Confession: I went to the grocery store Friday.
Excuse: Someone from church called us up Thursday and asked us over for dinner the next day and requested that we bring fresh guacamole. What was I supposed to say? I said yes, of course, and went to the store, since we don't really keep avocados hanging around in the pantry. I almost stopped at the ingredients, but I couldn't help tossing an extra bag of chips into the cart for Mr. Mordecai.
Conclusions: (1) It's easier not to buy anything when you're not going to the store in the first place. (2) I have no self-control when it comes to buying treats for Mr. Mordecai. But I don't think I want to change that.
