March is going to be my chrysalis month, I've decided.
Historically, I have not much enjoyed March. Chilly weather, a traveling husband and nothing but basketball on TV. Blah.
This year will be different. I'm going to use the next four weeks to my advantage. Instead of hibernating and wallowing, I plan to be busy inside my cocoon.
Without a husband to cook for, I can heat Campbell's soup for the kids and treat myself to something light and healthy. I won't drown my loneliness in oatmeal cookie dough, I'll try a homemade oatmeal facial instead. Maybe I'll try a Pilates class or visit my old water aerobics buddies. Plan a trip to the MAC counter. Skip the snack counter.
I know this little third-month makeover will be practically invisible to the naked eye. My After photo will doubtless bear a pretty strong resemblance to Before...
Still. If all that emerges from my chrysalis is a lighter attitude and a bounce in my step, I'll consider March a success.
