ice creamAfter her scary fall last week, Pink tweeted to her fans that she can't wait to see her mom.

Says the sore singer,

In 12 hours I get to see my mommy!!!! Its a beautiful thing when your mom is also a nurse, and a drinking buddy. Oh, and a jitterbug partner

She's 30, but I don't think you ever age out of it. l admit it, when I'm feeling absolutely awful I sometimes tell my husband I want my Mom.

So what do you use to make do when Mom isn't around and the meds aren't enough?

How about a few other pick-me-ups for the spirit that work for the rest of the world?

1. Going Outside -- and just sitting there.

2. Giving Something Away -- to get it out of your house.

3. Eating Ice Cream -- straight out of the container.

4. Calling a Friend -- to kvetch.

5. Ignoring the Phone.

6. A Hot Shower.

7. A Warm Bath.

8. A Cool Shower.

9. Shaving Your Legs.

10. Baking Cookies -- just to smell them. 

11. Giving Something to Charity.

12. Screaming.

13. Cuddling With a Puppy at the Pet Store.

14. Singing -- the more out of tune, the better.

15. Wii Boxing.

16. Going to Sleep -- in the middle of the day.

17. Sex.

18. Getting Take-out -- so you don't have to cook.
