Days of wine and.... FOOD

It's already started. FOOD OVERKILL. This is the time of year when food starts pouring into the office, friends invite you to dinner, holiday parties are everywhere, etc. My problem is that I have no willpower. None. Last night I baked cookies for my Knitter's Guild cookie exchange and I ate a bunch of them right off the cookie sheet and then a few for breakfast this morning. I get totally out of control this time of year. Our guild is having a party tonight so I guess I'll just pig out there too. Ugh!

I'm really out of it today because I took two Tylenol PM last night to help me sleep. That stuff works like a dream (no pun intended) but it makes for a groggy morning. But I get so stressed out this time of year that I have no choice if I want to get any sleep.

No knitting to report. My husband took the day off yesterday and brought down all the Christmas decorations and they are scattered everywhere waiting to be put where they belong so it could be a while until I'm able to sit and knit. He also rearranged the furniture and now my little knitting corner on our loveseat is in a totally new location without my usual proximity to the televison or the light. He moved a chair to that location and I just don't think a chair there is going to cut it for me. I cannot spread all my stuff out on a chair. (MEN!) I have to finish Kelly's socks. Then I'm finished with Christmas knitting. I wanted to get a few other gifts done but that isn't going to happen. You can only do what you can do.

Well, I better run. My goal for today is to stay awake and stop stuffing food in my mouth. Wish me luck.

Holly, I can relate when it comes to eating and cookies. I need a stomach pump too.
