I'm Dreaming of the (Entire) Pumpkin Pie
Monday, November 23, 2009
See, this is one of the things that separate me from "normal" (yes, what is NORMAL?) people. At some point, I'll be near a pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving. And instead of allowing myself one piece, I'm thinking that I can have the entire thing. After all, I erroneously reason, I've been good all year and it's been a very tough one. So, hey, don't I deserve it?
What kind of thinking is that after all my hard work? Up until a few years ago, I was able to eat that pie and not gain a pound. But that was then, and this is now. Even as I write this, I am smiling and wondering how I could be such a hog! Then I swing from the whole thing, to none at all. Yup, I still have a lot of hard work ahead of me with this all or none thinking.
Have a wonderful day.
