My Guilty Valentine

They say confession is good for the soul.

My Mom's birthday is January 30th.

I happened to be at the England Store in Salt Lake City earlier that month and bought her a huge Cadbury chocolate bar with filberts, her very favorite nut.

Mom has moved from across the street to a town a couple hours away so I tucked her chocolate bar away and waited for her to visit. On her birthday I mentioned that I had the chocolate and told her to come visit soon before she ended up sharing it with me.

On Valentines day I ate it! The whole thing.

Thanks for the Valentine, Mom...

it was delicious.

she should have visited sooner!
Glad you had something yummy though.

How strange to have her so far away.

Man, that sounds good. Um, you should have brought it out at Tanner's blessing....then if she forgot it I could have eaten it. :)

And now Google account ate my comment and I don't remember it enough to do it again. (dumb computer.)

All right you guys! At least I have the chocolate left over from the S'mores at the reunion still in my freezer. Now if someone will send some filburts ? uh, hazelnuts? back with Mike and Debbie I'll get by. ;).

That is JUST the sort of thing I would do! I bought my grieving friend a MASSIVE block of chocolate and I just about ate that before I gave it to her (it was only going to be two days between buying it and seeing her). How bad is that if I can contemplate eating the comfort chocolate of a grieving friend? Maybe we need to seek counselling... do they do a group discount?

Can you start blogging about raising boys? Maybe give us some tips. I don't think I'm going to make it through with four boys, and my oldest is only 13 1/2. :(
