I need an intervention

18 Jan

It’s no secret, folks.  I eat when stress arises.

Take last week for instance!  An email had been received by a colleague and I, and it sent us into a stress-induced tailspin.  I promptly retreated to my classroom to have a little bit of solace, and you know, plan my course of action.

Seconds later my colleague walked in, and through her copious laughter, she asked, “Are you stuffing your face with chocolate?!”

And yes, yes I was.  Cheap, knock-off chocolates, to be exact.  Because sometimes, when the road is uncertain, and the lesson planning makes me want to cry, only Trader Joe’s dark chocolate caramel bar with sea salt makes life more infinitely manageable.

And after I’ve eaten through my stash of fine chocolates AND cheap-os?  It’s time for a thrift shopping intervention.

Followed swiftly by a chocolate stash refill.

      I know, right?! And when my coworker walked in smack dab in the middle of this, I stuttered, “Uhh, just uhh, taking photos. Uh.” Classic.
