Chocolate has always been one of my favorite things. I could go for weeks without eating a cookie or a donut. I don't enjoy sweet tea, sugared cereals or things with a ton of frosting.
This past weekend I was working on the taxes and trying to figure out what's deductible and what's not, going through the expenses for our 'rental property' - otherwise known as the other half of our townhouse. DH has saved all the receipts for the past year. Shoved. in. a. brown. envelope. Grrrr.
I was getting frustrated. I was getting a headache. And a backache. Oh, wait, I smell CHOCOLATE!! Hmmm, wonder what it could be? It was coming from the giant pile of papers near the file cabinet. I pushed all the papers aside and what was sitting there but the red heart box of candy from Valentine's Day! I ate one immediately. Ahhhhh!! OK, now the frustration was going down as the endorphins kicked in. OMG did I just eat seven week old candy?
Yes, and I hardly even minded at all.
