A Little Victory

Major victory today: the scene: me, overtired, PMSy and coming down with a cold, sinuses about to burst. I had to go to Walgreens and pick up pictures for my daughter. Class project, no avoiding it. I thought, this is it. This is when I will really cave in and get something.

But when I went in… I just made a straight line to the picture counter, got my stuff, paid and then a straight line out the door. I don’t even know how that happened, I was so sure I couldn’t withstand temptation when I felt so tired and weak. But when I left, I felt a little like a champion in that little fight. And that was way better than some candy bar.

It made it easier then tonight when I has to wait an extra hour and a half for dinner while I took kid #7 to ballet. There were vending machines there, but I didn’t even look their direction.

I know the Walgreens trip would have been much harder if I had to walk down aisles and really shop. But for today, I’m happy with how I did.
