I always sort of dread the week after Christmas. I feel kind of....well....sick....after days and days of baking and eating yummy things with way too much sugar. The stress of hosting family for the holidays always tends to encourage my consumption of the self-medicating substance. Although if you put a bowl of some sort of crunchy, salty combination in front of me it can also soothe my frazzled nerves. Oh who am I kidding....many times I've indulged in the sweet only to then find myself digging for something salty to "balance" it out, LOL!
So today is the day when I go cold turkey and prepare myself for the inevitable withdrawal. When I don't eat sugar...I don't want it...am fine without it. A little chocolate here and there I can deal with but after the holiday sugar blitz it is a little harder to get it under control:-)
And then there are the decorations! Yesterday, hubby asked if I wanted to start putting things away. I feel like I just barely got done getting the house ready so decided to wait another day....maybe tomorrow even:-)
Hmmmm....as I sit here looking at all the decorations that must now be put away I'm feeling a little........anxious.........and those little round cookies covered in powdered sugar are really yummy with a cup of coffee......
