Honestly, Do These Things Only Happen To Me

Yes, the toes again and also my husband's idea of romantic sleepwear! However, if you look closely at toe number two you will see a bruise on the side of it. I have a hungry little critter that creeps around in my kitchen when I am not looking. He sneaks into the chocolate chip stash, gnaws apart the bag and blasts chips all around the cupboard. Periodically, I have to relocate the chocolate chips so as to keep them protected.

A new spot was found, high on top of the cupboard in a large decorative bowl. The chips were hidden and safe. The next day, I'll blame it on pre-menopause, I was craving a small handful of chocolate chips to take the edge off. Some people have coffee, some other vices, mine is chocolate! I reach up to grab the bowl and can not quite reach it. Did I shrink overnight? Stretch a little farther, up on tip toes and .......... I swear I could even hear it.......POP! My toe pops out of joint. Is my calcium level that low? This is quite pathetic. Mega pain and guilt. Am I being punished for hiding chocolate chips? Is there no mercy anymore?

So here it is, my confession of how I sprained my toe, public for the world to see, and the picture of the critter partially responsible.....

Sorry about the toe I know that hurts and it will forever!
I love the mouse too funny! Lots of laughing going on here in Ohio!

Glen also has a need to consume chocolate chips and needs to keep them hidden from Scott and Melissa. He has lately given up on doing so. Although I am not a fan of chocolate necessarily, I feel your pain. Great job with the mouse!
