Friday's Chocolate Therapy

My youngest son woke up this morning hungry for breakfast, and showing no signs of fever. You can't even believe how thankful I am for that. It has been a long week. Thank you all for your prayers!!

He is easing into solid food again after the "bug". But not me. I'm celebrating, big time!!!

This here totally chocolate donut from Entenmenns is my breakfast, courtesy of my wonderfully thoughtful husband. Along with more 7 Up for the household, he set this on the counter for me last night. "These are for MOMMY only, guys." He loves me! :)

A quick prayer request before I go on, though. My two older sons are going on a winter retreat tonight and taking a friend each from school. They have been so excited about this and have everything but the kitchen sink packed.

That said, last night my middle boy developed a really bad headache. That's exactly how my little guy started out. Now, this morning, I saw no signs of fever, but then, it's morning.

Please pray that he doesn't come down with the bug. He and his friend would be crushed if they couldn't go along on the retreat.

O.K., now back to breakfast, which in turn brings me to my contribution to Home Steader's Heart's Friday Funnies.

I'm not sure how funny you'll find these. Most just seem like good common sense to me. :)


1. If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.

2. Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

3. Problem: How to get 2 pounds of chocolate home from the store in hot car. Solution: Eat it in the parking lot.

4. Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite and you'll eat less.

5. A nice box of chocolates provides your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn't that handy?

6. If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. However, if you can't eat all your chocolate, it may be a sign of a deeper problem.

7. If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves.

8. Equal amounts of dark chocolate and white chocolate are a balanced diet.

9. Two phrases: Money talks. Chocolate sings.

10. The preservatives in chocolate make you look younger.

11. Q. Why is there no such organization as Chocoholics Anonymous?
A. Because no one wants to quit.

12. If not for chocolate, there would be no need for control top pantyhose. An entire garment industry would be devastated.

13. Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

oh you have to link this post up to "Would You Like Chocolate With That?" over at Stop and Smell the Chocolate! You can find the link in the footer of the "chocolate" post I put up today.

About your list:

1. LOL!

2. But the fruit contaminates the chocolate.

5. I am pragmatic like that.

10. Wouldn't that be wonderful?
