I am happy to report that nobody was hurt during yesterday's no sugar stunt. I had three times during the day where I found myself sniffing out the candy bowl. Good news is that I resisted and stayed away. Instead, I enjoyed some blueberries. They made me happy, afterall, they are nature's candy.
But then my resolve was tested when I got this email titled "Girl Scout Cookies". Dammit again!!!!!
I forgot I purchased 6 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. Yes, I said 6 boxes. The girl that was selling them is the daughter of one of my co-workers. Most of the time I can ignore my colleagues requests to support their children's fund raising but this time I couldn't resist. This girl was a marketing GENIUS. She wrote the most adorable letter and included a photo of herself. To top it off, she was going to be making a personal delivery. I bought it hook, line, and sinker. It was too cute to pass up. I wasn't the only one that got suckered in. My friend and cube neighbor Leah, also ordered a truck load.
I am sure that I will not have any problems convincing the family that it will be their job to take care of these cookies. This will be the first year I refuse to sit down and eat a whole sleeve (sleeve = box) of these things. I am staying far far away. I just feel good knowing that I helped a Girl Scout (not really, I am pouting a bit).
In other news....
My OCD is at a Code Red level today. Registration closed for the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon yesterday at 8:00 AM. I have been obsessively checking my credit card account for pending charges and checking my email. I do realize that they said March 4th.....but I am convinced in my own crazy head that it will be sooner. I just want to know already!!! Anyone else get any news yet???? Heather? Julie?
