He’s a sneaky one that ex of mine. He really gets around! But in reality we are only on a temporary break. I miss him a lot. Like, as far as the east is from west, a lot!  I’d like almost nothing more than to make my famous buttercream icing and lick the beater like my children clamor to do when I bake. Sigh, I guess the only thing better would be dropping some lbs and resetting my numbers on this diabetic scale.  Yeah, that would be awesome. But just case I have a weak moment i secretly carry around this delectable Dulce De Leche candy. image It’s my temptress and my warning. Some days it narrowly escapes being secretly devoured in my closet/bathroom/ garage- anywhere my children with the supersonic ears can’t hear the crinkling of the cellophane or smell the Carmel-y aroma. It’s quite a load to bear, but it’s survived this long. And so have I. Y’all keep praying for me. I have 10 days left. Oh the agony! 🙂
