My El Guapo

I hate an empty fridge. Really dislike it. You know why? It makes me feel poor. I don't like to feel poor. Feeling poor makes me feel out of control, and, well, I like control. A lot. But lately (as in this morning), there has been a bad smell coming from the fridge. Well, not from it when it's closed, but from it when you open it. I decided to face my El Guapo and clean out my fridge. I have an entire empty shelf and two empty drawers. The top two shelves are not full. I could fit everything onto one shelf. But then I might feel impoverished instead of just poor.

We all have El Guapo's. For some of us, illiteracy may be our El Guapo. It's the thing that holds us back. I have several El Gaupo's. The fridge is just the first of many. It was probably the easiest El Guapo to vanquish. Maybe if I tackle an El Guapo a week, I could have them all taken care of by our summer vacation. Then I would be perfect. Some of you don't like perfect people, but that would be your El Guapo, not mine.

Good job! I love a clean fridge! I don't like the actual act of cleaning it but I like it when it's done!

I don't like an empty fridge because then I'll feel like I don't have any food and I wont eat! Then, I'll get cranky! haha! But I feel poor every single day....living in an apartment! It's humilating! I know, I need to get over it. But first, let me conquer my broken foot!
BTW~ The Coldstone Was just the PERFECT GESTURE! PERFECT!! THANKS!
