I am soooooo tired. I don’t know if it’s due to the fact that yesterday I was in such an exuberant, high-spirited mood or because last night the wind was howling outside my window so loud it literally woke me up (I’m thinking probably the latter) but I am one exhausted puppy. No, wait. THIS is one exhausted puppy:
Look at his smooshy little face, teehee. I don’t think that Daxter necessarily got a full night’s sleep either due to my constant tossing, turning, and pillow-over-my-ear-ing but hey, at least he gets to sleep in for the rest of the day! Harry, however, was not phased. In fact, I don’t think the big lug moved an inch the entire night:
In my next life, I want to come back as one of my dogs.
Anyway, as you can probably tell, life in general has been a sleepy struggle this morning. There has fortunately been one bright light in my morning so far, though:
That’s right! Girl Scout Cookie Season has arrived! I supported my coworker’s daughter by purchasing all of the worst cookies available: Samoas, Tagalongs, and Thin Mints. Thin Mints are pretty deceptive in their terrible-for-you-ness, actually. You know, what with the word “Thin” in the title and all. Oh well, good thing I have a brother and a couple o’ roommates at home who I’m sure will help me out. And those FAT Mints are headed straight for the freezer (is there anything in this life better than a frozen Thin Mint?) to be slooooowly chipped away at over the course of the next several months. Actually, not sure if it’s gross or not, but I think that our household may have just finished off the last couple of Thin Mints from LAST year not too long ago!
I believe that this will be a good challenge for myself to exercise portioning and control. While I’m trying to get away from the mentality of thinking of food as a reward (or, conversely, punishment) I do think that indulging in a single cookie or two that I love (and that supports those little girls in their green berets to boot!) every now and then is not a bad thing. Just gotta be aware of the caloric count and work it into my daily total! Frankly, I think it’s already a sign of how far I’ve come that the boxes are still sitting in a neat little stack on my desk and haven’t been ripped open and inhaled yet. Progress!
Question of the Day: What is your favorite Girl Scout cookie? Buy any boxes this year? Already eaten through a couple of ‘em? (I’m looking at you, Bethany!)
