There’s a ceramic pumpkin full of Halloween candy sitting in our living room. I know it’s there. It doesn’t bother me. We don’t have any children living here, so it’s not like it gets eaten up in a day. I do have a husband who enjoys having a candy bar every now and then. On top of the candy in the ceramic pumpkin are the cut out (by my husband) nutrition labels for every bag that he dumped into the ceramic pumpkin.
I used to be a chocoholic.
Then I got diabetes…
But – for some reason, I’ve been running low every single afternoon when I get home from work this week.
God likes me?
And, while years ago I could and would and did eat several of those itty, bitty candy bars as a snack, I find myself smiling with glee when Dexcom beeps and I get to eat just one of those itty, bitty candy bars. Choosing just one is not easy but surprise! – there are itty, bitty Twix bars in the ceramic pumpkin. OMG, I haven’t had a Twix bar in years and years.
It was 11 carbs and yummy!
And nope, we don’t have to worry about not having any candy for trick or treaters next week. There will be none. We’re in the boonies.
So it’s ours, all ours…
