just call me cookie

my house is driving me a little mental today.

i wrote a blog next door in more detail about my day yesterday….regarding distraction.
today i shall blog about yesterday’s distractions ramifications.

i don’t think i am exaggerating when i say i baked at least 15 dozen cookies yesterday.
from about 7:30pm until 12:30am i was baking.
there are shortbread cookies, ginger bread cookies and chocolate chip cookies all over my kitchen.
hey – when i have a lot on my mind i like to keep busy….what can i say?
i am a little crazy when i have a lot in my heart and in my head.

everywhere i turn in my kitchen i see cookies…both of my fridges are full of cookies
so is my microwave…so is the top of my big fridge…
everywhere.

i do not have a decorating bone in my body…but i gotta say…my gingerbread doods look good.

anyways…i have always been a sentimental person…
preferring a gift from the heart as opposed to something store bought (although please feel free to buy me the ipod touch on my xmas list)
i squealed like a little school girl when my coworker gave me a box of home baked goodies for Christmas
she knew full well they were a no no on my diet…but the fact that she took hours to make these…and with such care and love…well it was one of the best gifts i could get

knowing the time, and care that she put in to my gift…the care even in the wrapping…
bah, i just loved it!

so i thought to myself…self, why have you never done that??
and so last night i did.
the people i love the most will be getting tins of my carbolicious goodness…
and i gotta tell you.  I CAN’T WAIT.
i cannot wait to get these damn cookies out of my home.  remember the blog i wrote about sleep eating???
imagine my hell at the moment.

i did everything right today – pretty much
i ate a healthy breakfast, i worked out, had a salad for dinner
but in between all those things, a couple of cookies made their way to my mouth.

once i deliver these gifts…and begin my real vacation
i shall be free and clear of the evil devil called sugar…
or so i hope.

tonight’s distraction?  drinking wine and wrapping presents.

anyone want a cookie..or 12?

talk about timing

this was the email i received from the universe this morning – and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

no, not health related – sorry.  but i guess we could file it under mental and emotional health.

Have you noticed, goddess, that sadness in your life has never, ever, not even once, lasted?

It’s impossible.

Please pass this on to someone sad, goddess….

Whoohoooooo!
The Universe
