He’s a ferrety ferret. A hider of sweet things. He’s like a crack addict when it comes to lollies, sweet, desserts and candies. He’s a sugar addict pre-rehab. He works hard so the calories burn off him. Mostly. so even though I really, really hate that sugary stuff, I let him be. I’ve taken it out of our food pretty much everywhere else, so I let the man be.

Clearly though. I’ve been too strict.

He’s gone into hiding.

Gone underground with his stash.

Which is all kinds of weird for a grown man in his own house, right?

Sorry babe, it is!

But really, when it comes down to it, it’s my fault, isn’t it. Does anyone remember how badly I reacted in my second week of quitting sugar when he brought home a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts? I lost my head a little but in the end all it did was proved to me that without sugar in my life I just didn’t crave it any more. But it set a precedent. I told him it was absolutely not supportive and crap to bring that stuff into the house. So now, he hides it.

Wait.

That’s not better at all, is it?

Now he’s a sneaky ferret?

A candy filled, sneaky ferret.

The sneaky bit is his fault. Mostly.

Decide for us Sugers, whose fault is this? Who turned Hubby into a sneaky candy ferret?

 

  • All the more reason he needs a man cave! HaHa
    I would probably do the same, you can’t rub it in your partners face that “Hey I’m eating these, and you can’t !!”

    • He can have all the man cave he likes, as long as I can get my car in the garage. Haha.
      So it WAS my fault? Hmmm.

    Our fridge is in a cupboard, and I recently found JW unwrapping his Cornetto in there. I think he was partly trying to be supportive of my current wheat-free, meat-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, alcohol-free, caffeine-free detox, but mainly because he was hiding from himself. He, too, was meant to be off dairy! I’m going to check out some of your sugar-free posts! I’m into week 2 and feeling veerrrrry flat today. My journey unfolds over here: http://www.houseofgoals.co.uk

    • I had to have a little giggle at this. The fridge in the cupboard thing wouldn’t work around here, we’d both just end up hanging out in a cupboard all night. Haha.

      Hiding from himself too. I like that. We ALL do that.

    I’m gonna be a pain-in-the-arse fence sitter and say a little from column A and a little from column B 😛 He probably *shouldn’t* be hiding it but I can also see his logic. Strike it down as a lesson learned, no one’s fault just a new understanding.

    • That’s how I felt at the end of the post. I was all oh my goodness I’ve pushed him over the edge at the start, then I was like, hold on there candy ferret! Haha.
