Our life is full of wonderful, chaotic, blessed, hysterical, insane, magical, sad, scary, sweet, mind boggling, moments. While balancing life with 3 cherubs, parents, sisters, BIL, In-laws, 1 teaching career, and many good friends; I find that our life is moving far toooo fast. It is important to cherish and record the moments as we consistently try to balance our scale (God forbid I make a photo album)! MB

Ridin' the Current


Hubby & I went to a friends' wedding last night. True to the invitations words, 'cocktail reception', the guests were quite receptive to the cocktails. They were flowing. The flow was a tad too strong I think. Looking back now it was more like a strong cocktail current. I was no exception, I rode the current all night.

The only cocktail that I was missing was, In The Trenches, rlf, S's vitamin cocktail. She is like the Gestapo at 2am after a heavy night of drinking. She makes us all drink 2 HUGE waters while downing a handful of carefully selected vitamins. I would tell you the mix but to be honest, I don't remember (hello, keep up, it is always at least 2am after a heavy night of drinking). I just know she makes you take them and lists off the benefits while you drink away a vitamin C, and others? AND we love her for that because...

Whatever current you have ridden on any given night, if you follow her directions, your handova will not come. So...like I said I was missing both S and her cocktail. This morning, feeling good? Notsomuch.

I called S part way through the night to tell her I was gearing up for our girls weekend (a mere 11 days away!). I bought a pack of cigarettes last night. My first pack eva. To be clear, I don't smoke. I hate the smell of smoke, the taste of smoke and the smell of it on people's hair, breath and clothes. However, every year when I go away with my girls, I turn into the closet smoker (after riding a strong cocktail current). So I only smoked one, horrified hubby and myself and giggled as I stored the rest for our trip.

Needless to say, after many cocktails, partaking in a rotten stinkin' habit, minus S's cocktail was the recipe to a nice big, well deserved hangova.

This post is so cryptic that even a husband can't figure out what "S" and "rlf" means. What is the KGB? I believe S is Sarah. If so, then I have to say "THANK YOU" for getting my darling wife hooked on cigarettes at 1am. Since MB is a pro now at buying cigarettes, she gets to the counter and sais "I would like to buy a pack of cigarettes!". the sleepy indian gentleman sais "What kind?" MB responds "Oh, I have no idea!". What a Pro! Thanks Sarah!

Bri-
It was my pleasure to welcome your wife to The Dark Side. She came quite willingly, I must say!

I promise to try not to turn her into a chain smoker by the end of the weekend.

And I also promise to have the hangover cure (a chewable Vitamin C, 4 Advils and 2 bottles of water) all ready for MB before she passes out - so that she's on her game for LOTS OF SHOPPING the next day.

You can thank me later.
