I didn’t plan to celebrate all of these national observances, but this one caught my eye and I feel compelled to honor it. Whether it’s milk chocolate or dark you prefer, today is a day to just smile and give in. Okay, I don’t want anyone to break their diet on my say-so. But for the rest of you chocolate lovers, go for it.
I’m celebrating a couple of other things as well. I saw my neurosurgeon today and found out that all of those compression fractures that put me in a brace have healed and there are no new fractures to report.
On Monday I start a new job, one that won’t require any lifting, which was what got me in trouble with my back to start with. I’m excited and nervous about this new job, which is natural, I suppose.
So I’m going down to that fancy chocolate shop today to get myself a small something and say, “things are looking up.”
