We Would Make Lousy Drunks!

Did I catch your attention with that title?

While we were at the store last weekend, Jon picked up a corkscrew that was marked down at Wal-mart. He discovered as he was taking it out of the bag at home that the screw part was broken.

Thursday, while the older five children and I were at Homeschool P.E., Jon and Little Bear took the corkscrew back to Wal-mart. That afternoon, we went back out to run our errands and Jon bought a sturdier corkscrew and a bottle stopper. Thursday night, as we were fixing supper, Jon opened our bottle of wine. We were being silly, smelled the cork, and both made faces. Gross! We weren't even sure if we could get past the smell. Jon poured some, and we both took a sip. It tasted just as bad as it smelled. Jon dumped the wine he had poured down the sink. Jon informed me that he didn't mind if I wanted to cook with the wine. I guess I'll get to put the wine recipe book (that we won years ago) to the test. LOL

Kids, you have nothing to worry about!

yeah, wine tastes nasty! so does beer, champagne, and most everything else that's less than 100 proof

I agree with tmbmt! Allen might have some wine recipes for you. I'll ask him.

Goodness Brandi its been forever since Ive been over here. Where have you been? Better yet, where have I been? LOL I see your date on this post is February. Are you still blogging or are you blogging somewhere else? Do you want to join back up with my diet blog this year? Shoot girl, Im missing you!

Brandi said...

I'm still around, Mrs. Darling. I'm just tired and our blog got shoved to the bottom of my list. I skipped the weigh-in when you went to the convention and then we were gone all day this last Thursday. Friday, Jon and I went to his work banquet. Saturday, was our Sunflower Scouts father/daughter masquerade. I may blog about our weekend later.

Well take care of yourself first. Is there a physical reason why you are tired? You're not sick are you? I know, I know, life makes a person tired. But I just hope there's no health reason. Love ya!

Brandi said...

I don't think there is a health reason, at least no more than usual.

We're all having a hard time adjusting to Jon's second shift schedule. We could just switch over to his schedule ourselves, but church, homeschool gym, and so many other things are on a first shift schedule. We are sort of caught in limbo. The kids have been making more messes than they help clean up. They've been fighting more and testing us constantly.

Hmm...maybe I should just post instead of creating the world's longest comment.

I could never be a wino either. Hate booze in general... unless it's the very rare margarita or slo-gin fizz (yes, you are too young to even know what SGFs are!)

Hope you are feeling better by now. Hate to hear that you've been down. xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

I am feeling better. I think I was just run down.
