It was over before it even began

I got fitted for new contacts today, Third time's a charm is what I'm hoping. The disposable store brand that I tried in 2005 just made my eyes feel tired. The Irish store brand dailies that I tried in 2007 literally make my eyeballs hurt. And since I can't take a hint, even when nature might as well have spray painted on my wall in 12 foot tall letters YOUR EYES WERE NOT MADE FOR CONTACT LENSES, attempt number three was today. This time, I asked for the most premium, top of the line, moisture filled lenses they make, and we'll see what happens. So far, so good.

So after I got fitted, I of course had to go to the Walgreens next door for the obligatory cheapo sunglasses that I love to buy and can only wear with contacts and are actually 99% of the reason I keep trying contacts. I found a great pair of huge glamor frames, and as I walked by the brightly colored aisle of Easter candy, I said to myself, "Self, this is going to be the first year I can remember where I go through the whole season without eating any Cadbury Creme Eggs." After all, I've been attending boot camp more or less regularly, I've been more or less sticking to the points diet, and I'm making some headway on the small elephant sized amount of weight I'd like to loose this year. But getting through an entire Easter season without eating ANY Cadbury Creme Eggs is tantamount to going to Disneyland and not riding Space Mountain. And not because it's closed for renovations, but because you choose not to do the most fun thing in the world ever.

And I didn't get a Creme Egg, and I didn't get any Mini Eggs. But my brain was not entirely convinced that this was a good idea because as I walked by the Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs, I reached out and grabbed one.

And I ate it in the car on the way home. And it was delicious.

And I will still get through Easter Season 2008 without eating any Cadbury Creme Eggs.
