"Ya know, for hard times..."

Famous words from my mother in law. She always says that about an extra piece of chocolate, candy, or other treat.

Like if someone offers me a Hershey's Kiss or something, and I attempt to turn it down, she would say "oh, just take it and save it...ya know, for hard times".

She's wise, that woman.

I can not count the number of times I have appreciated her taking her advice when those hard times come and I reach in my purse and find a Dove chocolate waiting for me =).

Well, apparently I took her words to heart some time ago...

The other day I noticed myself feeling especially moody, bloated, and the like... and when I almost threw the remote across the room simply because it would not change channels fast enough, I knew it was time to reunite with My Friend Midol.

So I went to the medicine cabinet and grabbed the box...

And when I looked inside to see how many pills were left, my eyes took note of something strange inside the box...

...And what did I find when I pulled the something strange out??

Apparently, I had planned ahead for hard times.

This is hysterical! You are just too funny Kendra!
But there's nothing like feeling bloaty and moody, is there??! It's just plain awful, I know that. That part is not funny, and I know that feeling oh-so well. I hope the Laffy Taffy helped :) Last week all (and there were a LOT) of the Hershey's Miniature candy bars I inhaled helped me out!
Hope you have better day tomorrow.
Love,
Jen

My dad asked a lady at his work for some headache medicine once and she gave him what she had handy. (Bet you can see where this is going already, huh?) He came home and told my mom that she needed to buy some of what he took because it was the best thing he'd ever taken for headaches. She never told him what Midol is really for, nor did she buy him any.
