Now That the Rain Has Come, and Gone

So we finally got to see the sun this morning.  That last time we saw it was last Sunday. That was a really long time of off and on rain, sometimes heavy, for 7 days.  We were lucky and didn't get the flooding that happened south of us in Colorado. It did usher in a more fall like feel, but got kind of dreary after a while.

Friday evening I got a girl's night out.  We had drinks, conversation, and then headed home. Once I got home, Nick had a friend from college who was in town for a visit so we had drinks on the back deck.  I maybe had a few too many.  Saturday morning was rough for me.  I was more than a little hungover. Haven't done that in a really long time.  I think what got me was the mixing of alcohols.

 Anyhangover, Saturday was mostly a bust for me.  I was a complete bum. Nick ran errands, helped his folks, I laid on the couch. This did not get any laundry done.  The dishes piled up. By afternoon, I was sort of feeling better and was able to resume more normal mom duties.

Sunday was a lazy day.  I got more laundry done (which has been mating in the dark and making an obscene amount of laundry). I even made dinner, clam chowder. However, Turbo came down with a sore throat and bruiser has a nasty cough.  So today, I'm home with them both as couch lumps. Fun times.

So how did your weekend go?  Hopefully better than ours did.  I could have done without the self inflicted brown bottle flu.


  1. We had a great weekend but I too suffer a bit from an over-consumption of alcohol, lack of proper sleep and too much sun. By 7pm on Saturday I was sleep.

    Sorry the kiddos are sick. Gives you another day to play catch up anyway.

  2. I haven't been hungover in a long time and truthfully, I'd like to keep it that way!

  3. I wish we could get some of that rain out here. It is dry, dry, dry. Last time I had a hangover was after the Grease Sing-a-Long, when the mommies consumed quite a few Pink Lady cocktails. It makes you feel so stupid. How did I DO that?
