I guess I should add that I'm an ALL or Nothing at ALL
kinda gal. Christmas wrapping in my teenage years included eggnog, chocolate turtles and Christmas music. I can't have just one chocolate. Maybe I could, but I don't trust myself so I avoid all treats. It's been so long, I'm afraid I would eat half the box.
I think this was the first Christmas that Santa didn't put a box of Cracker Jacks or Lucky Elephant Popcorn in my stocking. (I always gave it to my friend's kids.)
Sometimes I have "gorging dreams" where I'm raiding someone elses fridge at stuffing birthday cake and other things into my mouth. I can taste them in my dream - believe me. I wake up with a jolt and a sigh of relief knowing it was just a dream.
