Days like today are exactly why there should ALWAYS be ice cream in this house.
Nothing particularly terrible happened around here, but the kids were especially trying and I have a lot to accomplish in the next week. Thus, the reason I wanted to sit back tonight, try to relax, and enjoy an ice cream treat.
But, we are out of any “good” ice cream (sorry, the kids’ frozen fruit juice bars just aren’t going to do in this situation). The freezer is sad, devoid of any mommy-appropriate indulgences. Really, is it too much to ask for a satisfactory supply of Magnum Double Caramel ice cream bars after a day like this?
Even more frustrating than a lack of guilty frozen pleasures? The fact that I do most of our grocery shopping and failed to recognize the urgency of a low supply. Ugh.
Eh, well, I’ll scrounge around and find something to fulfill this craving, and then off to bed. Tomorrow is a new day, with fresh starts…and plenty of time to stop at the grocery store to refill the freezer.
