Ok... I just have to admit the problem then I can get help and be better-right? Those that know me know that I have a strong bond with chocolate. This is not a secret. For my birthday last year my sweet husband bought Hershey Chocolate bars and put them in all my drawers. He was even smart enough to stash some in his own drawers for when my stash ran out, which didn't take long. Well now I have really gone over the edge. My good friend Lori provided me with some bars, just the right brand too, I ate them very quickly. Every morning I get up to get lunches made and while I make the lunches I sneak chocolate morsels out of the refrigerator, at 6:00 a.m.! Throughout the day I find myself completely drawn to the morsels in the refrigerator. I sneak more and more! I think I have a serious problem. There hasn't been a single day in months that chocolate hasn't been in my system, and I wonder why I am holding on to an extra 10 pounds... that is a tough one! Ok... so help! Any advice from other recovering addicts. They should have CAA,choc Aholics Anonymous. Oh and don't say the obviouse that I shouldn't have it in the house, that seems like an easy solution but trust me I will hunt it down. I need direction??? Help!!!

Poor Savannah found out the hard way that you should never stick your hand to a frosted window and leave it there. Oops...I thought we would have learned that lesson years ago when Madeline stuck her tongue to the street pole. She was a vision that morning. Just like in the moving Christmas Story...arms were going and screams were heard. But, for Savannah she just feel plain embarrassed. I didn't find out about this for days. Lessons learned the hard way.

Out with the old...In with the new!

The time has come to retire our old van. This was a sad moment for all of us. We had this van longer than we've had Jonah! With a whopping 215,000 miles it was done. There were some tears shed but we are over it. What fun the new ride is. It has more features than we could have ever wanted. I still get out of the drivers side and wait for the kids to come out my door. I have a hard time remembering that the new van has a drivers side door for entrance. For the first few weeks I couldn't believe I was driving something so nice. I no longer have to give it gas at idle to keep it running. This has been better than Christmas morning for our kids. I believe we may be actually cool to them for a while, short lived I am sure...but fun for now.
