Hi, my name is Marie de Haan and it has been 12 days since I have had any sugar.

I need to find a sugar sponsor. Any takers? This is what your life will be like:

5:00 p.m. “Yes, this is Marie de Haan and I’m sitting in front of a plate of cream puffs. Please come save me from myself.”

6:00 p.m. “This is Marie de Haan again. The haystack cookies that I made 13 days ago are calling me from the outside freezer and I can hear them loud and clear. Got ear muffs and a muzzle?”

7:00 p.m. “Yes, Marie de Haan here. Oh. I’m sorry. Am I bugging you? It’s just that there’s some Haagen-Dazs Cherry Vanilla ice cream in the freezer and well, cherries are fruit, and I’m thinking that fruits are good for me… hello? hello? hellooooo…”

  1. Hey, my computer found your blog again! I don’t think it likes me very much most of the time. So glad to hear about your book. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy when they get it all put together. Take care and remember one day at a time. This goes for sugar too:)

  2. Betty,

    My computer hates me on a regular basis.

    I’m glad to hear about my book, too. Waited a long time for that to happen and “had” to get cancer for it to come to pass. : )

    The book is coming in “7-10 business days.”

    Going without sugar through the holidays… that’s going to be interesting.

  3. I’d LOVE to be your sugar sponsor Marie!! That way I can spend more time with you… we can play Christmas carols on the piano and knit and keep your hands busy so you won’t be stuffing sugar in your mouth… cathy :)

  4. Cathy,

    I just saw this today (November 21). Darn. I’ve needed you these past weeks!!

    Knitting. Sounds good to me. Much better than quilting, that’s for sure. It didn’t like me.
