Yes, it's two days after that; I'm back on the original transcription site (but being a lot more careful so as not to get rejections again!) plus found a couple of other places to work.

And even though today is another cloudy day, I'm feeling a lot less "SAD"!

Depressed but did not binge!

Last night, as well as most of today, I was depressed because I had had several files rejected at a site where I do online transcription. This brought my rejection rate up to the point where I am now blocked from doing proofreading and reviews, which paid the most money. So I was depressed about tha...

This may sound very old-fashioned, but... why keep any snacks at all at home ? Just don't buy them ! Sorry I didn't see this earlier to respond to it. I have two answers for you: first, not everyone in your home may be on board with your "No S" plan, so they are bound to want to keep their snacks a...

What if you are just physically not feeling well and don't want to eat a lot? For example, this morning: I'm recuperating from some emotional stress (family melodrama!) and woke up with a sore back (very obviously stress-related). I did go out and do my 14 minutes of exercise - a little shovelglove ...

The Would-Be Drum Majorette Move

OK, here's a move I came up with, because I was watching the classic movie musical "The Music Man" the other day: I hoist my (admittedly very lightweight) shovelglove into the air, and march around the back yard, pretending it's a baton and I'm the beautiful blonde ponytailed drum majorette, leading...

I come to enjoy settling down with it when I read or watch, just as much as the snack...

Thanks!

I think the reason it needs to be coffee or tea, instead of water, for me (hey, that rhymes!) is that it needs to be some kind of "treat" - something I can consume slowly while reading.

It just feels *weird* to me to read a book and not have something to sip/munch on - ya know?
