The Blonde Mating call

'I'm so drunk!'

Ok, yeah, it's Mother's day and I'm into my second bottle of wine. No help here. All me.

One of my sons is hunting bugs in the backyard. The other is using his baseball pitching machine as a weapon to try to hunt me down. My husband is grilling steaks, asparagus, mushrooms and garlic on the grill.

I got two miniature rose plants from the boys, and three gift certificates for hour-long massages from my husband.

Life is good.

Back to my backyard drunken stupor.

The sun is starting to set, and I'm sitting out back in my swing with the twinkle lights going. I know I'm going to be eaten up by mosquitos, but I don't care. Scott put the boys to bed, and now I get some me time.

Oh yeah, did I mention I drank two bottles of Riesling? I would be surprised if I could move out of my swing. :)

We have had a great time, and the boys played great outside. We ended up having a cherry cheesecake for desert. Scott had grilled everything I love for Mother's day. We had steak, shrimp, anduiea, asparagus, garlic and french bread. Our bottles of wine were in a bucket full of ice and after desert we had an ice fight - putting ice down each others clothing, throwing it against the bricks, flicking ice-water at each other.

The only 'I can't believe you said that' of the evening was when Scott and I were looking at my garden. I told him I couldn't believe how the delphenium had taken over and he said 'Honestly, I'm surprised you got anything to take off'. Ok, yeah, I had the serious black thumb for years. Everything died. Now, I put my heart into it, and I think things are doing fairly well. I think it was a backhanded compliment about how well the garden and backyard was doing, but he got smacked on the arm for it anyway *laugh*

Ok, time for some drunk-dialing. Need to call my best friend, Tina, and see if I can reach her.
