Domesticated or Sober?


  • When your Friday night consists of a nap at 8pm. Then, a walk to 7-11 for some popcorn and candy for your movie night with your boo, to which you promptly fall asleep on the couch about 3/4 of the way in.......all before midnight?

  • When you wake up before 10am Saturday morning, hangover-free, and excitedly walk to the new grand opening of the Grocery Outlet {hello, low prices!} to get ingredients for Mancakes. Which, P.S. The Dizzle could not stop ranting and raving. And people, I am not a cook. So this was pretty amazing that I successfully did this.

  • When Saturday night, you're the only 2 sober ones at the bar, drinking water, and analyzing the different levels of drunkards around you...and in my case, being slightly jealous? But look how much FUN V Dizzle is having. So.Much.FUUUUN.

  • When your "Sunday Funday" consists of 26 loads of laundry, 2 loads of dishes, 47 episodes of The Office, a little rooftop lounging, and a large pizza to share?

I'm sure if we had incorporated alcohol over the weekend, some of these activities would not have happened. Or if they did, the memory of them would be blurry.
But, you know what? 
Sober or domesticated - - I enjoyed it all.
Even if only water was being had, at least my Boo was right there with me.
Am I right, or am I right?

  1. Hmmm - this sounds shockingly similar to my life. (Although with the addition of a beer or a glad of wine here and there.)

  8. oooh mancakes, i must check this out!

    way to stick to your promise, alcohol-free weekends are hard! although the older i get the worse my hangovers get.. so sometimes a sober weekend is much more fun (and definitely more productive!)

  14. Honestly, this sounds like my life on the reg. I don't drink a ton, and generally I'm asleep by 11 on Friday nights.

    I'm wild. I know.

  15. i think this is a great idea. to not only do this with your significant other so you have someone to enjoy/suffer with, but you kind of get a sense of things that you like outside of alcohol and do things that you might not have done if alcohol was involved. i'm going to have to add this to my list or things to do.

  27. sometimes the most amusing nights are the ones where you are sober and can watch everyone else making a fool of themselves!

  28. I gotta try those Mancakes, anything involving bacon my husband is all over.

    I have to tell you, you kinda inspired me - we're going 19 days without booze. This of course is in preparation for Vegas, where we will make up for all 19 days in the course of 48 hours, but at least I won't feel bloated when I get there :)

  29. thats when you have to venture out into the world of virgin drinks! i don't think i could resist something with a pretty color - but it wouldn't have to have alcohol in it :)

  30. I WISH I had been the sober one at the bar Saturday. Sunday wasn't so fun for me...might have to follow suit with you on the no drinking policy.
