Red red whine....

So yesterday wasn't the greatest day on the planet, but I survived. And in celebration, I'm taking the kids out of school today. We're going to Disneyland! Yep, sippy cups with organic milk for them, sippy cups with red wine for my best friend and me. Ooooh, the magic of the season.

Hey, if you need some good writing and some dance-a-licious tunes, I present to you, the fabulous: Valerie

And now, I'm off to wear mouse ears and act silly. "And what makes this different from any other day?" Oh, just shut up.

And Mom, thanks for everything. Much much better today.

I just love Disneyland at Christmas! We have passes and we've been 3 times since Thanksgiving already. LOL.

Our celebrations look really similar, except I would leave the kids in school and do a spa day with a friend and my red wine. :)

Sorry that you had a rough day. Email me if you need anything. Email me even if you don't. xxxooogretchen

I'm jealous that you can go to Disneyland whenever. Good for you!!!

I am without spawn, so I have a pretty cruisey ride into Christmas.
But I see the mentalness my sister goes through with her 3 kids around this time of year - the presents for the teachers, the end of year break-ups, the angel's wings, the donkey's ears, the end of year concert, speech nights, speech mornings, the go-cart day, it goes on and on and on........
No wonder when Christmas Day comes, all she just wants to do is inflate the blow-up pool and sit in it in the backyard.

Red wine for whines that make you see red - makes sense to me!

Valerie said...

wow. i've never been called fabulous before. niiiiice.

i may print this out and show it to all schmucks @ work that think i'm...well, less than fabulous.

man!! it never occured to me to bring my own sippy cup to Disneyland. what HAVE i been missing? and i thought the best way to spend a day there was to sit at the winery @ California Adventure while the niece & nephew enjoyed the parade passing by below. i like your idea WAY better.
