Googling Moscow Mule....

Get's it.

Hope tomorrow goes better for you.

I just plugged in my heated blanket. In summer. All these HUGE infants are making me so sore I can't raise my arms or turn my neck. I don't remember 9-10 month olds being this huge. Wait, I also don't remember being this old and tired.

Have a great night!!

I can see the stress flowing out of you as you sip your drink. Enjoy! And I agree, looking pretty and happy for being so stressed from dc.

Every Friday I tell myself I'm going to relax with a drink, then when kids leave, it's just me here and nobody to make me a drink. By then, I'm too lazy and tired. Lol

During the week its relax in my recliner for 10 mins before moving onto other chores or things that need to be done.
On friday its my day to go out to eat and get a drink
I do not drink at all during the week. I don't know why cause I just feel like I can't. Then again I only usually have one at dinner to "reward" myself for working so hard all week.
I will say on Friday I have my husband load our kids in our car 10 minutes before last kid leaves and im following that parent out the door to my car as they leave! I'm out please get in your car and leave as soon as possible.

I hit the other door running cooking supper, household chores, etc....because if I sit down, I am done!

At the end of the day, I go to each son and we have a pow-wow about the day......my favorite part of the day

Sorry your day was tough!

I make my own variation of a Mule. Keep in mind I've eaten keto for a couple of years, so no sugar. My liquor of choice is tequila and the price for sugarless ginger beer was $7 a 6pk on Amazon! No thanks. So I created a Texas Mule with tequila, zevia ginger ale, sparkling water (so it's not quite so sweet) and lime juice. These things are delicious! Hubby likes vodka in his.

We celebrated National Tequila Day just the other day with a couple of mules after work.

That sounds good! I'll have to try it!

Went to dinner/drinks with my 2 cousins last night and we all got 2 more mules lol. One regular one and then one made with raspberry vodka. That was amazing!

ENJOY!!!! Sounds like you earned it.

I still have 2 hours to go until I am off.... I am so looking forward to being off because it is a rare night that I will have the house completely to myself (no guest, no dcks, and my own dd is at an overnight)

I see a glass (or bottle) of white wine in my very near future!!!!

Ooh raspberry vodka sounds interesting. I'm a vodka kinda girl but always resort to oj/vodka or White Russian. Not that I drink all that often. The bottle of vodka I have has been in my cupboard for a few years. Only time I drink is when my dds come back home(Christmas) and by the time I finish 1/2 a drink I either feel blech or I'm ready for bed. Lol Compared to my younger days when I'd hang out with my friends in bars and finish my drink before the server even left our table.

Ladies, I cannot believe. Do you really do all of this without taking your bras off first?! You have to change your routine. Any cocktail will be much much tastier

the day of the incident I described in another part of the forum, I came in and said, "pour me... something. I don't care," - and wolfed down 2 glasses of wine I didn't even like before. I think if it was rubbing alcohol, I'd down that one, too.
and I usually savor one glass until I hit the pillow...

By the time I get upstairs, my dh already has dinner on the table and a glass of whatever goes best with dinner. I wash my hands and sit down. (hard knock life, eh?)

I've been drinking gin lately. My dcm bought me a huge bottle, and sent me a link to the gin & juice video but she changed the lyrics for me.

With so much drama in the DC
it's kinda hard being (me)
But I, somehow, someway
come up with fun and educational S$$$ every single day
May I kick a little something for the kids
and make a few connections for the ABC's
because it's 2 in the afternoon and the kids are still jumpin
cause their mama needs say no
I got kids in the living room fighting over toys
and they ain't leaving till 6 in the evening
so whatcha wanna do?
I got a pocket full of crayons and (assistant) does, too
so turn off the lights and close the doors.
It's closing time babies and I'm out the door.

Rollin down the street in my triple stroller sippin on apple juice.

LLLLLLLLAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIID back.
