I stopped by Debbie's blog this morning, and saw her funny post on having sick kids and being trapped in the house, and what a girl needs to keep from going totally nuts. It made me think of this special vintage, just for moms with cabin fever . . .It's Mad Housewife wine, which I am saving for just the right occasion, like, say, Mr. Jones' next business trip, the night before a school project is due, or possibly when my kiddos get the stomach flu. Once, my kids had the stomach flu for an entire week each ~ that is 7 whole days of puking, folks, PER KID. And do they all have it the SAME 7 days? Of course not! Then, when everyone was better for about 2 weeks, they got it AGAIN! I could have used a little MH that month.
And here's what I call a "keeping it real" photo. This is what is behind my staged photo: All the junk that was on the table, which I dumped behind the table for the photo shoot, and the game someone left out on the love seat. I wouldn't want you guys to think I'm neat and tidy or anything.
And here's a photo of the sweet bouquet of flowers my in-laws sent me for my birthday 2 days ago. It is so festive and cheery, and I love the vase. I know I will be able to use it for all kinds of things. Thanks Jack and Betty!
Here's a picture of me and Betty on a visit with her a year or two ago. I don't think there is a more organized person on the face of the earth. I wish I had just an ounce of that.

oh how i could too use some Mad Housewife wine... that is the best!

and oh my... HAPPY belated BIRTHDAY!!! Yeah! that bouquet is so pretty!

Debbie said...

First...Happy Belated Birthday! Secondly, you made me laugh out loud with the confession behind your staged photo. Let me just say, you are in good company.
Now I was thinking about that MH wine. Do you think it is for a husband made my a Mad Housewife and will cause stomach convulsions when she is, well, a mad housewife? Or is it sweet nectar for Mamas? I'll be interested to hear what it tastes like! Enjoy your birthday WEEK...because that is what all mamas deserve...a birthday week!

Happy Belated birthday! I am all about the wine..especially when they pass around the current sickness of the week.. I think we had a record 7 healthy days in January, and that is a good number.I hope you had a nice b-day.

I've seen Mad Housewife in the stores, and it has always made me chuckle. Pick a night and enjoy it! :)
