How do you handle your temper?

I have an almost two year old who is the most amazing daughter. But I let my temper get the best of me and I yell sometimes and I don't like what I say. I do not and will not ever raise my hand to her, save for a bop on the butt if she continues to do something unsafe. Anyway I am usually a really patient person but lately I've been losing my cool. It's no excuse the amount of stress I'm / we're under. Our family of tgree just moved out of state from everyone we know for my husband's job. She really is adjusting well. I guess it is me who is not. The "take a break" and "count to ten" kind of advice doesn't cut it. Any other advice or anythng about not being so hard on yourself would be greatly appreciatedn at the very least, thanks for listening. I don't really have anyone to talk to. I don't want to worry my husband since he is an over the road truck driver and is under enough pressure already.

    Try going on a walk or something to get the endorphins flowing . Since I started bike riding a week ago, my irrational anger has simmered down SO much. I was angry all of the time, couldn't control my temper, everything got to me (we just moved away from everyone we know, too, far away) and I had no one to turn to. The exercise has really taken it to a better level of calm.

            I have been thinking of finding a sitter so I can just go see a movie or something by myself. But then I feel guilty. It's weird, like I shouldn't be away from her for something like that. I used to have a full time job and had to have someone watch her and a part of me felt guilty for even that. But as guilty as I feel about wanting to get away for a mom break, I think she needs one too. Maybe it is for the best, I mean a few hours can't hurt right?
