The Chrysalis Project

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.

You go, girl!

Annemarie said...

Sounds good! I'll meet you at the MAC counter.

I need to try that, too. I am so cranky these days, and I know it's the post-winter funk. Might as well make some good come out of it, right?

I remember an oatmeal facial that ended in disaster. Do NOT wash it off in the tub, where it might clog the drain and get you grounded . . .(again.) Other than that, have fun!

So I take it that I shouldn't add your name to my ESPN March Madness Bracket Challenge?

We have to recognize and congratulate ourselves for all accomplishments no matter how small, or whether someone else can notice them or not!

Oh, you're so good. I have the spring bug right now, too. A desire to look better and clean, clean, clean!

Annie said...

Such a good attitude! I'll meet you at MAC, too.

Rochelle, I can not relate.

I hope at the end of March that my wings are smaller.
