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…
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?
