I can relate.
I just fought a huge chocolate craving. And I won. Not because I had great will power, but because there's none in my house! How could I have let this happen?! No tootsie rolls, no Yorks in the freezer, no hot chocolate (yes, I know it's May, but it's a rainy day) no chocolate chips, not even any cookies 'n' cream left! AHH! I want chocolate! And I WANT IT NOW! GIMME GIMME GIMME!!!
But alas, there was nothing to be done about it. I don't even have a car today. A friend was going to come over and I seriously considered asking her to pick up a candy bar or something. No, I thought, better to get a bag of something that will last longer.... Then I realized the ridiculousness of my request and that I could never ask anyone to pick up chocolate at the store for me. (Except my husband. Maybe I should call him...)
After about 15 minutes, my brain realized that it wasn't getting any chocolate and got over it. But then I started thinking about all the other things I want NOW.
I want to read The Host by Stephenie Meyer NOW. I'm currently #37 on the library's waiting list. Maybe I'll get it by July.
I want to watch American Idol NOW. My husband's plans changed and now he'll be home tonight. Which is great. But he's not a big AI fan, so if I could just watch it NOW, when I'm bored out of mind (hence the blogging) it would save Levi, and therefore myself, a headache tonight.
I want Isaac to get past this phase where he builds stuff with the couch cushions! I haven't tried too hard to stop it, since it means he's using his imagination, but I like being able to sit on my couch whenever I want without destroying his dog house, like NOW.
I want a minivan. I know, I know, I'm so old! But it'd be nice for times when we want to go places with the dogs. The Accent's a bit small for 2 adults, 2 carseats, and 2 big dogs. And it means that I have one less boundary to cross before child #3. And I could get in it and go get some chocolate NOW.
I want a big gold egg like Veruca wanted. Wouldn't that be awesome? I bet I could get my minivan with that!!
And I still want chocolate. I thought I was over it. I don't know what I'm going to do. Maybe I'll dress up the kids in costumes to take them trick-or-treating and steal any chocolate they may get. It's Utah. People do weird stuff like that here all the time and get away with it. Arr, matey! Gimme thy CHOCOLATE!!
