Y'all. We are seriously half way through October, still "enjoying" the 80's here and only a short 9 WEEKS from Christmas!! There I said it. Nine weeks to Christmas followed up with, "What the heck!" And what happened to fall weather?? I swear, if we jump from summer to winter with 5 days of fall-like weather, I cannot be held responsible for my attitude.
Last Friday, Scott wandered into my office with a red solo cup and immediately, I asked, "What's that???"
Unfortunately, it was not a tasty beverage but a candy corn snack mix. I passed on it after realizing the fun orange candy was malt balls. Gag. He wanted just a few and was passing them out in the office. We share all the things around here.
Earlier in the week, a friend gave me a container of caramel-milk chocolate covered almonds. Anyone that brings chocolate to me is a very, very good friend actually. I wanted to share them with everyone so I would not be tempted to eat the entire box in one afternoon.
Nick and AmberLeigh share a workspace (how cute are they above?) and I often hear them chatting away and having all the fun. They are actually fun to listen to and I often think, Oh to be young again!
I left for an appointment and Nick and AmberLeigh were enjoying the chocolate. Apparently after a few minutes of AmberLeigh clearing her throat multiple times, Nick asked her, "Are you okay?"
She replies, "I think so. I don't think I'm allergic to almonds, but since I'm allergic to pretty much everything, it might explain why I'm having trouble breathing and clearing my throat."
This story was relayed to me when Scott was passing out the candy corn snacks. AmberLeigh says to me, "Marsha! You tried to kill me this week."
As she tells the story, Nick pipes in from the other room to also say, "Keep in mind that after AmberLeigh said she might be allergic and can't breathe, she actually ate a few more!"
AmberLeigh can't deny it. Not only is she like the rest of us and addicted to chocolate, she is also addicted to houseplants. Aren't we all .... am I right? We are addicted to all the things green and orange this time of year. We simply cannot get enough!
