This would be a good day to indulge in one of your fave pastimes: Getting organized. There are toys and games strewn hither and yon. Figure out a system, and it will be much easier for your little to keep things in order.
Things seem to make more sense today -- so roll with it and enjoy. The good part is that your certainty doesn't feel like bossiness or fundamentalism, and others are more willing to follow along.
Thinking too much about a problem may just be making it worse today. The same goes for your diet. Counting calories may be rationalizing something more basic: you eat too much. Get your dinner served in a half-portion tonight, wait 20 minutes and only eat more if you really are hungry.
What's the big rush? If you're shopping, make sure you slow down and browse. You might find, smell or see something that changes your idea of how you should dress or what you can and can't pull off. Pay attention to the subtleties.
