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)

A Girl of the Limberlost by Gene Stratton Porter: one of my all time favorite books. It's a simple, sweet story of a girl who fights for what she wants and by staying pure and true to herself and others she gets all she deserves by the end. It's a true happy ending. If you've ever seen the TV version it is not the same thing. I can't stand the TV version they made of this.
