Please remind me...

Please remind me that it really is a good policy to not go to the grocery store when hungry. I went in to grab a frozen meal to pop into my microwave while I was working, and came out with the meal, a can of Pringles, and some gummy worms. I will allow that Pringles are my guilty pleasure, but GUMMY WORMS??? What is wrong with me? I don't even give them to my kids, let alone dash back to my office, salivating over their sugary chewiness... What am I thinking today?

Please remind me that February in Iowa is cold and that I shouldn't forget my scarf at home on a day that I have to take Milo to preschool (necessitating a trip to the car mid-day) and two meetings across campus at completely different ends of the day. I should also reconsider my "No Hat-Hair" policy on days like today. And I really shouldn't wear a lightweight skirt, either. What idiot taught me to dress for the weather?

Please remind me that if never fails that the ONLY time I ever really want to watch TV live is for figure skating. And that the competitors I'm waiting to watch will inevitably skate during the middle of my children's bath and bedtime routine. And that on the day the Ladies take the ice, my kids will balk about going to bed. And stall. And whine. Sigh... I really wanted to be held hostage by Scott Hamilton last night, not "A-wol," the Little Mermaid, in the bathtub.

I'm guilty of making bad food choices while shopping hungry. I come home with bags of potato chips, cookies, and ice cream. And then I always say, "never doing that again" But then I do!

The gummy worms make perfect sense - you have the chewy, sweet to go with the crunchy, salty of the chips ( I love the sour candies the best)

I was just complaining to the hubby about the figure skating - I can't seem to get the chance to see the parts I want to. Hoping to catch the next round.

Hey, thanks for stopping by at my blog from MBC! Having a great time on yours!

I hear ya on the junk food.

Today I fell off the wagon, but I sort of allowed myself after the debacle that was yesterday (car accident). I had pizza for dinner tonight and cookies for dessert. And boy was it yummy!

Ummm, I'm sorry, hungry or not, gummy worms (or bears, in my case since I'm addicted to Haribo Gummy bears) are a STAPLE. They should be MANDATORY on a shopping list!

Never be ashamed of that purchase. And paired with Pringles? What more do you need in life?
