Guys!! It's March!

I made it!! The last three years the month of February has been super-craptastic for me. I don't know if it's Seasonal Affective Disorder, or long Wisconsin winters...oh wait, are those the same thing?! I DO know that last year it was because my mom had just died, but whatever the reason, the month of February has been absolutely heinous for me for several years running.

Until now, baby, until now.

A couple of weeks ago I realized that we were halfway through the month and IT WASN'T AWFUL!!!

It was a big moment. :)

And now the month is officially over, and I can say with certainty that it was better than in years past. Maybe I have broken the curse.

Valentine's Day 2014 - aka, "the day Margaret's love for chocolate milk came back to bite her."

Yeah, see, my jar of chocolate milk leaked in my lunch bag, which I didn't notice until I saw the drops of milk across my desk at work as I put my lunch bag in the usual spot. (I wonder what the seat of my car looks like?!) So I went to the break room to clean it up - yup, my lunch was swimming in 1/2 inch of chocolate milk at the bottom of my apparently-only-partially-waterproof lunch bag.

It wouldn't have been that big a deal, I mean, every item in my lunch was in a tupperware-like container, but today was also the day I decided to restock my supply of chocolate at work, so the contents of my lunch bag included a bunch of M&M' a paper sack.

So the truth that I have learned on this day of chocolate is, as one of my co-worker pointed out, M&M's melt in your mouth, not in your hand, unless they are swimming in milk.

And also - I should make sure the lid and the jar go together.
