Drunken Barbie???

Hi all! Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers regarding my sister in law. In these last few weeks I have seen our faith stretched more than I thought possible - it is amazing what one can do when pushed to the limits!

So 4th of July was great - well let me start by saying that it didn't start out so well. Things were rolling along just fine - I was doing my usual cooking (I LOVE to cook) when I looked down and realized that, UH OH - here comes the swelling. I had been on my feet too long evidently and suddently I resembled a watermelon - great - nothing like "sloshing" around instead of walking!! Of course we are headed out to some friends for a bbq and I am having a freaking breakdown - now these are my bestest buds in the world - really we have been through "THICK & THIN" together but still - who the hell wants to wear a girdle to a 4th of July picnic - ummmmm - not my idea of a good time. So I soak in a tub, lay down, exercise, push, pull and finally just have a meltdown - of course my dear hubby walks in during all of this and he was clueless - his expression was one of pure shock and absolute horror........what the hell is wrong with you and WHY are clothes thrown all over the bedroom - my response resembled that of a dying piglet - crying, wailing and was bad!! So after much persuasion we get in the car and I decide that my only goal for the evening is to girls - I am a cheap date! 1 - let me say it again - 1 drink and I am toast........not to mention that the only thing that I had eaten all day was some yogurt for breakfast........yeah - obviously at this point, I was acting more and more like a Barbie (as in brainless). So without another thought I make up my mind to get drunk.......all the while knowing that I had to work, knowing that I hadn't eaten, knowing that should I puke, I will get vomit in my hair!!!

Let me just say that 2 rum and diet cokes later and I was barely walking.........could I be any more of a baby - the only consolation to being such a lightweight is that I don't have to waste a lot of calories on alcohol. I AM glad that I remember most of everything - I clearly remember spilling corn casserole all over the floor and in the oven!! YUCK! I also remember that it was so nice not to think about how I looked..........although being intoxicated is probably not the best way to forget your beauty blue's it was nice to just let my Barbie hair down for a bit!! I hung out with people that loved me and I felt totally comfortable around.......drunk or not! We watched great fireworks - I didn't do bad foodwise and I had a great time!! So.......for 2 shots of rum, $100 in fireworks and $50 in groceries I got a great night - a sucky day but great night!

Now if all of that would have gotten me the day off today - it would have been AWESOME!!!
