At least for me anyway, and I know – I know! – some of you can live without it. In fact, you don’t even like chocolate. Oh, I don’t understand you – at all. But to each his own.
As Jason and Sydney took the girls home, I gave in to the pounding in my head. I gave in to the fact – the medicines that got me through the day – were no longer my friends. Admitting what was held at bay was mighty ugly. Much uglier than I thought. I gave up and stopped calling it “allergies” or “trip lag”. The tightness in my chest, the rasp in my voice, the deep rumbling cough, and the gunk in my head. Ugghhhh…..I felt bad. Real bad.
I admitted it. I have a cold. A nasty one.
And on their way home, Jason text me he was going by Wal-Mart and did I need anything? Did I ever? I needed an end-all be-all cure for the head, chest stuffiness of winter, of travel, and of no rest.
So I told him…….something to make me feel better. A cupcake? lol.
I was half-joking, but I knew he would know. Wouldn’t he?
I uploaded the photographs I took this evening for my 365 project. I took them of the girls playing with Sydney and I got a few poses in front of my studio lights I got for Christmas.
I did a little editing and really liked how this one of Bridget turned out. She is growing so fast. Oh, she steals my heart!
I never imagined it would be so hard to pick ONE photo per day, but it is. It really is…guess it’s a good thing I have many days left in this year’s project. I wonder if it will ever get boring? I am fascinated by this photo diary of life – fascinated.
Jason came home with his hand behind his back. A little smile. A little laugh. I felt my heart jump. There, there in his hand….
Chocolate, sweet chocolate.
It was as good as I thought it would be, every morsel, every chocolate-y goodness of every bite (yes, every one). I even managed to pick the coconut piece last. Score!
And you know what?
I feel better. I really do. Like I just ate a steaming hot bowl of home-made chicken noodle soup.
Chocolate – ahhhh!
Wonder how long before I need my next dose?
P.S.- Lovelovelove the caption entries. Soooo funny! I am so glad I picked Jason as the judge because I could not do it. I will announce the winner on Friday. It’s not to late to get yours in. Just see the below post and comment.
