Today was one of those day's when something really chocolaty was needed.
Something chocolaty, filled with white chocolate chips, semi sweet chocolate chips and maybe some nuts.
It was a day calling for Double Chocolate Chip Cookies with the fudgy chocolate center and crispy edges.
I was having one of those day's where my mind had a huge list of things I wanted to get done before the kids came home but my body barely let me load the dishwasher.
Forget about washing the piles of laundry from the week to make sure the kids have clean socks for tomorrow mornings basketball practice or cleaning the bathroom.
It just wasn't happening.
After I finally finished the dishes I did something I avoid doing and turned around and climbed back into my bed in my cozy P.J's and slept until the phone rang 2 hours later.
It was enough to help relieve some of the pain and allow me to whip up a batch of cookies to help distract anyone who might step foot in our house and see my living pile of laundry or the tooth paste splatters on the mirror in the kids bathroom.
I usually try to keep our cookie jar full in December but this year I've been behind, my house is messier then usual and I've had to learn to accept some things I just can't get done or that the kids don't clean as well as me.
For today loading the snowman cookie jar with Double Chocolate Chip Cookies was moved to the top of my list and it paid off because as I work on this post the kids are helping wash laundry and are thankful for the cookies.
