My. Head. Hurts.

So, I went to the pub last night with several Toronto mommy bloggers (sorry, I’m too tired for linky love right now), full of intentions to have only one or two drinks and head home at a reasonable hour, because I knew McHotty was working today and I would be on solo duty for 24 hours.

Yeah, right. I’ve been out with these bad ladies before, and that hasn’t happened yet.

I would share the gory details if I could remember them.

I do recall the ladies becoming rather raunchy after midnight (Crazymumma’s personal trainer figured largely in the conversation and inspired her to go home and write erotica at 2:00 in the morning, naughty girl).

Cakes was up at 7 this morning and I called my neighbours at 9, desperate for a play-date invitation. They’re so kind and understanding. A made a pitcher of OJ and soda-water and D ran out to Tim’s and got us Breakfast Sandwiches and large coffees. There’s nothing like bacon and egg on a tea biscuit the morning after, is there.

I’ve just put Cakes down for her nap and now I’m going to make soup and go back to bed myself. Please, Cakes—nap soundly and long for mama, ‘kay?

I know how you feel, I called my mother in law this morning so I could just stop my eyes from burning. Your neighbours are too nice!!!!
Oh and the color in our bedroom, is called Athabaska from Benjamin Moore. It's a beautiful blue, my husband thinks it's too cool of a color, he's more into the warm tones. But I think it's a nice one.

Oh, a nap sounds so good - and I didn't stay out as late as you guys. Now I'm stuck doing homework. Blech.

I hit Tim's after I woke up just to get the heck outta dodge and outta cooking. Nothing beats a good greasy breakfast sandwich after a night like that. And nap time? Couldn't come soon enough. And you doing today solo? I'

um...I'm solo with four children. But they are older so I can neglect them.

That was way to much fun, but I REALLY need a place to go dancing next time...

nomotherearth: I dutifully spent 4 hours with old Byron yesterday in anticipation of being useless today.

crazymum: I would LOVE to go dancing. I haven't in so long.

Ooh I love girls night. I have had many mornings where I can barely function, let alone take care of 2 kids. But it is all worth it in the end.

Sorry I missed it too! Seconding Ali on having it on another day than Friday. I work on Saturday mornings and really need to be "on".

Going through mohito withdrawal after our Mexico vacation - a few drinks would have been great. And the good company even greater.

I think I might need to join in on the next mommy blogging pub night, if not just to see everyone than to discuss crazymumma's personal trainer situation. Hawt!

I need to move east.

Screw the Alberta Advantage.

I'll take Tipsy Toronto any day.

I'm so sorry I missed it, but not envying you the hangover. I believe it's scientifically that grease is the only hangover cure.

Next time.

Hope Cakes was extra good for you! You are such an amazing friend to organize this night out.

Coffee is my solution to almost everything. Well that and chocolate!

I'm looking forward to the night out dancing!

Sounds like a fun time was had by all...if new mommies are welcome, keep me posted on the dancing night out. It has been a while since I shook my 'money maker'.

Yeah, with Ali, no Friday night get-togethers. They so don't work for many of us Jewish bloggers! :)

You've got NICE neighbours. I'm so jealous much....
