I am struggling Prairie Friends. Struggling to get through another Wisconsin winter. Usually by March I am ready to gnaw off my arm and blow torch my sweaters. This year I am doing things differently so I can smoothly transition into Spring without personal drama.
Prairie Eydie's Top Tips to Get Through The Winter PART ONE
Take an interest in football, if only for a limited time. (Your interest can even be insincere!) I jumped on the Packer bandwagon for two weeks this January.
- Packers vs. Bears. Who doesn't love it when the fans act like big, fat babies?
- Packers vs. San Fransico 49ers. Very close game. I thought the Packers could win even after the game was over and done.

I used to worry football wouldn't be fun because I had no idea what was going on. Nonsense. Just be happy when the players are happy. Be angry when your coach is angry. Be aware your home team scored a touchdown when the bartender gives you a free shot. Accessorize with a Packer boa. Fun & Flirty.

Make every Friday FABULOUS Friday and Not "Wear A Sweatshirt and Stained Yoga Pants" Friday.
I find Friday the perfect day to put on a cute dress and accessorize with a fairly heavy hand. Everyone is looking "schlumpy" so you will look extra, super-duper good in comparison.
Tiaras are optional.
Plus, why not end the work week feeling good about yourself? Looking good erases missed deadlines and stupid comments made during staff meetings. I have found that coworkers are joining me in Fabulous Friday because they don't want to be outdone. (No. I am not saying that women are competitive. I am just . . . saying. . . )
