Would you like some Wine?

No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth after my son's 1st birthday! It's just been one of those weeks already and it's only Tuesday night! The past two nights I have spent working until 10 pm trying to get work done and unfortunately it looks like the rest of the week may be like that as well. So if my posts are sparse then you'll know why.

Of course the older two children have not been helping much with my mood either. Both of them spent most of the day in their room today because they just couldn't behave. And of course when their punished its even harder for me to get work done because Boy 2 is reaking havoc by himself!

Shitface knew that I was having a rough day so he brought home a bottle of wine for us to enjoy after I got my work done for the night - or in this case - halfway through my work :-)

When I went to get the bottle - I couldn't find it. I eventually found it in the fridge which wouldn't have been bad - we generally get a white wine - but this time it was merlot. Here was the rest of our conversation:

Me: Honey, next time you buy merlot you shouldn't put it in the fridge. It's generally should be room temperature when drinking.

Him: Ok, you'll have to remind me of that next time I buy it.

Me: Ok, well next time you buy any red wine - don't put it in the fridge.

Him: Ok, you'll have to tell me which one is red because if I can't see into the bottle, I can't tell what color it is.

Me: Ok, well if the bottle is dark - it's generally red - and don't put it in the fridge. If you can see through the bottle you should put it in the fridge.

Him: Ok. Now that I may be able to remember.

Did I forget to tell you that my husband is definately no wine-o!! I'm not claiming to be either - but I am trying to pass my little wine information down to him. One day he'll learn - MAYBE!

Now I know why I don't like wine - too damn many rules. Red = warm. White = cold. This is good with fish. This one is good with beef. This one is from Italy. This one is from Australia. That one is from New York. Smell it first. Let it breathe. Cleanse your palette before you try a different one. Swirl the glass around. Have some cheese with that. Gads.
Gimme an ice cold beer.

If I had to listen to that conversation in person, I'd definitely be LOL!

What do you have to say?


This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
