Not sure which I love more: my mother-in-law, or the chocolate

Obviously, it's been a rough couple of days.

And my mother-in-law, thankfully, knows full well that nothing brightens my day faster than a piece of Dove dark chocolate.

So, Sunday, when we went over to my in-laws after purchasing our new appliances (more about those later!), she had a bag of Dove hearts waiting for me. Yea, me!

Jim likes milk chocolate, not dark, so I knew there'd be no hard feelings if I took the bag to work. How handy for my 3 pm sweet tooth moment.

And wouldn't you know it? Today, I counted out the pieces, and there is exactly one piece for each work day I have left until Christmas vacation (ie, we go to Florida)! I know it's kind of a silly observation, but humor me. It's like my own little grown-up-and-taken-out-of-context Advent calendar. Sort of.


Hey. Whatever gets you through the day, no?

Hi Monica,
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a friendly comment =-).
I personally love your modern day adult advent calendar!!
I read through a couple of your most recent posts...and I wanted to say how very, very sorry I am for your loss. I lost my first (and only so far) pregnancy to miscarriage, and I know how painful and lonely it can be. I will be praying you feel the Lord's comfort and peace.
blessings,
kendra =-)

Oh, and I totally hear you on the dark chocolate. No other chocolate can quite compare. ;)

Does that mean if I buy you more dark chocolate that you guys will stay until it's gone? If so, watch out. You three are in our prayers always. Love ya.
