Offense #1: eating two ok, five chocolate chip cookies today. YES I said 5 and no they aren’t small. This is what happens when a chocoholic is put on a very low sweet diet and then makes cookies for her hard working husband. Who isn’t home to help stop her. My bad for making them- but I promised the wee E- and I don’t go back on promises to her if I can help it! Oh, but the cookies are soooo good. I put them all in the freezer, which you might think will help me tomorrow. It won’t. I *LOOOOVE* frozen or near frozen chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. uh oh.
Wish me luck tomorrow…
The funny thing is that I probably have 3lbs of chocolate in this house- but it doesn’t tempt me. No, in it’s raw state I can resist so long as it’s not one of “those” days. Ok, moving on-
Offense #2: Having SCARY stacks of work to do and instead settling in for the last (gulp) 4 hours to read chapters 4-end of “Bitter is the new Black”. Do I love Jen? Oh yes. Can I wait for my flight to St. Paul when I read her next book? Hardly. www.jennsylvania.com and her style is so NOT for everyone- but I love her truly. Her memoirs will be cherished on my bookshelf.
So WHY did I read her book tonight? Because I found it while cleaning up some stuff in search of my class project which needs finishing but is buried somewhere. Oh- and I was already 75 pages in (last week- when still sick I started it). so I figured “one or two chapters wouldn’t hurt”. However- like the cookies mentioned above- when I bite into a good book I’m gone. So I wonder how it’s 1030pm now, and yet the dishes are undone and NONE of my “after the girls fall asleep” tasks have been completed. huh. weird.
Confession #1 (of the hour): I’m an old lady who can not be productive past 10pm*. I blame my children. Of course- I wouldn’t have it any other way. But sometimes my super-human power to work late into night (after spending hours reading instead of working) would REALLY be fabulous. Ah well, I have other super powers, and I’ll use them tomorrow…
*I can read a book or zone out on TV or movies. but can’t “do” anything. body quits at 10pm.
