It was really cold yesterday, so I tripled up on my layers for warmth. I wore a t shirt under the sweatshirt and the jacket is made of extremely heavy wool. I was ok with it, seriously ok, UNTIL I volunteered to serve popcorn at lunch and found myself manning the popcorn machine. Wow those things kick off a lot of heat, which then triggered a hot flash, which then made me miserable for a chunk of time during the day. People got their popcorn though. Gave it to them with a smile!

Sorry for the lack of postings lately. I've been uninspired with my outfits and haven't wanted to unleash that misery on the blogosphere. It has been so cold here this past week that we've all been throwing on however many layers are needed to just stay warm. It was literally minus 7 Friday morning when I left for work and that wasn't with the wind chill. The kids haven't been in school since Tuesday and it's not looking good for tomorrow either. Insult to injury was the stupid snowstorm yesterday that unleashed about 6 inches of snow on us effectively trapping us in the house all day and canceling all of our plans. And we were going to the car show too and I love the car show. GRRRRR.
I was reading an article this week on how to look fashionable when the weather is cold. The author literally said that you can layer a jean jacket over stuff and still stay warm. Yeah, try doing that in an Ohio winter and say goodbye to the body parts that they can't save from the frostbite. I draw the line at being cold. I don't care what I look like in my winter outerwear so long as I am warm.

I'm done with winter, so I'm breaking out spring clothes and pairing them with winter separates. I find it amusing that at the end of summer, I'm itching to wear comfy, snuggly sweaters and by this point in winter, I want to bust out short sleeves. I'm never happy!

I cannot stand having bangs in my eyes, so every six weeks I have to get my hair trimmed. Today, I was so mad at my hair, I let my hair dresser have at it. We also dyed it. I am very pleased with the outcome!
Sorry for going dark on you this past week. I seem to have an uncanny ability to download viruses onto my laptop and Dave had to fix it. We have malware, but I am really good at getting around that without realizing what I'm doing, unfortunately.

I have no idea why I continue to attempt to wear tan. It is NOT my color. It washes my already vampire pale skin out and looks horrible on me. While checking the shot yesterday, I decided there was no way I was going to wear this all day and feel bad, so I ran back to my bedroom and threw on a black jacket instead. I felt much better about the outfit the rest of the day!
