How to hove a gad Valttimes dae

Just the other day I was telling my sister how downright easy it was getting to go without sugar, but I forgot the very important caveat: AS LONG AS NO ONE PUTS IT IN FRONT OF ME.

Today was the last day of school for the week, so of course Mik came home with a bunch of pink cookies and fun-sized candy and lollipops and (ooooh) conversation hearts. My mom, a first-grade teacher, also left us with her own bag of school goodies before jetting away for the weekend. (Mom, we threw out all your cards, but Daniel hops you hove a gad Valttimes dae.) The teacher treats were way more tempting—more of the nicer chocolates and stuff.

I knew holidays in general were going to be a challenge, but I plum forgot how much I adore goodies that are heart-shaped or come in heart-shaped boxes. That makes Valentine's Day probably the toughest holiday to get through, except that I just remembered how much I also particularly enjoy a certain egg-shaped chocolate confection. The Egg Which Will Remain Nameless.

Oh, well. I coped, if you want to know, by picking out some of the best chocolates and handing them over to M.H. to hide for me until January 2014. (Don't think I'll forget.) Plus I made more magic brownies and decided, as I was eating them, that my destiny probably lies in creating more delicious sugar-free Paleo treats and selling bajillions of cookbooks. Such genius should really not be wasted.

  1. I'm so glad my valentine isn't eating chocolate and candies...makes my life so much easier. However, there are those displays at stores.
