Arbor Mist Evening

Last night was an Arbor Mist evening, before dinner! I am not normally someone who drinks in the evening at home except for when I am socializing. But yesterday, I poured me a glass of wine before dinner. My children were driving me insane. All they did was bicker back and forth over everything. I poured myself a glass of wine and my youngest says "Mom, why are you drinking that?" My 19 year old replies, "Because, you guys are driving her to drink." Then my 11 year old son says "Mom, your going to die from liver failure and when you do, I am going to tell you it's your own fault." Too funny, that shows how little I do drink around the house, they start questioning why I am drinking.

When things get crazy around here and they are doing a lot of bickering, I start deducting 15 minutes from their bedtime for every time they argue and it usually works, because they hate going to bed early and missing their favorite shows. But, last night, it didn't work! They just kept going at each other. Their bedtime is 9:30. Last night, Sammy got herself down to 8:15 and Adam got himself down to 8:30. Keep in mind they get a warning before I start deducting time. They were so angry about having to go to bed early, they refused to give me a kiss goodnight. So, I told them "I love you and I know you love me too." They just glared at me and stomped off to bed. After a few glasses of wine, I was taking the evening in stride and found it inside of myself to find the situation humorous.
I can't wait for spring to get here, so they can go outside and play, ride their bikes and play with their friends. I think they are beginning to get cabin fever. Today is a half day at school, God help me.
