Five days after the arrival of Oma’s xmas package we finally reached the end of the goodies. You’ll be surprised how fast chocolate can go in this home..lol I thought, good! The temptation is gone..over! I have been going out of my way in the stores to avoid this stuff. It has tempted me for weeks now and sometimes I give in but I have been trying to at least be reasonable. Having boxes full of the stuff doesn’t help.
So yesterday evening as I finished the last cookie from that package the doorbell rings. It’s another xmas package! *face palm* My father in law sent us a package and we thought yay! It must be wine since he sent us a lovely box last year. Well, it was a little different this year. More chocolate, marzipan goodies, cookies and a lovely bottle of Moët champagne. It will be lovely to ring in the new year with that! He also offered to buy us our first lawn mower..or a sheep! lol He will send that out to us next year once we are moved into the new house. I’m kind of hoping for the sheep!
I also know it won’t be long until my mother in law sends us a package too. I feel so helpless right now. I said I would eat whatever I wanted this month without guilt but I was trying to eat sensibly at least. I was hoping to do it without boxes of chocolates and cookies knocking at my door. This isn’t the best time of year for me and having all of this comfort food at home is not good. I’ve resorted to having my husband put these boxes up high on shelves so I won’t just have them easily available whenever I walk into the kitchen. I forgot to make him do this before he left for work. Great.
I’ve gone up 3 kilos since the chocolate fest began too. I can’t wait for either the world to end in 2 days (lol fat chance!) or new years to come and have no more of these temptations around me anymore. Hope you are all doing much better than me in temptation central.
