No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Got in my morning walk and got home to start the school day just in time.
I found out this morning that I totally spaced out my friend's birthday last week. I feel soooo bad. In all of the uproar with the BIL's cancer diagnosis, it wasn't even on my radar screen. She is such a gracious person and honestly does not care, but I do. Ugh. I hate it when I do that type of thing. I'm going to get her at least a card this evening.
So my new irritation is this--Since July I have been trying not to have separate "diet" food than the rest of my family--besides one cupboard that I have my almonds and a few other things it, we decided to pretty much just get healthy type foods. The kids get SOME snacks that they like, but our refrigerator is stocked with fresh fruit, veggies, yogurt, lean meats, etc. So a couple weeks ago we actually found my fat free chocolate pudding cups in Aldi's--it's hit or miss if we can find them so we bought like 5 packages of 4 cups. I had ONE of them when we got them. One package went in the fridge, I went to get one out the other day, and there are NO pudding cups left. And nobody confesses to scarfing them all down. Nobody else in the house needs to have fat free treats, and they disappeared.
So now my husband says we need to keep things for me separate so there's no confusion. Yesterday, as much as I hated it, I got a bin made up in the fridge that is just my health food. It really grates on me to do that. It takes up extra space and it seems selfish to me. We are even talking about finding a place to plug in the large dorm-fridge for just that stuff...
What do y'all do? Do you have a separate cupboard or a "don't touch this" place in the fridge?
