Beware of Sealing Wax

I have tea stained hands and a hole in my leg from creating Big Kid's invitations, and I'm not even done with the ones that need to be mailed.

Sealing wax burns like a bitch, just in case you were wondering. It still hurts.

I'm too worn out to go check, but remember last year how I had the ginormous circus birthday bash? Didn't I tell you all to stop me if I start getting all crazy like that again?

Well, next year...NO PARTIES. I mean it. We're going to Disney World, or something.

I love doing it but every year I end up with bodily injury and excessive last minute stuff to do. This year I blame you, for not stopping me or at least warning/reminding me.

It will be a kick ass party though.

Also, you know how I can never get the cork out of a bottle of wine? The bottle in the fridge was already open, but Mr. Ashley had pushed the cork in there really tight.

I tried pulling, tugging, walking into the room to see if Mr. Ashley would wake up, the traditional corkscrew method...and finally decided to use the corkscrew to hack the cork into a million pieces, pushing it through and into the wine, which I'm enjoying a glass of.

Hey, it worked.

WOW! That's a LOT of work for a glass of wine. You must have really needed it. LOL.

At least you got to enjoy the wine. Guess you had to finish off the bottle since the cork was hacked to bits.

Ouch. That's gotta hurt.

Is this, by chance, a pirate party? I can't wait to hear all about it! I love parties as much as you do, and I get in over my head every single time. I make everybody miserable the whole week or so beforehand and sleep for two days afterwards... parties are fun, but so, so tiring!!

I've had to use the same guerilla wine opening tactics as you on a couple of occasions. Sometimes I think it's part of the fun... it makes me feel all survivalist!!

I have the same issue with wine. My husband puts the cork back in so damn tight, I need a steroid shot before opening it again!

Next time you're at Target or other big store, look for a pack of wine bottle stoppers. Use them instead of the original cork. MUCH easier.

Happy drinking!

You corked your own wine? Dude, that's messed up.

Whatever you do in the name of wine is always forgive. Can't wait to hear about the party and of course you have to do it, look at that darling picture of BK. He's so worth it.
