So, Tuesday we celebrate Halloween. You know that holiday that is about nothing but sugar?!?!?! Usually I do my parenting duty of performing the candy tax on my daughter’s yearly haul. If you are unfamiliar with the candy tax you are missing out!! It is where you raid the kid’s bucket and pull out all your favorites after they go to sleep. I had to haul the kid around for trick or treating so I felt I deserved a little something for my troubles.
Fast forward to this year… the past seven months have seen a BIG change in our house. I have started the fight of my life to get fit and healthy and to kick some medications to the curb. So, now I have a dilemma… throw away all that hard work by giving in on Tuesday or stick to my guns and keep up the good fight. Sigh… you guys know I begrudgingly chose to stick to my plan.
I have prepared myself for the day by buying a bunch of candy that I want no part of. So, my house might get egged, I might get flipped off and mine may be labeled as the house that gives out the crap candy but I am sticking to my plan. Good thing is that I am giving out crap candy at a trick or treat event so hopefully no one will stick around to tail me home to punish me for my choices. Sorry kiddies!! This gal only has so much will power and it’s stretched tight like a rubber band and about to pop me in the face!!
Do me a favor… remember me fondly should you read in the papers on Wednesday where I was stoned to death by pieces of stale Double Bubble (cause you know that stuff is always hard as a rock), dum dum suckers and fruit gummies.
What are your plans for the Halloween Holiday? Anybody with me on the plan to resist all of the temptations?
Take care ya’ll…
