Saying Goodbye is Sometimes the Hardest Thing to Do (especially when it comes to candy)

Today was a sad day.

Today I threw out the remaining Halloween candy that has been calling to me from the pantry for the last two weeks. I covered it up in the garbage can with old paper towels and yucky trash, lest I get a major hankering and want to go in after it.


You may want to take a moment to mourn this chocolatey loss. I do need to move on, however: there are, as they say, other peanut butter cups in the sea.

The time for eating delectable treats at 8 am is behind me, at least until Christmas rolls around, with its goodies tucked away in my stocking...

Those thoughts should keep me satiated for the time being.

  8. A tear...what strength! We still have a handful of candy- just can't let go. Plus it is difficult to fight with a three year old who does not understand that mommy threw away the candy because she only has one skirt she can fit into.

    The first thing I did notice was the p-nut butter cup. That is the deal breaker for me...Paper toweland all it would be pulled out of the trash can in a second flat!

    Perhaps while the kiddies nap I can say goodbye to some of the candy we have... perhaps.
