I Do Not Have a Cookie Guard

I visit my Dad often, but Sunday is the day I bring my dad a large package of cookies. Dad really enjoys those cookies during the week! I keep the cookies I buy for Dad in my husband's home office. When my husband is here, he keeps watch over those cookies for Dad because my husband is well aware of my sweet tooth. On two occasions, the cookies meant for Dad have disappeared from my husband's office when he went to the gym. My husband knew I ate them, and I had to endure quite a bit of good-natured teasing from him about my lack of will power. I do not want to endure good-natured teasing again, therefore, each Sunday package of cookies has remained untouched by me due to being located in my husband's home office. My husband has been out of town for 4 days so far. I ate Dad's cookies. I have no one here to guard Dad's cookies, and I ate them all. It only took me two nights to eat all of the cookies meant for Dad. Until my husband's return, I will have to purchase Dad's cookies on the way to my Sunday visit with him. No way could I eat a full-size package of cookies during the 3-minute drive to Dad's residence!

He will be back Tuesday, thank goodness. However, I will just buy a package on the way to seeing Dad on Sunday. Life is hard for sweet-tooth people.

These were the round shortbread cookies drizzled in chocolate, but I would have eaten all the Chips Ahoy too.

@Corbin5 I love that shortbread with chocolate drizzles on them! They are delicious! I don't know if I can eat a package in two days, but I can eat one in a week!! You made me hungry, and I have a box from the Wal Mart bakery of snickerdoodles! I already finished the sugar cookies I bought at the same place! I am dangerous in the bakery and sweets section of the grocery store! I just developed the sweet tooth about a few months ago!

@Marty1 Oh, you are a cookie monster too, but you are not as big a cookie monster as I am. I will be glad when my cookie guard arrives home on Tuesday.

I have a weakness for cookies too, though we call them biscuits. If there are any in the house, I will eat them.

Yes, if I am here alone, and the cookies are in the house, I will eat them. Will be glad when the guard comes home.

Funny, but I don't have much of a sweet tooth. I'd be happy to guard them for you. They will remain untouched.

I should do a test drive and see if it is possible to eat a package of cookies while driving for 5 minutes. Fun to give that a try.

I could do a test drive and see if I could eat all those cookies before I get to Dad's. It would be fun to give it a try.

You'll have to get into that habit of picking them up on your way, or put them in the deep freezer, you might be less tempted if they are frozen.

I think picking them up on the way is the method I will use since I drive right by the grocery store on my way.

Well, I could do a test drive to Dad's residence and see if I can eat an entire package in 3 minutes. That would be an enjoyable experiment for me.

Poor you. I feel your satisfied pain. A few weeks ago I almost talked myself into making a batch of sugar cookies for my Mom. That would have meant I buy and bring butter and sugar into my house- a huge and I mean huge uh oh for my busy hands. Instead I slipped a little book into an envelope and mailed that to my Mom. Its a book that is mostly lovely paintings- charming and humorous and really a kid's book but great for adults, too. I addressed the envelope to both my Mom and the sister who she lives with, saying that they could read the book together. Mom sent me a little letter back, saying that sister had shared the book with her and they'd had a good time. And I got off the sugar-butter hook. I have more in the series that I plan to send, every month or so.

That gift of the book worked out really well for you. I do not bake due to the fact I eat the majority of what I bake.

Oh yes, a cookie monster I am. The cookies are the only sweets we have in the house due to sweets being so well loved by me. When the cookies are well-guarded, then all is well.

Put a couple spiders in the drawer with them. They won't eat the cookies, but neither will you.

A brilliant idea!! I can just take the package from the drawer with tongs, give the package a shake, and I am good to go.

@Corbin5 So I take it Molly likes to travel. So is Molly your husband's guard dog. It is quiet and nice or lonely without them around?

@Hannihar Molly loves to travel. She just sits and looks out the car windows for a while, and then she takes naps. If she has to go to the bathroom, she just taps my husband on the shoulder with her paw.

I do have some will power but if someone stresses me enough and they are enough to stress anyone to the limits I grab a couple of biscuits too sometimes. Never mind they must have been really good cookies too.

Oh goodness, you really need help and I understand you so well. When I make cookies it's hard to resist to eat at least one. The smell from the oven is too tempting.

@Corbin5 I fear that I cannot find something sweet that I hate. I bring all the chocolate bars and chocolates downstairs in the basement, at least they are out of view, but when I go down for my weekly laundry they are so close.

@LadyDuck Oh, dear. Yes, doing the laundry puts you in danger. I wish I could just eat a tiny bit of sweets every day, but I seem to eat a bit too much if sweets are in the house.

@Corbin5 Sorry, but these things, like stealing cookies, are usually "things" for children. But I understand you, your throat, you know ... I think these cookies for you are something irresistible! Am I right?

@alberello75 Oh yes, anything sweet is something that is hard for me to avoid. We do not keep sweets in the house because I would eat far too many of those sweets. All sweets are irresistible to me, so it is best not to buy them, except for Dad.
