I don't drink shots. It's not a good plan for me. Margaritas? Fine. A glass of wine now and then? Sure. But shots? No. Haven't had one since about 1998. But when five friends surround me and watch me with a shot in my hand, I go for it. And seriously, I don't think it was just a single one. At least a shot and a half, possibly the equivalent of two. But wait, someone didn't just order one round, but two (should I blame Jen or Amy?? Hmmm...I call foul on both). And margaritas. Not smart for Jenny Scott, I can tell you that for sure.
Because what happens when I do this? I drunk text another friends husband not realizing that it wasn't my own. And what did I drunk text? This is a family blog people. Saint--if I turn about four shades of red the next time I see you, just pretend like you don't notice. I'm so embarassed!!
I tend to not have me time often. Sounds like most mothers, right? I don't go out with friends but every once in a while. Last time was my birthday dinner in January. I have a lot of nights away from my family for work. My mom guilt doesn't let me to be away for things for myself. I don't think it is fair to ask that from my sweet husband. He never complains to have to care for Maggie on his own once a week or more so I can handle night meetings for Heroes for Children. But I can't take advantage of that. When we're in our busy time, it is like this every week. Two nights away is my maximum. So if I do two nights away for work, then I don't take time away for myself. Thus meaning I don't go out. Now, I'm not complaining. I love my job and I love the time I get to be with my family. But boy did I ever need last night! I needed to be with these great girls, re-energize, and relax. So much so that I was feeling it this morning!!
I needed this time with the girls. Needed to be with them and so glad I got my time with them. Love you gals!!
