The annual candy fest is over. Even though some people handed out granola bars or other healthier option than candy [including tiny tubs of Play-Dough!], let’s face it. Most of us bought candy for the trick-or-treaters.
I won’t list the brands I bought, although I WILL say that most of them were combinations of peanuts and chocolates that generally give me a headache. Smart, huh? But, there was way too much.
So much, in fact, that I actually delivered EXTRA candy to the neighbor’s children. The caregiver was taking a trip to visit some friends for a belated Halloween party – she got quite a bit as well.
Those of us who work outside the home know the power of co-workers. All the non-chocolate candy ended up in a big bowl AWAY from me. It’s almost gone.
The rest, well, it’s still here, but a fraction of what it was. Many of them are Mom’s favorites [and the ones that give me headaches]. Right now, there’s a batch of peanut butter brownies in the oven, made with peanut butter cups – a package and a half, in fact!
Great brownies, and they’re all going to church with Mom! YIPPEEEE!!!
So, all in all, I’ve survived it. Everyone is happy, and it’s all going away.
How did you do? where is all the extra candy you bought? AND WHY DO WE ALL BUY SO MUCH! The fact that it’s been on sale is no excuse!
As soon as I figure out that particular point, I’ll let you know.
And now, I gotta tell everyone that my awful deadline is finally past. The program went well, and life should get back to normal now, at least what passes for normal these days. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Stay tuned!
