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!

Tree Huggers Beware

**WARNING**  If you are easily offended by the wasting of our world's natural resources, you might want to turn back now.  If you can appreciate creative young minds at work, read on.

The hubby and I recently had a fun night out on the town.  There was a dress, some super sassy high heels and even jewelry involved!  I know...this is huge!  I actually looked like a girl, instead of a taxi driver, maid, cook, laundress and sports mom.  It was really quite lovely, and I've decided we must make this a more normal occurrence.  A girl needs to feel like a girl sometimes, especially when one doesn't have any girls to live vicariously thru. ;)  While we were out, the big kid was in charge.  This usually works out quite well, but since he has learned how to communicate verbally over the phone with a girl, he is a little more distracted.  During his "marathon" (Little kid's word for it) conversation the younger two got bored and decided to "work on a few new ideas".  This is how that ended up....

The Terminator
The Master
The 16 Point Death Star
And they like to call this one 
"The Ex-Wife"

So, an entire ream of copy paper and 6 rolls of tape later the house was secure, and the boys had an arsenal of weapons Tony Stark could be proud of. ;)

The wine for today is Raw Power, it's a powerful shiraz that will make your taste buds happy!  What would make me happy is for someone to come thru with a shop vac and get all the prototypes off my floor! ;)

Happy Monday!
