Humpday Help - Chocolate

Monday began like any normal Monday after Spring Break...and yet I survived.
After taking hubby to the airport, I was on my way to the Cub Scout Shop when I ran over a mysterious thumping thing. Once in the Scout Shop parking lot, my 4 yr old and I watched as my poor tire hissed a final hiss then lay flat on the pavement. I went to pop open the trunk to retrieve the spare, but due to the declining age of this "classic" vehicle the trunk was stuck in the closed position.

After a sigh then a laugh, I called a wrecker. Mr. Wrecker came to my aid and saved the day. (No, he wasn't a hottie... just a normal Joe.) I've learned to keep a sense of humor and look at life as an adventure. But ... the truth is... I have a stash of chocolate! Chocolate makes everything better.

Yep... the good stuff.

Bittersweet (50% cocoa) - for unlimited consumption after long days at work, enduring a child's temper tantrum at the market, and calmly handling any roadside emergency.

Dark (35% cocoa) - at least on bar after successfully managing a 4 yr old,an antsy tween, a demanding teen, and a phone call at the same time; completing dinnertime, bath-time, story-time, and bedtime before 10:00pm.

Now that it's Wednesday... aka Humpday... the week has not improved with the exception of a new guinea pig for the youngest child. If anyone is looking for me, I'll be wallowing in chocolate. Oh... pass a glass of wine, please.

Mary, I soooooooooo understand. No, I don't have the kids. However, life is no less of a challenge. Recently, I had to have my van towed because it wouldn't start... why? the mice/rats decided to have chewing day. I guess the taste of wire was just too much for them.
We live out in the country, and the critters abound. In fact, I just saw an eagle. That's the good side... the other, well, it was a long expensive day to get it fixed.

I have these little alcohol-filled chocolate bottles left over from Christmas stashed away for days like that. Chocolate should be in emergency kits everywhere. Great post, I hope your week is getting better.
