Every once in a while Bossy likes to get a handle on her habits, because they’re just that: habits. For the past handful of days, Bossy has skipped her evening wine intake at home. It’s not that Bossy has stopped drinking, but she wants it to remain the nightly treat it’s always been and not a desperate expectation. And an expensive desperate expectation at that!
Bossy tricks herself into thinking she’s having wine by putting water in a wine glass. Yeah, that doesn’t work.

–>I think it was Jesus who mixed water and wine so how about an ice cube in the next real glass? 🙂

Hot water in a mug feels like a hot delicious beverage but with zero calories.
What am I saying — I can’t fake it, either.

I kinda like desperate expectations myself.

Also, a glass of tonic water is not the same as a Gin & Tonic. FYI.

Oh, btw, just buy the boxed wine at Target, it’s super cheap and tasty. I like the Cabernet/Shiraz blend.

Nice little bait and switch there. Tulips on the homepage luring us to click, thinking it’s the next installment of Boobgate, “The Tulips’ Turn to Talk … “

Search for something delicious and non alcoholic- still a treat, not expensive.

I actually like this idea – when I was pregnant, I would get a soda (which in Oz means plain soda water and not pop) and lime in my wine glass when everyone else had a wine. The glass really is half the fun. Okay, not the FUNNEST half, but still.
I like the IDEA of a NYC apartment. Except it need 3 apartments joined together in order for you to swing a cat.

Why waste a day? Splurge. When you work hard reward yourself.

I agree with Bush Babe…the glass is half the fun. We went out for tea that other day and they served us soda in a wine glass. It was an epiphany for me. It’s only a matter of time before I find pyrex wine glasses so I can drink my coffee out of them.
