Did the title grab your attention? If it did, then it worked! NickMom really didn’t helped me realize I’m not a drunk, rather, NickMom helped me realize that a drink on Thanksgiving is warranted and necessary.
Being a parent is stressful enough. Add in Thanksgiving and a trip to the in-laws, and things escalate rather quickly! NickMom helped me realize I’m not a drunk, only a seasonal drunk, and that’s totally acceptable. I don’t handle stress very well. My crazy kids and hectic schedule keep me going non-stop, and my husband wonders why I’m a scrooge. When the holidays roll around, my inner scrooge emerges and I’m on countdown for it all to end. I’m that person that takes the tree down the day after Christmas; that’s how happy I am that it’s all over. Last year turned out a little different than I had planned. Before you continue reading this, you might want to grab for a glass of wine, and don’t feel guilty about drinking during the day, tis the season.
A little bit of this wine (above) will get me singing Amazing Grace to the Gilligan’s Island theme song, no lie. And in a house full of very religious people, that’s not a good idea.
