Oh, What a Giftie from the Housewife!

The box from Pissed Off Housewife came late yesterday afternoon--I waited until everyone was home, and the kids all crowded round to watch me open the box...

And then we all laughed! Housewife sent me two bottles of "Mad Housewife" Wine, and they're wonderful! I love any and all wine--like many a mad housewife, I'm sure. The labels are absolutely classic,and the only thing that would make them better would be if they actually said "Pissed Off Housewife!"

My son looked at the label and said in a worried voice "that's not actually her, is it?" (I'm sure the thought of that woman authoring Titty Talk Tuesdays was almost too much for him to bear).

Housewife, thank you so much! You and Mrs. D. did great. I just may open one tonight--it's been quite a day around here.

Today I told my neighbor who came down to help de-horn the baby goats--the only thing that would make it better is if Pissed Off Housewife showed up to drink it with me! (You're famous around here, you know, Housewife--I've told everyone in town about you!)

Here's what it says on the back of the bottle--such poetry!

Somewhere near the cool shadows of the laundry room.
Past the litter box and between the plastic yard toys.
This is your time.
Time to enjoy a moment to yourself.
A moment without the madness.
The dishes can wait.

Dinner be damned.

do I need to add an 'amen'?

A toast to you and your beautiful work on my blog headers.

I was so worried that you might be a non-drinker.

I'm cracking open my bottle tonight. I'll silently toast you and wonder (but not terribly deeply) how one de-horns a baby goat.
