The day after
27 December, 2012
First, thanks to everyone for all your positive and helpful comments (via Facebook) on the binge post It means a lot to me. So, I’m going to share this little bit of comedy with you.
As I was driving home, I realized I had no fruit for breakfast. I’ve gotten to where I cannot imagine a breakfast without fruit. I know! So, I needed to go the store, but didn’t want the danger of a fully-stocked HEB with the entrance by the bakery. I thought I’d stop at Sprouts since they tend to have less processed food and had blackberries on sale (I’ve been all about the blackberries, lately). I walk in the store and what’s the first thing by the door? THE FREAKING LOFTHOUSE SUGAR COOKIES I’ve been obsessed with and that started me on my binge path. And they have Christmas decorations on them. *sigh* I take a look and then turn my back on them and head to the fruit. Bought some lovely blackberries, blueberries, oh, the tomatoes I need, celery’s always good, and hey! Barbara’s Cinnamon Puffin cereal on sale. I could use that. Okay, that’s it. I’m wandering aimlessly. Time to get out of here before I get weak.
Feeling rather good about myself, I come home and start making the healthy dinner I’d planned. I put away my groceries and then go to get the container of lettuce out. The container of lettuce that I proceed to drop leaving me standing there staring at a floor strewn with lettuce. *sigh* I gather up the bit that didn’t fall out of the bin and figure I’ll make due. I go to get a bowl out and realize they are all clean and in the dishwasher. Fine. I start unloading the dishwasher and go to put a small pyrex pot away. Only I dropped it. It cracks in two and sends a few splinters of glass flying. Seriously? I then proceed to burn my fake sausage (vegetarian) and cut my finger while chopping up green peppers for the salad. Freaking seriously??
I should have just gotten the damn sugar cookies. They might have actually been less dangerous.
