1 + 3 + 4 = Glutony, or "Gimme a G!"
I've been famished lately. I don't know what to attribute this to...I have teenage and pre-teen boys in the house who routinely make their way through the fridge and pantry, but lately I've been right there with 'em. Could be the sheer amount of hours I've been working lately. In the office, at home, early mornings, late nights, and still trying to pursue the NaNoWriMo project (oh please, I'm rolling my eyes as I write this.) Although, my oldest is having surgery next week, so I'm hoping I'll have ample "hurry up and wait" time to write a few thousand words.
But I digress, I was speaking of Glutony. It all started last Saturday night. One bar + three girls + (who knows how many) four-berry martinis = a LOT of laughs, a few turned heads and funny looks, a few conversations with other bar flies, and some fantastic food. And lots of it. I think this is what I needed to de-stress my mind and re-energize my soul after a week's worth of work, work, work.
Thanks, girls, for the friendship, the laughs, and the fun (not to mention the s&p shakers and that mini-gourd)! See, girls' night really is good for your health! And it helped to make up for the fact that I missed my Wednesday night WWWP group.
Speaking of girls' night out...an old high school classmate of mine recently posted on facebook about desperately needing one of these nights. Jo - I hope you lose the mom-guilt (or catholic guilt...the combo is fierce, I know!) and plan that trip back to the Lou just for You (hey, I'm a poet...).
So tell me, what helps you de-stress your mind and re-energize your soul?
