I'm sorry you're having so much trouble this weekend. Here are the things I do, which sometimes help:

1. I compulsively read bulletin boards online. After PsychoBabble, I read Knitter's Review, and if necessary move on to Sewing Pattern Review, too. If that's still not enough, I find Wikipedia can also be quite helpful as a distraction.

2. I lie down on the sofa, and pull a quilt over my head, and stay there until I can't stay there anymore. (Frankly, this is by far the most useful for me...)

3. These are the moments that I most appreciate Extended Cable -- even if I can't find anything to watch, searching the listings and cursing about the lack of anything watchable helps.

4. Children's books. Great escapes, and don't take a lot of concentration.

5. Knitting. Just, make sure you're not using this opportunity to try out the latest lace weight in that fabulous Frost Flower stitch pattern. (Go ahead, ask me how I know this one...)

6. Meditation. I don't do "real" meditation, I just do the "sit in chair and repeat to myself that I will survive this." I'm not sure how helpful it is, but it contains it at least.

I hope there's something helpful in there. And I hope you feel better soon.
