The Munchies

I don't know why I keep opening the fridge. I know what is in it, and I know exactly what is not in it, yet I continue to open it. Who knows, maybe if I open it enough times there will magically appear more ice cream, some cookie dough, a container of spinach artichoke dip, a left over rice crispie treat from last night, anything to feed this severe attack of the munchies. So, I go back to look in the cabinets one more time. Maybe I've missed a box of cookies, a bag of candy, chips, soda, a half eaten twinkie, ANYTHING. But no, I just organized those shelves yesterday and I know what they contain. I could make something but by the time I finished the kids would be awake and my precious movie time would be lost. I could run to the store, but that would require waking the kids and still loosing my movie/secret eating time. And then I realize that I have achieved my goal. There are no unhealthy, ready to eat from a plastic package, stuffed with preservatives and sugar items in my house. So, I sit back in my chair to watch the movie that would be so much better if I had a treat to eat while watching.
Yay for me. Poor me.
(And no worries, my goal doesn't include no ice cream. I will refill my freezer as soon as I can)

Does Baskin Robbins deliver?

I feel your pain, Mama. Oh, do I feel it!

I'm so with you on this. I'm allergic to dairy, so your posts often leave me salivating. Sometimes I just close my eyes and think about a tall glass of milk. Then I remember the ensuing stomach ache and jitters, and I go back to drinking water. *sigh* I think I'll go eat some soy ice cream...

It must be the weather. I have been in the same mood for a couple of days! If Baskin Robbins does deliver tell them I want some of that Baseball Nut--MMmmmmm!

Becks,
My heart bleeds for you. I think Heavenly Father knew that that was one trial I wouldn't be able to handle. I wonder what soy ice cream tastes like? Any good ones out there?

Tama, they don't deliver and did you know that Baseball Nut is a seasonal flavor? Last time I went there it was out of season. Hmmm, maybe it is back. Now I must go see. =)

Hubby and Daughter made an ice cream run last night...after their elbows were nearly worn off by opening and closing the freezer door too many times! I guess it was our freezer genies night off :)

The munchies are the worst. The worst part of it is that i have a dozen stores and fast food places near me that i need to avoid.

Very funny!

Hey, there's calcium in ice cream. What's not to like?
