Working on My Fitness...and Other Updates.

I got my butt out of bed this morning and worked out to Jillian Michaels: 6 Week Six-Pack and holy cow I swear I almost passed out. I better keep it up though! I thought I read somewhere that Jillian Michaels said to keep going unless you faint or die (you never know with the internet...) so let's hope it doesn't get to that point. I have this bad habit of NOT working out because it's just boring to me, and not because I'm a super fit rockstar or anything, I just strongly dislike the repetitive movements and lack of immediate results. I'm going to have to figure out what motivates me so I can keep going.

Dollhouse: what a pain. Part of the problem is I have to drive a half hour across town to work on it since we don't have the space here to hide it. The rest of the problem lies in the type of wood that was used to build it. While absolutely stunning without the marker and writing we added for decor as kids, the wood doesn't take to paint very well. You can see the wood grain even after six coats! I used craft paint, but I'm debating if I should buy wallpaper instead, or paint stripes in the rooms to distract the eyes from the texture of the walls. I only have 12 more days until Christmas, YIKES!

De-Monster Spray: works like a charm. B has had only one excuse in the last couple days (she can't fall asleep) but no fits or tantrums as before! (I feel like a genius, even though it wasn't an original idea of mine...next time I'd like to go all out as Happy Life Crafty Wife did here.)

Happy Tuesday!
