In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, and baking soda. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and blend well.

Now personally, I LOVE MINT! Mint and chocolate are divine together. I really want to come up with a mint frosting to put ontop. I also want to replace the mint with vanilla and figure out some sugar free marshmallow to put ontop like chocolate clouds? Yum.
But, for now...these are pretty durn good.
Life...has been all sorts of crazy for me. But that's okay. I am SO looking forward to May. Tax season will be over, my classes will be over, I will be a CPA, and all I'll have to worry about is fun stuff like a garden, cooking, sewing, etc. Can't wait.
Our appointment went well. Not TOO much to report. Clay is basically the same, I mean...he's continually improving but basically on the same treatment plan. I am going to start weening off of antibiotics! Can I get a YAHOOOO! I can't wait! These next two months I'm going to be doing two weeks antibiotics, two weeks herbs, two weeks antibiotics, two weeks herbs, etc. I told my doctor everything about how I am basically symptom free but still have achey joints sometimes. Its often enough that I don't think its like normal people, but its a different kind of ache than I used to have. She said that the reason it feels different is because I don't have as much inflammation as I used to. She also said that there's no way to know if it's something I'll just deal with and have because the Lyme could have permanently damaged my tissues...or something. But she gave me this new pill that is supposed to repair cells, so hopefully that helps! I am overall pretty happy with how the appointment went. We are probably still looking at about a year away for thinking about having babies. Which is sucky, but that's okay. I am confident that my babies are up there anxiously but patiently waiting and rooting us on.
Well, I am going to go in the bedroom and get some well deserved tv relaxation time :)
