The Red Fruity Drink that Lead to My First...

It has been too long since I last really posted!  Have been so busy, and usually get posts done at night but have been too tired to stay up.  Nothing too eventful has happened lately.


Although!  Totally unrelated to my usual posts, in non parenting news; I experienced my first hangover.  I don't get out much being a full-time mom.  But this time the party came to me.  Our neighbor was having a party for their two-year old boy, and invited us.  You might already be wondering how I ended up having a hangover at a toddlers birthday?!  Well for starters the party started at around eight, and was full of drinks and music.  What can I say?  Every culture does it differently.  And I don't judge! :)  Never met our neighbors before until that night, and they were very nice people.  Have shared the elevator plenty of times, and might've had "weather talk" but nothing more.

It was a last-minute invite while my husband was on the elevator with them, probably when they were talking about the weather..you know how those conversations go.  At first we were thinking of not walking over five steps to their apartment, but then they came knocking on our door.  They have parties very often, and the music is loud enough to fill up half of our apartment, so it was interesting to see the other side of the wall.  My sister in-law was over with her son, and we had already had some wine with dinner already.  When we entered next door, we were handed drinks right away, and they didn't take "no" for an answer.  So we thought, why not, and drank it!  It was a fruity red drink, that was secretly realllllly strong.

Lucky for me, my sister in-law stayed next door with the kids after we put them to sleep.  So I danced, I drank another one of those fruity drinks!  Before I knew it, I was feeling so drunk!  I don't drink, I mean it is safe to say I don't.  I don't even go out, and it is hard to remember the last time I really went out.  Again, lucky for me, home was five steps away.  So I nicely walked away from the party once I felt a little waddle in my step, and blur in my vision.  Made sure all was well, went to bed as it was very late at the time.

Woke up in the morning feeling wonderful!  Ha..so I thought.  Lied in bed talking to my husband for about five minutes, talking about how great I felt, until I got up and my world spun!  I felt worse than the night before.  I felt dizzy, my head hurt SO bad, felt a heart burn feeling coming over me, felt like I could taste the alcohol, I was so thirsty, I mean "what was that red drink!?" I said frantically with a frown on my face.  So that was the day, the day I experienced my first ever hang over!

Happy to report my day went by fine despite what I apparently put my body through, and after I had some hot soup as I was directed to have, I felt better.  My little boy didn't know a thing, and I still made him yummy pancakes that morning with a side of hemp milk!  That was definitely a moment I wont forget, dealing with a hangover while making sure I'm mommy first, because the headache can wait.

One thing to be learned from this post is; don't drink the foreign fruity red drink, not after you have had wine, and definitely don't agree to a second. 

When did you experience your first hangover?  Do you have any ways of "curing" the hangover?
