I Will Eat the Chocolate

My alarm went off at 6:45 today.  While in the shower I decided, I will eat chocolate today.

Let me back up.  It was a whirlwind of a morning.  I got the kids off to school and got myself and the girls ready.  While I was finishing my makeup, five minutes before I had to leave, I realized the girls were too quiet.  I opened my bedroom door and the girls were painting each others nails.  OK, they were trying to.  It was everywhere.  Yippee.

I had to be in Lancaster for a training course at 10:00.  Immediately following the training I had to rush over to school to run the Niagara Chocolate sale.  Today we had to sort through all the orders that came in and organize them for parent pick-up.  Like last year, I am "watching what I eat."  I've been sticking to the healthy stuff.

Last year, the very kind delivery man gave us a stack of chocolate bars before he departed.  Last year, I had enough will power not to eat them.  Today, I was going to eat them.

We unloaded the entire truck and I signed the paperwork.  It was at this point last year the kind man gave me chocolate.  I waited for a moment, in case he forgot, and he said, "Have a good day."

What!?  No chocolate bars?  I was going to eat the chocolate today!  I decided it was better he didn't give me the chocolate.  I seriously would have eaten them all.

About an hour later the Niagara rep came in to see how everything was going.  She did not come last year.  Before she left she handed me a bag of chocolate.  Score.  Wait, no.  I made it this far.  I was not going to eat the chocolate. 

I got in the car to head home.  At this point I am exhausted.  I ripped open the box of chocolate covered pretzels and stuffed them in my mouth.  Life is good.


  1. I probably ate about 10 for my dinner tonight. Not good for the hips.

  2. chocolate is my biggest weakness. no joke


I love hearing from you!
