Reasons to Drink Wine Today

I’m going to keep it short and sweet and really just give you my top 5 reasons why I will be drinking wine today:

  1. My husband is going away for work – for 5 weeks! *tears, pride, & fear of solo-parenting for that long!*
  2. It’s very cold, I hate the cold. Tomorrow will be colder.
  3. I have to spend an hour sitting outside my kid’s dance practice, on the floor, outside! – Did I mention it’s cold?
  4. After dance practice I have to go watch my eldests swimming practice at the gym – I’m pretty sure I’m wasting my money at the moment because she is an awesome swimmer now and the ‘lessons’ are more for her enjoyment than to teach her to swim. Then after the lesson I will end up fighting with her because she will not allow me to dry her hair before running out of their faster than I can run, *cue me chasing after her yelling like a mother who has lost control of her kids, garnering numerous judgemental looks from the gym bunnies with their perfect pony tails!*, out into the cold air where she will promptly catch a cold! Watch this space!
  5. I have a to-do list that looks like this and none of it has been done yet:

The one’s with stars on are my priorities! Isn’t my rose gold glitter Typo pen pretty?

How’s your wine-day looking?

  1. Ha! Love a good hand-written to-do list. Just so satisfying to cross that stuff off! I’ll envision you leaning back, ankles crossed and legs up, drinking your bottle and doing just that. Good luck commencing the 5 weeks!!

  2. You definitely deserve a glass of vino lovely. Hubby 5 weeks away – I wouldn’t know how to cope. Good luck, I’m sure you’ll be fine. #humpdaylinky

  3. Hows about I try this #HumpDayLinky thing too? My first Linky – I will probably not link all the right things and right places! Good luck with the long absence, that sucks! It’s summer here, it’s cold and rainy which is a good reason to drink wine, except I have to pretend I like getting fit and drive to rowing tonight, except it’s raining so it might be cancelled. 😀

  4. 5 weeks? You need an endless supply! My husband used to travel a fair amount…I also had these wonderful plans to stay drunk the entire time he was gone, but these doggone kids don’t even give me a chance to have one glass. I hope you have better luck! ha ha

    That pen is gorgeous, I just could not bring myself to pay so much for a pen. lol
