We parted ways, with an agreement to contact each other if we were going to be gone more than our anticipated time. I had hardly cleared the driveway when the thought popped in to my head that I should stop at the store for some candy, Mounds to be exact.
The thought came totally out of the blue. I wasn't hungry. I hadn't seen an advertisement for that particular candy, nor was I near a store. In fact, going to the store was on 65MD's list.
It was a bit unsettling to have that thought pop up for no apparent reason. I tried not to panic over it. I simply told myself that wasn't an option and continued on my way. There was no epic struggle to stop or not. I just didn't.
Here's the funny part. I got home to find candy on the kitchen counter. Luckily, it wasn't Mounds but York Peppermint Patties. If there is one candy I do NOT like it is that particular brand of peppermint and chocolate. The mint it too strong and the chocolate too mild.
I had to laugh when I saw that. It was definitely an impulse buy for the hubs. He's not a candy sort of guy generally. I asked if they were for a purpose and he said they weren't. He just thought it would make a nice sweet treat every now & then. He can do that. He can leave that candy on the counter for weeks and only have some every now & then. (I can to for that candy but not most others!)
He offered to take it to his office so it wouldn't torture .me. I said that wasn't necessary that it would not tempt me in the least. It sits on the kitchen counter right now, unopened, right where he left it.
That is another NSV for me. I'll celebrate it without getting egotistical about it. I know I still have many battles ahead. I won't win them all. At least I got this one!
