My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Comfort Foods

Lately my comfort food has been chocolate kisses. This is a stressful time of year for me, which I should be used to after 25 years of teaching. It changes every few years. Here is the list over the years: chocolate graham crackers, soft pretzels, olives (low carb dieting times), sunflower seeds in shells (I thought if I had to crack them, I wouldn't eat so much!), macaroni and cheese (college years). 2 years ago when I had my hysterectomy, I was told I couldn't push, pull, lift or bend, so the only thing I could do was...eat! I ate a bag of Hershey kisses every week. No wonder I gained 20 lbs! I am still eating them to this day but not so much. Now I walk 2-3 miles a day and try to limit myself to 4 kisses per night (just to take the edge off the sugar craving)! No walking= no kisses! I wonder what food will be next?

I hope you had a friend to "help" you eat those kisses!!!! I'm sensing a trend here with all the chocolate!

Anything called chocolate kisses has got to be good for your soul.
