Cabin Fever

We are STILL tucked in, huddling up by the space heater and checking out the window every once in a while to see if the ice is going away.

It's not.

We will, in fact, have our THIRD snow day tomorrow. All day we were trying to guess what would happen for Thursday, but I truly thought we would only end up with a snow day. I thought there was a slight chance they would have us go in to the office for a few hours and then let us leave early, but I really never dreamed that we would get lucky enough to get another day off.

When we got the email telling us the news, we did our happy dance again... but it was definitely shorter than it's been the past two nights. Cabin fever has officially set in and I'm afraid I will go crazy if I don't at least leave the house for a few minutes tomorrow.

There is one side effect of cabin fever that could do me in: the uncontrollable munchies! We are really only hungry at the normal eating ours, yet I have such a strong, overwhelming desire to eat anything in sight and to only consume Diet Dr. Pepper. Ok, I must clarify that... I don't want to eat anything in sight. I want to eat everything unhealthy: pizza, Reece's, ice cream... I was all prepared to make my grandmother's famous chocolate sheet cake today but I didn't have enough powdered sugar for the icing. Which is the biggest blessing in the world, because I probably could have eaten half of the cake all on my own. {Which would be so horrible for me because the cake and icing use about 3 sticks of butter! Explains why it's so good, huh?}

The main reason this over eating is a problem is because I'm supposed to be on a Major Vacation Diet (MVD). I haven't blogged about it yet, but we were so blessed to get a grand finale family vacation for Christmas! Come June, we'll be flying out and spending a week at the beautiful Beaches Resort in Turks and Caicos. Up until Tuesday, I had lost about 3 lbs and was starting to feel a little muscle definition. Sadly... a few days on the couch have demolished that feeling... now I'm just feeling very round!

Here's hoping we get a ray of sunshine tomorrow and maybe some of the ice will melt away. If I'm not able to get out of the house, I think I'm going to crank up the heater and walk around the house in my swimsuit to keep from eating everything in sight!

Happy Cabin Fever!
