Dear Halloween Candy

I am sorry to be the one that has to do this, dear Halloween candy, but I am afraid you have proved immune to my subtle hints. You have overstayed your welcome here. I have to ask you to leave. Especially you, Kit Kat, with your impish cookie crunch that even the gods would find irresistible. And you, Hershey's. There is not a drawer deep enough that can contain your chocolaty temptress self from stealing into my brain as I sit innocently googling weight loss tips. I am afraid our relationship is over.

You have time and again stepped over the rules I established at the beginning of our time together. You refuse to stop seducing me with your brilliant packaging, your intoxicating sweet scent, your bewitching crunchy and chewy textures. So I call halt. Halt to this charade that we can belong together in the same place in time.

Goodbye. Forever.

Or well... until next Halloween.

So... how did you get rid of it?

I didn't get rid of all of it, to be honest. I just slipped from passive mode (where I pretended that I could avoid eating any) to actively trying to rid the house of the stash as fast as possible. If the kids open any and take a bite or two and then leave the rest I've started tossing it instead of saving them. (Because it is usually me that ends up finishing it anyway.) I sent the stuff that no one is reaching for off to my husband's work crew. I have the kids grab a piece after each meal. Each little bit helps.
