We had a huge supply of Halloween candy, and only got 4 kids at the door due to the freezing cold weather ........ minus 8 with a good strong wind, snow on the ground already, SHEESH !!!
As a result, I was left with tons of goodies that I don't want around as they are too tempting. I have been more than very good, I never ate one single thing, and I used to be a chocoholic, so I am extremely proud of myself.
Several of my friends on here suggested I donate to a Food Bank, and that is what I did. I also donated some to the children's ward at our local hospital for the poor little ones that weren't able to have Halloween and are approved to eat the candy (that was a suggestion from a co-worker, thought I'd pass it on for others if they are looking to rid themselves of the 'heavy weight' in the bags)
I feel much better now, and know I made some children happier and not put on a single ounce since I tested my will power and passed the test.

Yep, 4 kids, that's it., between my daughter and myself, we have a box of 50 bags of chips, 6 boxes of chocolate bars -- anywhere from 80 - 100 in each box!
It was 8 below with one wicked wind last night, so I suspect that has something to do with our 'huge crowd' of candy lovers.
Even my granddaughter only went out for 45 minutes at the most and had enough after this short time. I can understand in her case however, Grandma has so much, it's just too much trouble to bother going door to door.
Oh, well, done for another year, I will hide the stuff away ..... out of sight = out of mind HOPEFULLY. There is always stuff for Christmas I suppose, my parents come to stay usually for about 10 days, my Dad can clean out a bowl of candy in record speed .... believe me, I've seen it!!
Hope you all had a great Halloween and don't eat too many leftovers! I can't believe I ate none of it, not one little bite, Wow I am really commuted that means !!!

Hope you enjoy the festivities of the day, and remember .... the candy is for the kids (like me perhaps??!! ) ......... EEKS, oh no! I must not.

Just my luck, I am leaving on vacation and I first go to Vancouver/Victoria where they had an earthquake this past weekend measuring 7.7, then I am off to the Caribean where they just got over Hurricane Sandy passing thru to visit this past weekend.
Is someone trying to tell me I should stay home and not go anywhere? Well, sorry, not going to happen, I will go anyway, after, there is an airport at both places and as long as that still stands, I am having my well deserved holiday!!
Hopefully all will be well, but I figure if not, I will have lots to talk about when I return back home!
And how was the weather where you were this weekend ?!

All day there have been zombie movies on two of our television channels, gearing up for HALLOWEEN again.
Having a pumpkin carving contest at work tomorrow and a huge pot luck lunch on Wednesday (Halloween day). Always lots of fun, always lots of food, all of it fantastic. I will behave and not overdo it though. WISH ME LUCK !!!
I bought loads of little chocolate bars the other day and my daughter said it's not enough (ONLY BECAUSE SHE WANTS IT FOR HERSELF !! ) so today she and my granddaughter went candy shopping, came home with the entire store I swear. My goodness.
I am trying not to think about it being here, but it's difficult since it is all sitting on the kitchen table waiting for HER to put it all away.
I am no different from her, I love chocoate too, but have been very good in not having any of what I bought and likely will succeed in avoiding what she has bought too.
I keep telling myself I have not gone through all these months working hard to get here only to start the road back again, my road is going forward no matter what and I am not going to turn back
If only my kids (grown up kids) would put things away for themselves!! So, I say it again, WISH ME LUCK !!!
