This isn't what I was going to write about today, at all.
No, I'm supposed to be dieting, remember?
Hmmm … I think I blew it already.
My daughter returned safely from her spring break trip and is now back at college.
Did you know I gave birth to her when I was only a toddler?
It might have been a miracle.
While she was gone she visited Finland, Russia, Belgium, and Estonia.
Some of you live in those very places.
She had a great time and returned with gifts.
She brought an entire box of them home. They are pure, rich, sweet, goodness.
I have readers in Belgium. I'd just like each and every one of them to know I can be bribed with chocolate.
It's a terrible weakness.
Especially when I have PMS.
She also brought home chocolate waffles. I had never heard of chocolate waffles before.
They are about three inches across … about the size of a large American cookie. They're crisp like a cookie also. They were made by Dumon Chocolatier and they're to die for. Honestly, they are perhaps the best treat I've ever experienced. Someone needs to hide them from me because I absolutely can't resist them. I could eat a bazillion of them in one sitting – they are that good!
I think maybe they're just cookies in a waffle shape?
I really need to do some traveling. I haven't been to Europe in years. Her photos brought back all sorts of memories. The hotel she stayed at in Belgium was right on a canal.
Belgium is nothing like Orange County.
Of course, no place is like Orange County.
I live in a strange little bubble filled with sunshine, beautiful beaches, and plastic real-life Barbies.
Please send chocolate!
(I better go exercise now ….)
