The W(h)ine Hour..

Every household has one…the whine hour. It’s those bewitching hours between approximately 5 and 8pm in the evening when the kids go crazy and moms across the world lose their minds completely. It doesn’t matter if you have babies, toddlers, kids, tweens, or teens; those hours of dinner/homework/bath time/ bedtime can just about do a momma in. What is a girl to do? It’s simple and brilliant actually, just slip in a little wine of your own! Now, I’m not suggesting anyone down a bottle of whiskey everyday between the hours of 5 and 8, in fact if you do that you will have a few whine hours of your own the next morning. Basically, a little wine during the whine hours will keep you out of the padded cell at the local cookoo house where people will walk by and peek in your little window and say things like “aww, poor mom has lost her marbles” and “hmmm, now that’s a crazy one right there, sits in there all day and hits herself over the head with a Barbie and a hotwheel”. Don’t smirk, it can happen.

So, enjoy the tales of my whine hour, and how I survive each and everyone of one of them with a sense of humor and a good bottle of wine! After all, the whine hour comes around every single day, a girl has to be prepared!

It's Time To Find the Humor Again

Well, here it is another month gone by without time to find the blog.  To be honest, I've had a little trouble even finding my sense of humor the last couple of months, and really, who wants to hear about that?  Not even me. ;)  Occasionally the craziness of life with three boys sneaks up on me and I completely forget how to stop and smell the roses.  I hate it when that happens because it's so not me.  So, I am now officially slowing myself down at least for a few minutes everyday to find something funny in this insane world I live in.  The blogs may be short but they will include something that touched me that day either because it was funny or sweet or maybe just a yummy new recipe and the children's reaction to it.   In the end it will be a nice little grouping of articles that I can hand over to the boys one day.  I am quite certain that at some point they will all need some sort of therapy and doggoneit I want those therapists to know my side of the story. ;)

And, let's not forget a wine choice.  It is always advisable to locate a good bottle of wine before the whine hour begins.  Even at 9, 12 and almost 15 there is still a whine hour.  The face of that whine has changed and now has rolling eyes, a deeper voice and occasionally a naughty word in it, but it's still real whiney.  I stand by the fact that all whine is made more tolerable by a little wine. ;)

Today's wine is Whoop Whoop cabernet.  In celebration of the return of my sense of humor I'm gonna have a glass, dance around my kitchen and "raise the roof"!

Happy Wednesday! :)

Welcome back!!! You're on my list of everyday blogs I read, so it was with great excitement that I noticed an updated post.

Life gets a bit like that at times. I'm realising how important it is for me to find even ten minutes of 'me time' each day or I'm nobodies friend (especially my children's).
