Girl scout cookies, my weakness

February 16, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I've been attempting to cut back on sugar.  No sweet tea, try my best not to buy any sugary things.  I got an e-mail probably about a month ago, from a woman at church telling that her daughter was selling girl scout cookies.  I ignored it.  Didn't answer.  On purpose, so I wouldn't be tempted. I knew that every Feb.  The girl scouts set up in Kroger in my neighborhood and sell them.  Usually they don't start till late in Feb. doing the grocery store tables.  So going to Kroger today I knew was risky.  But there were a few things I needed.  So I went walking in I didn't see them at the front of the store.  So I thought maybe they had not begun doing the store fronts yet.  I went in and got what I wanted.  Then seeing the 15 items or less line was not long down at the end and I had less than 15 items.  I headed there.  Then to my surprise just beyond where that 15 or less register was a table and bunch of brownies.  One was dressed up as a thin mint cookie.  They were pretty small, I don't remember what age Brownies are but they looked pretty little to me.  I just couldn't resist.  I took out my billfold and counted out the three dollars and fifty cents pre box.  Gave it to the adult behind the table and the little girl dressed up as a thin mint cookie gave me the box.  

Since I was a brownie, I've had a thing for the thin mints.  They only come around once a year, and I try to limit the number I buy.  This year I was attempting to get away with out buying any at all.  So much for that plan.  So now the plan is to only buy one box.  Let's hope I can restrain myself.
