Wow. What a day... Is it Friday yet? Can we officially claim the week as o-v-e-r??? This is a gift bag that is *supposed* to be full of chocolate... Lemme go over the details of the project first, and then I'll enthrall you with why it's not full of chocolate at the moment (beside the fact that I probably would have EATEN the whole bag after this week so far....)

So... Why isn't the bag filled with chocolate??? Well, my original plan was to stop at Wally-World after I dropped The-Girl-Child off for the away basketball game she was off to cheer for... But... Well, there were other plans for us that involved a car over the center line, icy roads, a snowy ditch, and, um... oh, yeah... that tree. Thank Jesus we are safe, and (as my mom said) cars can be fixed... And leave it to The-Girl-Child to hug me after we returned home and remind me that 'it coulda been worse!' Wise women from the generation before and the generation to follow :) We were only a half mile from home, kind people stopped to check on us, and my husband and father-in-law pulled us out of that ditch. As for me... Well, I'm ready to curl up with a bag full of chocolate and wait til Winter goes away!! (Guess I should also be thankful that I didn't get to Wally-World to buy that chocolate first!! Ha ha!!).
