We interupt the wine drinking to bring you a 2ww

Goodbye, my lovely friend. You got me and D.G. through the worst parts of Christmas 2010. (Although D.G. can still lean on you, so not fair.) Last Christmas, I wished for just a taste of you, but it wasn't allowed because I was growing a new life. Who would have guessed that I could have drank a dozen "casks" (that's what they call wine in a box these days) and it wouldn't have really made things turn out any worse than they did. I have to let you go now, and as much I hope we will be apart for at least 10 months, it's probably going to just be for the next 13 days. Wait for me, I still need you even if Christmas is over. It's only been 2 days since I drank a glass of wine and I've already developed a twitch in my left eyelid. It's driving me crazy and I know another glass of wine would totally cure that twitch, but I will tough it out without you. Just promise you will be waiting for me in 2 weeks when everything falls apart again. And if you can't be there, please send your friends, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

The one time I got drunk on wine, it ended very badly. It's not really my thing. Bitter and yucky. But tequila tastes like Chocolate to me. Which is a real problem. :) I am near the end of the 2WW and it pains me to remember the time when I thought for some reason it was some variation for World War 2. HA!

Aw Missy! You've just made me fall off my chair laughing. It pains me to remember when I had no clue what 2WW stood for either. I didn't even have a theory like yours!

Cara I hope that you and Mr. Shiraz and his friends will have to part company for quite some time. I truly do, hoping for you and fingers crossed xo

when we were on our 2WW for this pregnancy i bought a special bottle to make myself feel better since i was feeling so negative about the prospect of getting pregnant right away. thankfully that bottle is still in the wine rack, waiting for this baby to be born. i hope the same happens to you. go ahead - buy a whole case if you want to!

LOL... I hope that there are no more casks in your future for the next 10 months too... Hugz.

I hope that giving up the wine is worth it! The 2ww are terrible.

I love wine! I hope the 2ww is kind to you and that it ends up being at least 10 months from wine like you hope <3

this is a really great post, and missy's comment about the 2ww being a variation of ww2 made me laugh out loud.

thanks ladies.
