Put the Rum in the Eggnog


It’s been a looonnnngggg day! I had to ask my friend Tom to take me on base because I couldn’t find my military ID (for almost a week now) and desperately needed to go grocery shopping. Xander woke up early and began talking and is STILL talking (why don’t little ones come with ‘mute’ buttons?) and I’ve had a splitting headache for most of the day. It’s finally going away though – of course I’ve poured myself some eggnog and rum so maybe that’s why the headache is going away.

It’s the holidays right?

So, thanks to Tom (for getting my ID for me) and Mom (for helping me pay for groceries that I obviously couldn’t afford) I have a nicely stocked fridge and pantry and saved almost $10 at the Commissary. There is chili con carne cooking on the stove, “Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas” playing on the television and eggnog in my tummy.

My mood is beginning to improve.


  1. I think it was Emmet who made you feel better not the Nog 😉
