They are all against me

Its a conspiracy i tell ya!

First it was free cone day at Ben and Jerry's and now 31 cent scoop at Baskin and Robbins.

There is a secret Ice Cream Council out there somewhere that is plotting against me and my diet.

But its ok. I resisted the sweet temptation (pun intended) and went running instead tonight.

they can try all they like... but they will not win...

Oh Ben....you don't know the half of it! Try feeding two 6 year olds everday. My day begins with pooring a bowl of Rice cripies smothered in milk; then making their lunch which consists of pb and j, chips, granola bars, chocoalte pudding, crackers, and what ever else we have in the pantry; and then dinner time...consisting of pizza or really anything else. Now That's Temptation!

So what are you all gonna get us while your in Mexico? hmmmmmm? No water please.

Ben.. said...

yes Chelsea that does sound tough. you are truly stronger than me. I'd pack them beans and eat their granola bars.

and we are going to get everyone some tequila from mexico. If we don't drink it all first. which is very likely to happen.

We took an offroad trip to a tequila farm while we were there. You should go, there was a little old lady rolling tiny little cigars for everyone. they were the best cigars ever. and the food and tequila was great! The tour takes you out of town and away from the timeshare salesmen. It was cool to see some "normal" people. And blowing up the offroad cars engine was fun too!
Call for more info or pics.

we get plenty of notice for no pants day but you tell us about 31 cent scoop day after it happens... what's up with that???

Kimberly said...

thank you lisa. those were my exact thoughts to a T!

i posted 31 cent scoop day the day it happened. you had ample time to get there if you check my blog every 5 minutes for updates as you should be doing.

and the Ice cream council was at it again. Ice Cream social at my work today. they are devious.

lisa said...

every 5 minutes... i don't check on my kids that often!

they really are out to get you...
ice cream everywhere! i have a solution... if you work really hard to become allergic to dairy, only then will they truly lose! (or maybe i just want someone to commiserate with me -- dairy and chocolate allergies suck!)

lisa said...

checking.... not exactly 5 minutes later... but there's nothin' new here...

i'm waiting!

lisa.. dairy and chocolate allergies - and no trader joes.. it's like God is testing you or something.. i do not envy you sister.. at least you can have your wine.. we might have to throw a white flag if you develop a
wine allergy..

Ben.. said...

sorry i was in a movie and couldn't post for a few minutes

i'm back.

Iron man is awesome. go see it.

and i think i am lactose intolerant, but i refuse to believe it so i just keep eating it all.

like Chara says, its not an allergy, you just have to try harder.

lisa said...

that's it... God must be testing me... I'm gonna go read Job :)

i wish it was an intolerance... i've tried all the lact-aid stuff you can find... but it didn't help. every once in a while i will say "screw it" and eat something with dairy or chocolate -- a little while later i am wishing i would die! if i develop a wine allergy, i'm throwin' in the towel!
