Virgin Territory

If you're reading this blog, it's likely been a long time since you've used the term virgin to describe anything about yourself. Sadly, I am a long way from the anticipation of fluttery first kisses, the taste and smell of a new boyfriend, and yes, having a tight "va-jay-jay" (thank you, Shonda Rhimes and Oprah for adding this euphemism to our vernacular!). These firsts are decidedly a thing of my past.

This is why I'm writing my virgin blog... I NEED YOU... my girlfriends, my peers, to keep my life interesting when everything is the same day after day, meal after meal, sexual rebuff after sexual rebuff.

I'm admittedly a failure at making phone calls and scheduling lunch dates but I am exceptional at communicating by email so I figure this might work. Besides, I'm tired of trying to catch up with friends while washing the dishes, while my kids scratch each other's eyes out, and while my husband chimes in with clueless commentary. And nobody needs to hear me lose my shit because my son's nerf ball has, once again, whacked me in the head at 20mph.

So, about the title. I discovered the maternal virtues of drinking wine while heating up yet another frozen dinner. Dare I say it - the vino actually made fish sticks FUN. The trouble was before I knew it I was pouring a second glass and the next thing I remember my son was kicking me out of bed for drooling on his pillow during story time.

So, my New Year's resolution, in addition to maintaining a one glass minimum, is to connect more often with my friends - my beautiful, sleep-deprived, fun-deprived, dream-deprived friends. More than just once a week, or once a month. Possibly even every day! I said possibly.

Girls like us need to stick together: to commiserate, to inform, to inspire, and once in a while, to make us blow snot out of our nose with laughter. So read this with your java in the morning or put the kids to bed and pour a glass. Consider this your girl's night out. No sitter necessary.

P.S. Once I get the ball rolling, I would love to include guest writers so get your fingers ready, if you're so inclined. And should you feel compelled - please share the love with others! Thanks.

HAPPY NEW YEAR - Let's make this a memorable one!

About Me

Remember when you could spend hours talking to your girlfriends over glasses of wine? Now we rarely get enough time to go to the bathroom. I want a place where I can hang with my girls, laugh, cry, bitch, and talk about sex.   Remember when we used to actually kiss and tell? So pour a glass, sign on, and join me for a virtual girl's night out. 
Sex not included.
