Cookies anyone?

Anyone care to join me for some chocolate chip cookies?

I've been in full scale funk mode since rumors of this month's referral batch started. When I'm in a funk, healthy eating tends to go out the window and sweets start looking really good. When the cravings started kicking in this evening, I thought about the I Can Make You Thin guy from the TLC show and his wacky trigger point tapping technique for about one nanosecond right before I put the cookies into the oven. Oh well, so much for that show!

So, who else is totally funked out with this month's news? Five days...give me a break! After the last two 8 day batches I was having visions of actually getting a referral in September. Ha, that vision has faded and now I'm getting a sinking feeling that October or November is looking more likely. Just thinking of getting through another Christmas without our daughter is making me nauseous...wait, or is that the plate of chocolate chip cookies. Hmmmm....

Aww I'm sorry. I may pull up a plate with you. Here's hoping that rumor is wrong and it's many more days.

Those cookies look so good. I'll be having a drink with mine...do you think we'll ever get a referral?

I saw that show! Wasn't that hilarious???

I'm not even in line anymore, and this month's cutoff date has got me bummed out. I'd help you eat those chocolate chip cookies, my friend.

Not only am I sorry, I'm disgusted that "they" are allowing this to happen. Thinking of you.....

Catherine said...

Praying things will change next month or at least in June. The spring referral dips we've seen for the past 3 years are not fun!! This year friend....this year for you!!!

I LOVE Chocolate chip cookies! They are my favorite indulgence and boy, have I been indulging the past week! I was kind of thinking you are very optimistic with an Oct guess. Fine with me! I was pessimistically thinking possible referral Dec/Jan. Prove me wrong! =) Munch...munch...munch....

Your cookies look fantastic! I've got some store-bought choc chip cookies in the cupboard... now I need some!!! Yours like much better though!

I will have a cookie or two... I haven't had one in quiet a while... take care and fingers crossed...

I did my first grad school internship with someone who swore by that tapping technique (I forget the name of it). Some people swear by it, Donna.

I'm not one of them. I think it's wacky too!

Anne said...

Just made some chocolate chip cookies here, also. Those adopting from Vietnam need their fair share of comfort foods, too.

Aunt Donna,
You're making me really hungry!

P.S. If you buy those giant tubs of Nestle cookie dough, you can get like 3,000 cookies! Personally, I think the dough is better raw!
