I'm getting nervous about the dinner party/ cookie exchange this Sunday. I think I'll look and feel good in my new dress. I'm sure it will be a fabulous, indulgent dinner with great wine and I have no doubt I'll thoroughly enjoy it.
What I'm scared about is after the party. Last year I came home with about 3 dozen assorted cookies, brownies, and cake balls. I know I can/should be strong but I'll have at least 2 glasses of wine in me, so all my inhibitions will be down the pooper. And I know I could abstain from the wine but I have extreme social anxiety so I can't imagine enjoying myself if I don't have some wine (my social anxiety stems from being morbidly obese and extraordinarily insecure and I know I need therapy).
I guess my plan will be to try to get as little take-home treats as possible, only eat the ones I love the best, then give away the rest. I can't have then in my house! Too dangerous!
