Snow Day!!!

Ha!  Mother Nature decided to drop a crap load of snow on us again!  So here I am, snowed in.  The painter is here (I guess the roads were plowed); my little one is playing on the couch; my older one has gone off to a friend's house, and I am contentedly writing my blog. 
I am soooo excited about painting the house!  When we first painted it, very deep, rich colors were all the vogue.  So my palette consisted of burgandys, golds, and beiges.  I must say, I did tire of it rather quickly!

 Now I am doing everything in Antique White.  I LOVE IT!!!  It brightened up the whole house and it is putting me in the mood for spring!  I can't wait to put my furniture back in and decorate. I am leaving the burgandy colors in two of the rooms, so I think the house will be fantastic looking for Valentine's day!  :)  I'll post more pics as soon as it's finished.
For now, I'm enjoying looking out the kitchen window at the soft, white snow. :)

Thoughts on winter, weight loss, and more

This is my first blog.  Being new to the world of blogs, I pretty much have no idea what I'm doing.  So I suppose I'll just write some personal thoughts and a few tidbits about what's been going on in my life.  I can't wait for January to be over!  Too much stress!  My daughter is in tech week for her play and needs to be at the theater every night this week from 6-9.  Also needs to fit in studying for her SATS that she'll be taking in two weeks.  I think at this point I need to let go, and let whatever happens, happen.  I've been overeating as a result of the stress, I guess.  So I have begun a new "eating system" today.  It's called "I Can Make You Thin" and it deals more with hypnotic suggestion, then actually going on a "diet."  I will let you know after two weeks whether or not it is working.  The diet advice is pretty basic, and much like how I used to eat when I was thin.  The rules are to eat what you want, savor the food, and stop when you first feel full.  Sounds easy, right?  Not so much....  I hope the hypnosis CD works!!!
