Day 117: Nbed 2gether Torrontes
I was feeling pretty good about 2012 until today. After 52 years on this planet, it still catches me off-guard how quickly everything can turn upside down. Now my kids are sick, the dog has an ear infection, I had the toughest teaching day in recent history, another student resigned without giving proper notice, I received an unexpected medical bill, I am up 1.2 pounds since last week despite depriving myself of junk food and desserts and exercising regularly, my knees are throbbing from said exercise, and my ex, who was recently fired from his job, is threatening to take me to court to reduce child support.
It's all too much.
So when I went to the grocery store to buy thermometer and some over-the-counter cold remedies for the boys, I picked up a bottle of wine from Argentina for myself. On sale at Kroger for $5/bottle (retail price $9.99), this white wine is a delightful blend of tropical fruit, honey and melon.
I am feeling better already.
