Forty Days and Forty Nights
I gave up candy/chocolate for Lent. On Saturday, while at Target, I decided to get some candy to enjoy for Easter as a reward for sticking to it. Dove Chocolate Eggs and Reese's Mini PB Cups sat patiently on my kitchen counter for me to open on Sunday morning. I opened them up and had one each before church. When I came back from Mass, I attacked the bags full force. By 3PM, I felt like what former vegetarians do when they begin to eat meat again-- sick at my stomach. I gave it a rest and had some more chocolate today. Again, a bellyache. Does this mean my love affair with chocolate is over?
