Having a really awful, horrible, very bad evening. Do you have a ritual or activity that you do when you are feeling blue?

I pray. But since it's entirely likely you're not religious, music, book reading, talking to a friend or watching my favorite movie helps out a LOT. I sincerely hope your night goes better

I often just listen to music, which calms me down a lot. Or read a good book. And (I am pretty religious) I usually pray to calm down.

I'm sorry you're not having a good evening, I hope it has improved from the time you posted the poll.

I ate a lot of junk food and cried. It helped quite a bit. :)

Yay! I'm glad that you're happier and yummy junk food with a good cry can do the truck sometimes

I pigged out on potato salad last night felt so ashamed of myself.

I am not going to beat myself up for pigging out, even though I've been trying to eat better. I needed food therapy tonight! A back rub would've been nice too but candy is cheaper. Lol.

My sympathy for having a bad evening. I hate seeing people cry. Hope you have a great day today.

Workout, cardio: a good sweat and a sense of accomplishment go a long way. Then, I long hot shower to rinse it all away.

3 fingers of single-malt on ice, my favorite pipe with a nice mellow blend, and go sit on my cabin porch in the rocking chair absorbing nature's ambiance.

I put things in perspective. One of my friends lost her six-month-old great-grandson yesterday. A freezer full of food not such a big loss.

I'm very sorry to hear that, Tops. Your poor friend. I cannot fathom losing a child.

Thank you my group is just so sad for her loss. They got the phone call that he was sick and not going to make it so they flew out and got there in time to say goodbye. He died in his mama's arms.

I'm sorry to hear that. When my husband went to get fish out he found out somebody had unplugged our deep-freeze. Not for a happy evening. Sometimes deep breathing and or chocolate work.

Log on to xkcd.com. Look at comics until you see one featuring a guy with a black hat. Do what he's doing.

Or try one of the hobbies.

Stare into a mirror, looking alternatively sad and grumpy until you get the giggles. :-)

I used to make the little son of my friends do something like that. He would stick out his lower lip & look all pouty. I had him stand in front of a mirror & told him to stick his lip out farther... farther... farther. He ALWAYS end up laughing.

And I'd forgotten that until now... it was about 26 years ago. So thanks for nudging the memory out of the depths of my brain.

Curl up on the couch with my bloodhound & watch something with vampires, werewolves, witches, or ghosts in it.

I work in a medical laboratory inside a hospital. I have to be awake and ready to draw blood at 5 am. I normally work evenings, but not on the holiday. The good news is I will get off at 5 pm so I can spend the 4th with my family.

The bad news is that I always work evenings so I'm wide awake when I need to be sleeping!!

Hopefully it isn't too crazy on Friday. But it probably will be; no one wants to go to the ER on holidays.

I am lucky, I have a 3-day weekend after tomorrow. And then I am going on a weeklong vacation the week after next. :)

We are on the Oregon Coast by the sand dunes. Fool's choose to go riding drunk going up and down the dunes. They don't pay attention to what they're doing or where they're going, tragedies happen that way. They sometimes go to the hospital.
