my climber

This last week I have spent most of my time removing Sadie from our table, or a chair or a dresser. Sometimes I am too late and she tumbles...hopefully this new climbing "activity" will not cause her any permanant damage down the road. I guess I will need to turn all my chairs on their sides and live like an animal.

my disgusting confession

In case you are wondering what this is, it is a lump of (almost) half eaten snicker-doodle cookie dough. I started to make these cookies on Tueseday in hopes of passing them out on Valentine's day. After I mixed all the ingredients I wrapped it in plastic wrap to chill. I then got too busy to finish them off and bake them. I pulled the dough out Tues. night and nibbled at it, then Wed. I pulled it out and nibbled some more...Then Thurs. and now Friday....As I was holding a piece of delicious cold snicker-doodle dough at my lips this morning, I had the sudden urge to throw it against the wall.
What have I become?
When it comes to sugar, I am at its mercy. Sugar has a profound effect on me that I have yet to overcome. I am disgusted that I ate so much of this plop of dough. I would sneek bites b/c I did not want Michael to know what I was doing. I was ashamed. Would he think I was like an animal, ravounesly eating in the dark? Audrey asked me what that dough was, and I told her it was for bread. Would she want to eat some of my "precious", that I hovered over? I am like an addict, hiding my secret. Hopefully I can get this monkey off my back....eventually. But at this stage in my life, I still need my sugar high:)

my organizer

I have always appreciated the festidiousness of Audrey. She is an impecible orgainzer. This has always amazed me, her ability to be so meticulous when arrainging her "treasures". I mean, look at the Barbie shoe line up...that is impressive. However she has adapted the old adage "out of site, out of mind" when I ask her to clean up or put clothes away. I am constantly finding mounds of items secretly stashed under her bed, in dresser drawers, or thrown in her closet. When I finally discover said items, I make her put everything away, under my supervision...but where does the stashing habit come from? She is always in a rush, perhaps that has something to do with it. Well, in the meantime, I will appreciate her obsessively compulsive organizing. Perhaps her pick-up skills with catch up someday.
