After a long, tiring, stressful day, I came home and made a strong cup of coffee.
Next, I made some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
Now usually when I make cookies, I can’t leave them alone. I can easily eat six or seven. However, I tried two of them, and they just didn’t taste all that good to me. Don’t get me wrong — there was nothing wrong with them. I made them just like I always do, but I think my taste buds are burned out on holiday sweets. DD told me the cookies were some of the best I’ve made. I was quite pleased that they didn’t taste all that good to me because I wouldn’t be tempted to gorge on them.
Once done with the cookies, I worked out to one of my Shaun T DVDs.
While cooling down from my workout, I had a large glass of carrot juice.
I said, “Now THIS tastes GOOD!!!!” It tasted so much better to me than the cookies did. Woohoo! I never thought I’d say that carrot juice tasted better than chocolate!
I got supper ready for the others, but I just wanted my juice, a small container of yogurt, a small piece of a Hawaiian roll, then I headed in to take a nice hot bath.
DD is bored with Christmas break so she actually started school today. I just finished going over her school work for today. Now we are watching Raiders of the Lost Ark for her Movies as Literature course.
I’m hoping I wind down soon. Bedtime isn’t too far away, but I’m still rather wired from the caffeine and invigorating workout I had this evening!
