The grocery stores are plotting against me!

Not only is it bad enough that they are they putting wine displays all over the place making my shopping look like rat avoiding the cat in a maze. Now that its Valentines month they have those sweetheart candies (the ones with the cute sayings on them) everywhere they can cram them. I lOVE those things,,except the white ones, (i throw them out) eat them till im sick, then eat some more,,,,,, I am sooooooo screwed,,,

I love the white ones! Send them my way. I just need to avoid the candy aisle. I've been cramming sugar in my mouth all day.

Grocery store is hard. Now on weekends they have people handing out wine samples. I just "no thanks" and keep on walking. Cheaper that way.

I ate so many stupid candy hearts yesterday that my tongue was raw today. I feel your pain!

I shared in a post last week that I really and I mean really almost kicked over 3 cases of champagne in the cashier isle. I thought someone was messing with me. I feel like the stores are still used to AV and not KfleeV. I don't know how to love grocery shopping and being in the store period, knowing that after I get home I cannot down a beer or glass of wine. Just not the same

I'm glad you posted this, grocery stores are hard! There are areas where I just don't go. The minute I see the wine aisle, my AV starts doing her lame chant about how I'm better and can drink normal and, well, you all know that voice!

Now candy hearts, those are deeeeliciious...gotta stay clear of that aisle, too.
