Red wine in chili... shar

Well, I find that throwing a little red wine in anything with tomatoes in it kind of takes some of the acid out... that and a little sugar. I usually do it with spaghetti sauce, but seeing as it was a bad day, and I decided to have a glass of red wine while putting together this particular batch of chili, it seemed like a good idea to add a little wine to the mix. That way it justified more my drinking in broad daylight... Does that make sense?

I have been doing better, however, in the alcoholism department. I am not sneaking home during the day for a glass of wine to calm the nerves. I seem able to last an entire day now without that crutch. I just drink at night now.... Not too much, though, because it would be too hard to get up in the morning. It IS a 7-day-a-week job in the summer and I can't afford hangovers or lack of sleep this time of year, nor can I afford bad eating habits. Too hard to function.

It was hazy, hot and humid the last few days, in the 80s and low 90s. We have had a very cold spring. It figures that we would get instant summer. It always happens this way. Cold, damp, hail, rain, frost... then BAM!! sweltering heat.

OK. I'll stop whining.... or wine-ing.

That sucks about the foreclosure threat. I hope great hopes and thoughtful thoughts that it won't come to that.
