My kids drive me to drink!
I want wine. Like really badly.
I now realize why I usually start drinking around 4:00 or 5:00 P.M…because my kids are RAGING LUNATICS at that hour!
I seriously thought I was going to have a meltdown, which is why it is 6:16 P.M. and I am hiding in my bedroom typing on my laptop.
Update: It is now 8:14 P.M.
The children are asleep and I am back in my bedroom flipping back and forth between The Walking Dead reruns and The Hangover.
I’m drinking Pellegrino out of a stemless wine glass and feeling pretty classy.
The urge to have wine in my glass has thankfully passed. Having the seltzer seems to have tricked my mind somehow.
So if you’re ever feeling desperate, try pouring a different beverage in a wine glass. It may help.
It rained all day here, so it was kind of a lazy Saturday.
I did make it to Kohl’s with 2/3 of my kids.
The plan was to find some nice fall decorations, maybe some Halloween stuff.
What did I walk out with?
Bags of toys.
I swear I am not buying any more toys until Christmas. Maybe I should be doing a 30 Day Frivolous Spending Detox.
My kids also got into the Halloween decoration box today. I had gone into the basement to look for my fall wreath (which I still can’t find).
My daughter followed me downstairs and found the box labeled “HALLOWEEN” and immediately opened it up.
And that was that. It was suddenly Halloween in our house.
There are now pumpkins everywhere, we have all the Halloween books out, and we even have a festive display on our kitchen table. (Check it out on my Instagram here.)
Of course, my four-year-old couldn’t understand that it wasn’t exactly Halloween yet.
“So we are going trick-or-treating tonight?” he asked me a zillion times.
“NO. Halloween is in, like, 59 more days. So you better chill out,” I told him.
Last year he had a stomach bug on Halloween so he missed trick-or-treating. I don’t think he really understood that he missed it, so he has been obsessed with the holiday ever since.
It’s like he was ready for it last year, but then it never happened…in his mind, anyway.
He has already told me he wants to be Batman, then that changed to a Ninja Turtle, and that changed to Maui from Moana.
I mean, I get it. I’ve been sampling all the Halloween candies out there to see which is my favorite.
Candy corns? Still gross.
Kit-Kats? STILL AWESOME.
Anyways, I’m glad this fall-ish weather has me thinking about other things than my lack of wine.
I don’t even think it feels like Labor Day Weekend…do you??
