Buy Nothing (at the movies)

Over on Crunchy Chicken's blog she has challenged us to buy nothing for the month of April. And I am doing well. Target can live without me. BUT I went to the movies yesterday. Is that considered buying something? AND I bought Raisenettes. Will I be kicked out of my eco-circles for this?

I am a SAHM so I get "me" time during the week with my friends. We like to go to lunch or movies. If I don't do this I will go crazy on the weekends with my family. I try to stay green while I see my friends.

I have 3 vices, which at this time I will not give up but plan to in the future sometime. They are diet soda, Raisenettes (only at movies) and Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough Frozen Yogurt. But I am even drinking soy milk. That is huge for me because I am a milk and cereal fan. And I have my kids trained to seek out the "O" for organic. They even read labels to look for sugar and fiber content. And we recycle.

So I am hoping that I can slip by the green police and go to the movies and enjoy my snuck in popcorn and raisenettes.
