Someone Get Rid of This Candy Before I Eat Myself to Death


That's three Snickers bars, one Crunch bar, one Starburst and a Baby Ruth. And that's just what you see pictured here. There were more wrappers in the garbage. On the bright side, it got me through a tough period in the afternoon yesterday between approximately 1:00pm and 2:00pm when Little Guy decided not to nap and to instead methodically try to drive me insane with annoying toddler-esque behavior. If not for the Halloween candy, I don't think I would have survived.

Snickers are a tasty morsel, aren't they?! I used to devour them like they were going outta style, but my affinity for their succulence has since subsided. The manufacturer decided, this past summer, to alter the recipe & insert rennet into the candy. oh well. There are better chocolates on the market than snickers.

I ended up throwing out the rest of my candy. It was just too convenient! (and tasty!)

and I can relate to those "refuse to nap" times. Why can't they understand the nap is for US, not them!? :) hang in there!

I told Josh yesterday, "Next year, no fall festival. We are ONLY trick or treating. We just don't get enough chocolate from the festival!"

You can see my priorities. LOL. Candy for ME!

OMG YES, me too. I need a Candyaholics Anonymous. Our entire family will join.

And WORSE is all the birthday party detritus, like chocolate cake and ice cream, on top of it.

If I don't blog for two days straight, send a rescue team. Please.

LOL We only had 3 trick-or-treaters so I have an entire cauldron full of candy to snack on! DH has announced that he is taking the remaining stash to school to give to his chess club kids.

Bah. those look like funsize bars. If you are not going to disgrace the chocoholic fraternity you need to be scarfing down the kingsize bars.

I'm right there with ya lass! Chocolate is so the way to go when combating that urge to sell your child to the nearest boarding school.......on the upside, by eating it yourself it means that your son isn'T, therfor, by proxy, you are saving his teeny teeth from cavaties and being an excellent mother!!!!!
(It's all on the 'spin' of the thing y'see) *hugs* xx

That's nothing! I just tried to destroy all the evidence of my Halloween gluttony by taking out all the garbages. So much candy - and I can't let the kid eat it all because she'll get sick. So, as usual, I'm taking one for the team. :)

Gah. Those kind of candybars are like kryptonite to a diet, eh?

This week I walked a total of 14 miles and ran a total of 8. So there was 22 miles of exercise, yet I gained weight... Oh yeah eating 4-8 little candy bars a day will DO that someone, yes? Gah.
