Is anyone else afraid to go out of the house with their wallet/purse for fear they won't be able to say no to the many temptations out there?
Today I meant to go buy a "tilt-a-table" from Canadian Tire for my lap top. This evening my Mom messaged me asking if I got it and I had to tell her I forgot. She's been worried about the knot in my shoulder that we think may have come from sitting on the floor with my laptop on the coffee table. The knot that has prevented me from continuing my Jillian's 30 day shred, and push up challenge. Anyway, I told her I forgot and I can't go now because it wouldn't be "safe". I asked if she would like to come with me? But she is sick, and tired, plus she lives a fair way from me so it would be a pain. After some time sitting there with the knot and thinking of the relief I decided I would take my chances.
I actually had to tell my Mom I was leaving, and take my cell phone with me, so that she could call at any time and check on me. (How old am I again?)
While I was there in the store, oh ya, right there at the check out counter, there were all these beautiful boxes of Pot of Gold for under $4.00 each ........ droooooool.
You know, chocolate has a lot to do with hardware shopping.
I looked at it slyly out of the corner of my right eye and then I turned and looked RIGHT AT IT! OMG!!!!!!! OMG!!!!! No, I don't want it. I don't need it. No No No No No. Look in your purse. There is gum. Oh seriously, gum!? Come on. Gum is not chocolate! Ok, just put a piece of gum in your mouth and see what happens, ok? ok fine. &^$#%*(^%@#*(
I felt my heart beating harder and faster. Put the gum in my mouth, paid for the table and got the hell out of there. It was SO hard.
Once I got home I messaged my Mom and let her know I was back. Funny thing is she didn't ask me this time if I made it safely? Maybe she knew I could do it.
