    One of my favorite Super Bowl ads was the one with the RAV4 Genie, because I wish a doctor would tell me my chocolate levels were dangerously low and prescribe more chocolate!

    Chocolate! Nothing like it. Hope you all get some. Happy Day all.

    AACK! (That was for you, rgcviper .) With all the pressures of Valentine’s Day looming, I bet Cathy is going to be more of a neurotic mess than usual over the next week! Good morning to SUSAN, PhoebeDog, and ncalifgirl58 and hello to the rest of the Clan yet to come. Almost Friday!

    Eh, who cares about nutritional value on a gift of Valentine’s candy?
    I wonder if Irving will give her a gift, or if it’s too soon in their relationship…

    Hello Cathy Clan!! I’m much later than usual. Today is non-stop busy and they’re starting work on our basement (painting now, more later when the painting is done), so I’ll have strange hours until they’re done.
    Have a wonderful day! Hope anyone in the Northeast (Susan… anyone else?) doesn’t get bombarded with the snow.

    Rant alert.
    Seven days until the elementary school forces us to write120 names on meaningless sentiments the kids could care less about. (2 kids x 30 students per class, and we are required to fill out who it is from and to by hand). Nice waste of $10 and 2 hrs.
    Rant concluded.

    Thats Right. Leave the Nutrition Facts off. Just state in Large Bold Print on the box if it contains Peanuts. I want to enjoy myself without worrying about how many pounds I going to gain, but I don’t want to commit suicide eating Peanuts. I already spent one Valentines day in ER after eating Key Lime Pie that had peanut flour in the crust. Who puts peanut flour in a pie crust? OH!!!! I hate cherries! Label that too!

    I agree! Although I make my kids write ‘em…
    For me, it’s the decorating a box that I dislike.

    You think you have it bad — exactly a week later, it’s my birthday and my husband is throwing me a big party. I may never get all the extra pound off since diet food isn’t on the menu!

    keep it in the fridge and eat one or two a day.

    I know something like this is a real pain for you and your kids but try not to think of it so much as a resentful, unwanted, unnecessary burden they force you into doing because “it’s the rule” but more as a teaching experience for ALL children in the act of kindness towards their fellow classmates who maybe, through no fault of their own, have so much less in their home lives than everyone else seems to and, therefore, are less popular than the rest of the kids . . . which ultimately results in them getting fewer — if any — little Valentine’s Day cards at all. It can be a pretty painful, humiliating experience to be singled out that way.


    And in case you’re wondering — yes, I speak from experience. You can grow up and even move on from those ugly childhood hurts, but that doesn’t mean you ever forget how it felt to be left out of little card exchanges like this when everyone else wasn’t.

    If Cathy’s that upset over the “offensive” nutrition facts on that large box of Valentine’s candy she’s holding, maybe she should just forget about it and buy herself a small candy bar or bag of M&M’s instead. She’ll still get a little taste of the chocolate she’s craving but she’ll also get a whole lot less the calories, fat, sugar and everything else in it that’s bad for her too. Plus, all the money she saves by not buying that huge, expensive box of chocolates can be spent on frivolous crap at the mall she doesn’t need or will ever wear once she takes it home. How about that, Cathy?! A silver lining in that particular dark cloud of yours!!!!! ;-)


    Hi, rgcviper!


    lightenup: I changed my avatar in honor of our dear friends, Aaron, Dr. Billy and LMB too! Hopefully wherever they are, they’re safe, they know we’re thinking about them and that they’ll come back to us again soon. Miss them so much!!!!! :-(


    Hello and Happy Thursday, fellow “Cathy” nuts! Hope everyone had a really great day today!

    RIght – 50+ pounds from eating 5 pounds of chocolate. Funny how that seems to work!

    @lightenup and @GretchensMom – love the avatar changes. I hope they come back too.

    Cathy doesn’t work that way. If she starts eating something, she automatically feels compelled to eat the whole thing in one sitting. Irving once asked her why, if he could just have a taste and leave the rest, SHE couldn’t just have a taste and eat the rest. Her answer? “Men date — women have relationships.”
