like to relax at home with some take out like chinese or something and watching a good movie to take my mind off day to day stress!

I love the smell of the original Jergens lotion the cherry almond smell! I have a huge bottle of it that I use all the time!

Cuddling up with someone I love and watching a movie with no plans to go anywhere!! Just being with someone is comfort enough:-)

I knew it Eric. Oh well at least it smells<br />
<br />
I love hot showers too but they get me too excited. lol

Hmm I would have to sleep and alot of warmth like a hot steamy shower or something :)<br />
Always works for me.

FOR EVERYTHING! YEAH BABY!!! Kidding of course...<br />
I do use it for my arms and legs. Eric hates to be all ashy!

OMG Eric may I ask how you use Jergens? ((fungirl blushes deep red))

I may be a dude, but I use Jergens Cherry Almond! lol How cool...

CBU, thanks. u 2 Dan

Music... music that relates to my situation though... :P

Talking to my best friend-same here a simple message makes me feel better, it really is the little things that can mean the most,.<br />
Music-in particular Kelly Clarkson, her music is so relatable for me.<br />

Johnny, With the lights twinkling in the background and the fuzzy rug under my butt. I could get into that fantasy. MMMM<br />
<br />
Sunny, there are two kinds of clam chowder I know of and they are so different but both delicious. Manhattan is "tomatoey" and delicious while New England is cream based and yummy. I prefer the New England version but it is all good to fungirl. And you knew something like spotted D*ck was certainly going in fungirl's mouth. I did enjoy it. It is too rich to eat everyday but it was good.

GR, Fungirl does have a white noise machine that I take with me when I travel to the "big city."

MMM Princess.. or New England Clam Chowder with a special friend... not that canned crap either the real deal mmmm<br />
<br />
Sunny, That is why I am here to remind you darling. MMM anyone for spotted d*ck... I actually tried this Sunny and it tastes pretty good.<br />
<br />
HBY, It will happen.... MMMM almonds but without the chocolate for fungirl please... <br />
<br />
Where is Snowy bun buns and Sooner today? I miss my partners in crime.

I know it will. Patience and perserverance will get us there... It is just so hard sometimes... Dark chocolate covered almonds anyone? lol

Atlanta, That is a great way to gain comfort.<br />
<br />
Silver, I knew that but I had to push some buttons. You do the same every time you get a chance. <br />
<br />
Kinda, That is a beautiful thought as well. Anyone special you want to share the ride with or is this an alone moment for you?<br />
<br />
Sunny, MMMM that is all beautiful... I love Chicken Pot Pie. It reminds me of my mother and brings tears to my eyes. I am just glad you didn't mention spotted D*ck. LOL<br />
<br />
Destry, No boxed mac in cheese for fungirl either. I love hugging my nieces and nephews and can't wait to do it again. <br />
<br />
HBY, Patience and you will have him 24/7 darling. . . I know you feel his love. . . Some relationships just have transcend time and distance and you have one of those. It will all work out in time. ily girl.

Right now the only place I am feeling entirely comfortable is in the arms of my Honey... too bad his arms aren't a bit longer and could reach me from way over there! lol

Cool tunes on the car stereo, SILLY volume of course, and the long open road. Thinking at its best.

Hey now!<br />
<br />
One of my best memories is being at the 2005 National Championship game and watching Vince Young take over the game. That one always makes me feel warm and fuzzy on the inside.

A nice warm fire crackling away on a bitterly cold night, lying in the arms of my husband with a glass of chilled wine!

LOL. Yeah an hour later the ice cream was all gone.

Awww Silver.. there you go with the ice cream again. . . I put that picture of the ice cream on my work computer because it makes me smile. MMMMM<br />
<br />
One thing that makes me giggle (although it is comforting when my boys play them lol) is to hear VY give an interview and realize he is not very intelligent lol. Satan is on my shoulder darling and he made me do it. lol

That is peaceful as well lion. thanks for sharing.

Lets see....<br />
<br />
comfort.....<br />
<br />
A nice bottle of scotch.<br />
A bowl of "Take the Cake" Ice Cream<br />
A home made meal from mom's kicthen<br />
Reliving great memories (which could also be dangerous).

I feel that way too FGV, I love to get in a vehicle and drive. . .<br />
<br />
Gem, thanks for sharing.<br />
<br />
HS, thanks to you as well.

Hop in my sports car, pick out a song like Sailing, by Christopher Cross or Why, by Annie Lennox and cruise the countryside.

I think that for me, all that does it is a very long, very tight hug from my husband, whispering kind words and telling me that everything will be ok. That i'm not alone.
