Does this make any sense to you?

Okay, so the other day when I went shopping by myself I was able to buy all three pair of pants in size 8. AND they had some extra room in them. I was one happy shopper and was feeling pretty good about myself.

Why, then, do I think that I now have an excuse for being able to sit down and eat almost half a can of Hershey's syrup--right from the can?

I guess I'm thinking it's some sort of reward. For fitting into a certain pair of pants. Yeah, that makes total sense!

(And, oh also...yesterday I almost chased down an Icee truck on the highway. I was on my way to Costco to get Delaney some new contacts and I about had a conniption fit when I saw the truck. An ENTIRE truck devoted to Icees. How much better could it get? I even tried to take a picture of it--to share my excitement with all of you--but I only had my camera phone with me. Lesson Learned: Take my camera with me at all times. You never know when a "blog moment" may occur. And oh yeah...I got the Icee I wanted yesterday afternoon. Strawberry...yummm!)

Going now to see if the size 8s still fit!

It's great to know that I'm not the only one who forgets to bring a camera along when I really could have used it! We'll stick together like glue from now on you and I and keep all the bad people away from us with our special karate chopping moves and .................. heyyyyy, not yet Cheryl! Good grief you're not supposed to apply the glue directly to my skin. Wait until I put a sweater on! Fantastic! Now I have to go to the hospital for possible third degree burns!
Gary what in all earth possessed you to marry this woman?!?! *Gary turns around to show third degree burns mark all over his body*. Ohhhhhhhhh I get it now .....

chasing down the icee truck had to burn off some calories!!!

hey...abbey played 10U travel this summer...and bummed right now that not enough girls want to play this fall...so her team didn't get to form. We passed up another travel team...to stay with the current team...and now the other team has filled all their slots...so I guess we will be sitting the fall out & hoping that she will get picked up in the spring.

I do the SAME thing. If I lose a pound, I pig out that day b/c hey, I deserve it, RIGHT?

Jeff said...

A truck devoted to Icees... that is so cool. We got the ice cream trucks here of course, but I have never even heard of an Icee truck.

Cheryl Wray said...

Nina--Good!!! I'm so glad to hear it! lol

Rhonda--Ha ha! I was hoping we might meet up with you guys sometime this softball season. I have learned you have to jump onto a team while you have the chance!! She'll find a team in the Spring!!

Marg--Good! lol

Renee--You absolutely deserve it! Sounds like common sense to me!

Jeff--I know!!! I LOVE Icees, so it got me pretty excited!!

melissa said...

hehe we all do that every so often ;) at least you stopped at the Hershey syrup

and I totally can relate to loving Icee's..never seen an Icee truck though. I can also relate to not having your camera for a perfect blog moment ;)

I'm guessing that... TOO MANY REWARDS = MUCH Tighter pants? But that's just a guess! ~ jb///

crazy working mom said...

Size 8...*Sigh* I only wish. ;)

Great post.

Adriann said...

Could someone be preggers?

Petrina McDonald said...

Lucky you getting to shop all by yourself AND get the pants in the the "right" size!!! I play ignorant with pants sizing myself, thinking that I must be slim because I can still fit into an AUS10 - but it is because the style has changed to suit my belly hanging OVER the pants instead of contained within!!!

Loreluca said...

You are killing me, woman! How funny can you get???
Now, the size 8 thing would seriously make me go on an unhealthy rampage!!!

Gretchen said...

It's called self sabotage, and, I'm an expert. But, a size 8 is so heavenly! I'm just trying to avoid the size 8 with a 1 in front of it and get down to a size 10. I'm a 12 or a 14 depending on how much money I spend. ;)

Have a great weekend.
