Temporary Teetotaler (But My Wagon Tilted)

I don’t have a drinking problem. Sure I like my vodka, club soda and pomegranate cocktail(s) on Thursday nights. My husband usually has one ready for me after my kids get picked up by their father for their sleep-over at his house. I sip it while I get ready to go out on Date Night....
