As The Wine [Does Not] Flow

Last Saturday, in an effort to detox from the holidays, I decided to forego all alchol for the remainder of the month.

(See also digital scales flashing RUH ROH at me instead of numbers.)

I may have picked a really bad week to quit drinking wine.

It’s looking like no school tomorrow and possibly Friday, which means being snowed in with two kids and two dogs and a karaoke machine and a Hungry Hungry Hippos game (i.e. the loudest freaking board game on the planet) and me wanting a glass of wine by 5 o’clock noon.

    Oh my gosh – that’s hysterical. Probably because that hit WAY too close to home. Good luck with the detox – if you can make it through a snow day without it, consider yourself “clean.” LOL

    And I know, ya’ll, that you Northerners are laughing at me jokingly freaking out about our big “snow in” but they will call off school if we have ANY precipitation at all.

    On a positive note I’ve lost about 2 pounds since I’ve quit drinking the vino and replaced my second morning cup of coffee with team. Booya!

    I hear ya! I actually used to never drink. If there was a wedding or something really special I would have a drink or two, but it rarely happened more than once a year.
    Now that I am old and have 7 kids, most of whom are teenagers, my body is failing me and I have insomnia and some weird nerve problem that my legs HURT if I lay down. My choices are: Ambien that makes you a freakin nut job AND narcotics for the pain or a bottle or two of beer that covers both that adds a lot of calories.
    I took up drinking. I also gave up the scale.

    Well in eastern north carolina we would love a little snow if its going to be this cold over 2/3 the US.

    Weather nowadays is just so unpredictable. But I bet if we just brush up on environmentalism, we can change a few things.

    This weather does make kids and parents crazy! I had to turn our downstairs into a makeshift play yard for my son and the two other 20 month old boys I watch. Some nights I really need that glass of wine! Cutting back is a great idea, especially since the holidays probably helped me add 4 lbs. It’s so hard to be active with this kind of weather!

    But you are remiss…. a glass of red wine a day is actually recommended. All those anti-oxidants and all. Just not more than that. 🙂
