God grant me strength

...to survive my foodie friends.

Foodie friends are moving closer to us.  Much closer.  Right now they are about 14 miles away.  At the end of the month they'll be 2.5 miles.  I know this because foodie friend wife did a mapquest search.  o_O  As it is, foodie friends don't seem to get the concept of responsibilities, moderation, or boundaries.  I have had to say "no" more times than I can count for different things.

Today I posted on Facebook that I got a B+ (88) on my first test in my C session summer class.  Her response?

"Great job!!! That sounds like a celebration at Cold Stone."

For those who aren't familiar with Cold Stone, it's an ice cream shop.  A very, VERY yummy ice cream shop.

I simply answered, "LOL, nope!"

Her answer was that she didn't mean today. 

I finally just said that I canNOT keep "rewarding" myself with food and goodies, so it's going to be a no.  Maybe I should ask her to send me money instead.  ;)

I'm not going to survive this move.  I like them well enough, but there are things about them that drive me nucking futs.


  1. Sounds like a real challenge, but you can do it!

  2. You have no idea. I've been friends with them since 2006, and food seems to be their only reason to live. They KNOW about my band, and they KNOW what I'm trying to do, but it's still always about food. And the fact that I've been at a standstill for nearly a year really gets to me too and makes me especially mad at suggestions like this. :(

  3. Ack. Seriously, what do you do about people like this... they don't hear no. I don't have any suggestions (wish I did though!!) but you will figure it out. I think you might need to fo your sanity.

  4. Are you sure they didn't do map search on all the available houses in your area and buy the closest one??? They seem to want an enabler to their eating and your band is deeply inconvenient! Not the behavour of a true friend, but you don't need me to tell you that. Good luck, I hope you can get back in the zone again soon. xx

  5. Believe it or not, they were actually looking at a house in my very own NEIGHBORHOOD! I redirected them out of here because, not only do I have the food issues with them, but they also want to go running around all the time when they know I am in school full time and have homework obligations. Could you imagine if they were just up the street? :(

  6. Foodie friends.....ugh!!! Stay strong!
