Yesterday, I went grocery shopping and I made every attempt to not buy a bunch of crap and junk food. I bought snacks just for me. I didn't buy the girls cookies, but I did buy ingredients to makes cookies. That way, there will be cookies when I want them, when I want to indulge. I bought a lot of veggies and fruit. I bought some good stuff!
I was very happy with my grocery trip, well except one thing. At the check out, I was unloading my groceries onto the belt and when I went to grab the syrup... it was sugar free. Can we get an ick? And I had already invested enough time waiting in line at the check out, the syrup was going to have to wait. Hopefully the girls won't be requesting waffles before I make it back to the store.
Okay, so besides the mishap with the syrup, everything was good. I was looking forward to cooking this week and maintaining a healthy and balanced meal plan. And we joined The Y! I'm so excited and nervous about getting into a good workout routine. Things were in place...until...the big brown truck pulled up. I was expecting the UPS man with my Scentsy Starter Kit. I was not expecting another package.
Hmmm...after thanking the UPS man I looked over the extra parcel. And saw that it was from Figis. Grandma! And yes, it was from Grandma. Easter baskets for the kids and a little something for Jonas and myself. I had to laugh. Because, of course, it was loaded with candies, cheeses, meats, etc. Again, I just laughed.
However, I was not defeated by all this yumminess before me. I waited until after dinner to have a few pieces of candy and I put the rest of it away. I also made the girls wait until after dinner to dig into their baskets. They had to finish their chicken nuggets and broccoli before selecting a piece of candy from their baskets. And they did, they finished every last bite.
Again, thanks Grandma for the thinking about us on Easter. We love and miss you.
