When life hands you lemons...

Today I am seriously wishing I had some delicious lemon treat to totally indulge in. Maybe lemon cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. But no such luck. So I drove through Dunkin Donuts and got a huge coffee and a chocolate frosted donut. Isn't it lovely that I'm eating this junk 4 days before my triathlon? But it was necessary.

You see, the universe was against me today. Today was supposed to be lovely...finish some patient reports, class, then Bible study. I was especially looking forward to Bible study because a friend's mom is in town and she made these AMAZING chocolate cake balls for us to snack on (we're talking chocolate cake dipped in more chocolate, drizzled with even more chocolate...pure heaven). So I get to work this morning and try to open one of the reports. These reports take about 8 hours to do, and I was almost done. Well, it seems that the ancient computer, with it's ancient edition of Word, screwed up the format of the report to the point that it would not even open. And it could not be recovered. All that work...down the drain. Did I mention it's due tomorrow?

So no Bible study with the girls for me tonight, and no deliciously blissful little chocolate cake balls either. It's going to be a long night. And I'm going to need some serious retail therapy tomorrow after I turn these reports in.

Ugh, that is the worst! I am so sorry that happened. I hope you were able to get everything done and that you can shop today.

The chocolate balls sound delicious. I hope they saved you some!
