February is on its way out and it's a good thing. It's time to leave the winter doldrums behind and start thinking...well, I don't know if it's time to start thinking spring yet. That may leave me clinically depressed by St. Patrick's Day. But it's time to start thinking ahead, anyway.

Which means come March, I'm gonna need some new addictions. In February, I was addicted to:

CHOCOLATES: I purposely try to stay away from Valentine's candy. I love it too much. I'll eat an entire bag in one sitting. Unfortunately, my friends and family don't know I'm trying to stay away from it. They only know I love it. And apparently, that's how you show Heather you care about her. By giving her candy.

SUDAFED: I had a cold that I just didn't have time to slow down for at the beginning of the month. Which meant it got worse and worse until I finally was confined to bed for an entire weekend. And it lingered way longer than if I just gave in to it to begin with.

NASONEX: For the same reason.

SOY MILK: Those protein shakes mix up well with soy. And peanut butter. And flax seeds.

MOISTURIZER: The wintry dry skin needs to be slathered into submission. At every opportunity.

I'm hoping in March for no chocolate, no medicine, no excuses. I'm crossing my fingers for an early spring.

God, my fingers are crossed, too. And my toes... legs... eyes...

Heather said...

Amen to both you and Diane... I'm praying for Spring. While, yes, I live in the deep South, I'm still ready for more sunshine and pretty days. :)

I love chocolate too, I may need a 12 step program to rid me of that addiction. LOL

Good luck to you!
