This is me this morning. We went to a wedding last night. You'd think I was wasted, but the truth is I had 2 weak cranberry and vodkas... weak on the vodka not cranberry. I was done with them before dinner and from then on had only coffee and water. The buzz was gone within the hour. But I developed a pounding headache and had to have 2 coffees (I didn't have to put caramel syrup, whipped cream and choc shavings on them but I did) but no relief. I was completely sober well before dancing. And yet I pretty much want to die right now. I'll admit I am a total light weight, and because I've been nursing or pregnant for the last 5.5 years (literally) I haven't exactly been working on building up my tolerance, but still! Usually when I'm hungover it is because I went to bed drunk, not had two light drinks proceeded through an entire evening of sobriety and drank water and still feel like shit. What gives? It must be related to what a bad ass I am ;)
On the positive side I had a great time and didn't completely blow my diet either. Well I did blow it.. but it could have been a lot worse... and it would have been had the drinks been any stronger! This was one of those weddings where no one dances but just sits at their tables awkwardly watching... well no one dances but my family. So for the first 30 min of dancing it was literally just my immediate family. For one song it was just my mom and I... there comes a moment when you realize no one else is getting up and everyone is watching you and you kind of want to kill yourself and your knees start to buckle, but you keep going hoping and praying that this is not a remixed long version of the song, since you are committed now and can't stop until it is over. My mom suggested that we might wake up and find ourselves on YouTube. But we, the extended Furiouses, got that party started... my mom even lit our table on fire much to our amusement. We had a great time and I am often reminded of how lucky I am to have such a fun family. Thanks for a good night.. you know who you are. And I big thanks to Mr. Furious who bore full parental responsibility through the wedding and will quite possibly need to today as well!
