Beer, Wine, Spirits; Fight the Frump with Booze!

Today is Friday and that means we're fighting the frump with Fussy! I had a hard time thinking of how to fight the frump today but I think I came up with something good.

It's wine... alcohol... what's your poison?

The thing is... everyone looks less frumpy after a couple of glasses of wine. You feel less frumpy after a couple of glasses of wine.

I've had a couple of glasses of wine and I feel less frumpy even though I'm sitting here in my sweatpants and stained nightshirt. The Man has had a couple of glasses of wine and he thinks I look less frumpy, too.


I think you can see where I'm going with this.

See... this evening was sort of rough. We took all three kids to my niece's middle school graduation and it probably wasn't the best idea. Three young children forced to sit through speeches, middle school musical performances, and the graduation of over 400 eighth graders... they got a little testy.

By the time we got home it was pretty late and the kids have their last day of school tomorrow so they needed to get to bed. It was chaotic. The Man and I were feeling a little frazzled. I definitely wasn't feeling my unfrumpiest. (Look! I made up a word!)

So after we got the little people to bed and had something to eat we broke open a bottle of Chardonnay. What do you know? We both feel SO much better.

Just make sure you only have a couple glasses. Know your limits frump fighters! Nobody looks frumpier than the hammered girl at the party.

P.S. Have you commented on my book giveaway yet? What are you waiting for? I'll be drawing a name tonight!

I am like a glass of wine on the weekends. I can't have too much because I put on like a pound or two per glass and it takes serious frump fighting to get it off the rest of the week. I am making Mojitos for the first time this weekend! Ever had those?

Oh, I am SO with you on this one! Chardonnay can change a day! ;) (BTW, I thought you were taking a little bloggy break as I hadn't gotten any updates of new posts through bloglines. When I went to your blog directly, I realized that I've missed like the last six posts! Don't know what that's about. I may have to try to resubscribe.)
