I don't know about you but I've been paralyzed by snow– both mentally and physically.  My dog is getting fat from the lack of walks and I've resorted to eating chocolate syrup right from the bottle, no ice cream needed.

Thinking about February vacation for this Betty is futile, the work-imposed stay-cation has only added to the stress and quite honestly thoughts of The Shining are more than fleeting as I review the weather forecast. 

We sure hope many of you are heading to an organized winter wonderland {skiing} or to tropical bliss but if not, here are a few things to do aside from the usual suspects. Find it all HERE>
