  • Welp. I helped myself to a couple of beam and Cokes last night.

    Husband called late afternoon to give me the joyful news the the A/C crapped out, and it was 94 degrees in the house. And, could I please stop at the store and get him some Coke?

    I made the executive decision to buy the Beam to go along with it. But, I kept the drinks relatively weak and felt just fine this morning.

    I actually felt guiltier about drinking the Coke than I did the booze. Tonight it's B-day maragritas! Woohoo!

    • Yesterday, I way way overate at lunch. So I had no dinner. I went out after work and came home at 7. Normally if I was skipping dinner, I would have found that a perfect reason to have wine instead. Had no wine. Asked myself, are you actually hungry? Answer: no. Okay then, nothing needs to be consumed.

      • I admit I'm having a little conundrum. Am going to be off work tomorrow unexpectedly having some junk installed at my house. So, early weekend. Been doing really well so far. Kinda want to have wine tonight...
        Breathe. Move forward.

        I just eat what I want...

        • Totally almost caved yesterday.

          11yo woke up with a screaming ear ache and was crying pretty much
          hysterically about it (this child does not cry AND has a high threshold
          for pain), so I knew it was serious.

          Called the pediatrician and what time could they get me in? 7:30 that night.

          WHAT?

          My child is in PAIN here people, keep the snot nosed kids in the waiting room,
          I'll throw you my 20 dollar co-pay so you can write me a scrip. Seriously. I was
          LIVID.

          Took him to urgent care, which was empty, but still took an hour, then to the grocery
          store to have the scrip filled, which took forever too, then I was behind about 1400
          elderly people paying for THEIR prescriptions that they were either paying in pennies
          or writing a check for...

          2:30 we finally get home, I find myself a NEW pediatrician (upon recommendation from
          my sister) write a scathing review about my current one (they recently teamed up with
          another network, so now they have MORE patients. Stupid!) and then sat down to exhale
          for a second, but cranky as all get out.

          Husband gets home at 5 and he knows I'm not all rainbows and unicorns, actually asks if I
          want some wine and I say BOY HOWDY I DO, but, it's Thursday, Friday is supposed to be
          freaking hotter than hell and I really don't want to feel nasty with two kids to entertain all
          day.

          He says "well, you don't have to go anywhere or anything". Please. Anyone know how fun it is
          to see four eyes staring at you all day while you feel like shit and they're bored? NO WAY, and
          not fair to them.

          Long story longer, I was THIS CLOSE. THIS CLOSE!

          So I did what any other right minded person would do: Ate about 10 or 15 snickers minis, and all
          was right with the world. Ahhhhhhhhh.

          Close shave right there. Phew! I'm so glad I didn't give in. It was majorly hard.

          No clue what's going on with our weather.... It's been REALLY humid. Sorry, but California
          just ain't humid.

          Diane: Has it been humid in Santa Barbara too?

          Yesterday here in San Jose, I swear it was like Hawaii - but the nearest palm tree is two blocks
          over....... and the ocean water is still 50 below...

          Keep up the good work people!

            • I admit I caved to my early weekend and had some wine... Enjoyed it.

              It's flipping HOT here too. Wooowee! Come on monsoon!

                well I definitely think its a good sign that you at least had a second thought and time to really think about it.

                welcome to Friday folks!

                  I guess I just figured every weekend is not gonna be a long weekend and I did fine otherwise so no biggie. Same as the eating and lifestyle in general. Not gonna sweat it too much if I'm not perfect every minute but always trying to make progress.
                  Breathe. Move forward.

                      • Okay, I'm in...drinking way too much almost every night. I like the idea of still having a drink on the weekends (and for me this will be Fri and Sat nites) Really glad you started this thread as this is something that I've been thinking about for quite some time.

                        I also like the timing...starting something on the 1st of the month...so here goes. I'll keep in touch and let you know how it goes.

                        Already talked to DH and asked him please do not offer to pour me a glass of wine. He has better control that I do.

                        • I actually didn't succumb last night.

                          I've been gutting my house for about two weeks.

                          Going room by room, getting rid of 23 years of clutter and "oh I might need that some day"
                          stupid shit.

                          I've shredded 8 banker's boxes of cancelled checks and other lame stuff starting from about 1989,
                          and have filled and disposed of 16, twenty gallon bags of recycleables. Not to mention
                          filling our side yard with BIG stuff that I actually need a dumpster for.

                          The reason I'm typing this all out, for the reason I didn't drink last night, is because my husband
                          got home from work at 3:30, sat on his ass and did NOTHING while I cleaned the kitchen.

                          The kitchen hasn't been tackled yet as one of my jobs and is FREE TO ANYONE to HELP clean it,
                          so that kind of pissed me off. Mostly because it's perpetually dirty and my husband is usually a
                          really good helper.

                          So, all the BACK BREAKING WORK I've been doing, all day every day for 2 weeks straight and him
                          coming home and sitting on his ass was irritating enough to NOT drink with him because of course
                          he totally WANTED me to.

                          Hmph. TAKE THAT.

                          Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

                          Yeah, yeah, I know I only would have been hurting myself if I drank, but y'all get it.

                          I've got a buncha N/A beer lined up for tonight! Hotter than F*ck today in San Jose,
                          they better chill to perfection come 5pm.

                          • It's always feels good getting rid of clutter. I always feel like a giant weight has lifted off me when I do that stuff. Good on you!

                                Heh sounds like mine everyday, unless I start vacuuming and then he shows up and takes over. I just wish he'd just do it withou a "prompt."
