On drinking...

I will warn you now, this whole story is kinda pathetic. I'm not sure if I should be proud or ashamed of myself, but honestly I am neither. I just find the entire situation extremely funny. I, at 31 years old, finally got drunk for the first time.

J, the baby and I went to a friends wedding this Saturday. It was a nice wedding with a huge party at Maple Lake Clubhouse afterward. We had lots of fun. A and I danced while the hubby bs'ed with his buddies.

I am always the designated driver, but J decided he wasn't in the mood to drink. It was getting late and A was beginning to wind down and I thought a glass of wine sounded pretty good. My hubby made it his mission to get me drunk.

I'm not sure how much I actually drank. Every time I picked up my glass it was full. I finally got smart and quit setting it down. By the end of the glass I couldn't stop laughing. J had to carry our sleeping baby to the car while helping me stand up.

The car ride home was miserable! I have never been so sick in my life. My poor hubby had to take care of our daughter then carry me into the house and help me get my pjs on. I could not stand up at that point.

J thinks the whole situation was the funniest thing he has ever seen. All his buddies have called to congratulate me on my first drunk, they are so proud that they contributed to my drunkenness.

All I can say is it was one interesting evening! If I recall correctly I even had a really hot guy sitting on my lap at one point. Nice!

Conversation with my daughter

While walking across our yard last night after dark:

A: I wish I had a cape.

Mom: Why? What would you do with a cape?

A: I would fly up to the moon and bring it down so I could look at it.

Mom: That sounds like it would be fun.

A: Well...maybe not. Ants might eat the moon all up and then I couldn't see at night.

I love these conversations with my two year old!!! They make me smile.


Today is a good day. I'm not sure why.

It's just one of those happy to be alive days!
Just wanted to share some of my happiness.

My fortune....

I collect fortunes. You know, the ones from fortune cookies. I have received two lately that have made me stop and think about things in my life.

* Begin nothing until you have considered how it is to be finished.

* The courage to be great lies deep within each of us.

These have both affected the way I handeled situations in my life.
