I'm way too old for this!!

Hubby and I went out last night to celebrate my birthday. Our first stop was at one of my friend's dessert places to make sure I had some food in my system. I had a glass of wine there, and stuffed mushrooms which are to die for. Then we went over to the bar where hubby works on the weekends. Everyone knows him.. so the bartender was giving me free drinks and shots all night. Hubby only drank a couple redbulls, they were also free. We tipped the bartender $20, but never paid a dime for a drink. I really didn't think I'd had too much to drink, but apparently I did... Today I feel like death! I spent most of the morning being sick.. I tried so many things to try to settle my stomach and get some fluids in my system, but I couldn't keep anything down. I took a short nap this afternoon and feel a little better now, still weak and still haven't eaten but at least I am keeping some fluids down.. I guess my body just had to remind me I'm not 20 anymore! I think it will be a good long while before I party like that again! When was the last time you had a hangover?

Occasionally I wake with a bit of a headache but I don't like noticing that I'm slurring words or whatever so I usually ease off before that point. At least you really celebrated your birthday! And a belated Happy Birthday too!

Thanks! I blame it on the bartender! I don't drink often.. but usually I can hold my liquor. I think whatever she mixed for me (I told her to surprise me) was just too strong.. then a couple shots and another drink later and I was a goner! I wasn't slurring words, but standing up straight wasn't an easy task, and I was usually holding onto hubby for support.

@AmbiePam Hmm.. I guess.. 21 wasn't bad for me. I started dating my husband right around my birthday.. officially it was a week later but you know.. we moved in together that year. That was also the year of 9/11 though. We were moving in to our first place the day that happened.
