It's Christmas Eve, I have food to prepare, presents to wrap, house to clean, washing everywhere, pack the car and drive an hour to my parents later this afternoon. I have no idea how I can do it......why?
Because I have the most stupendous HANGOVER ever. OMG I am not talking a take a nurofen and have a can of coke type hangover. It is a drinking copious amounts in 42 degree heat for 9hrs type hangover. I cannot even stomach a piece of vegemite on toast. The kids were up at 630am and all I can do is lie on the couch and make sure they dont have a major accident and chuck some food their way every now and then.
It is going to be such a long day.
No wonder I havent done this since pre-kids. The aftermath is terrible!

Empathy OP, that was me two days ago. Had promised to take the kids to the zoo and couldn't let them down.
Maybe chuck the kids under the sprinkler?

You and my DH would be the best of friends right now. Somehow he got absolutely wasted yesterday thankfully he had the brains to sleep on the couch.

Oh dear....that was me yesterday.....I had a night of vodka with my neighbour.......he was pouring.......and the later it got the bigger they were..........
MUCH better today though!!!!!!
Have a shower and some chips! That made me feel slightly less deathly.

I have the red wine hangover this morning.
And I have to work until 1pm. Been here since 8. 2 hours down, 3 to go.

How do I get through going to the shops today and NOT killing anyone?
It will be like the world ended other day
Stupid me for not being ready dammit

I've done it maybe once or twice since DD and I think I've finally learned.... it's not bloody worth it
But I'm sure there'll be an exception and I'll find myself on the verge of death and only have myself to blame with DF finger pointing and laughing
Hope it's not long before you feel human again!

Definitely do not attempt the housework or washing. They can wait.
Wrap the presents. Have a lie down.
Throw the ingredients for whatever you have to prepare into an esky with an ice brick. Have a lie down.
Pack the car. Have a lie down.
Get in the car and sleep for an hour while DH drives to your parents house.
Hand esky to parents, apologise. Lie down.
By sunset you will feel better, it always seems to be the way.

Oh Ehill you are so funny, I feel for you
Definitely leave the housework and washing, no one cares about that. Are any of the kids old enough not to believe in santa - get them to wrap the presents
I have no suggestions,the only thing I can offer is sympathy, have been there so many times myself

I made that mistake on Saturday. My only consolation was that at least I'd remembered my limits before the Christmas season and can be more careful from her on in. That and I was up all night anyway with cranky baby and so got plenty of opportunity to drink water and ease the pain of the next day.

Oh no, sucks to be you!
Will you be okay to drive? You could still be over the limit.
Do you have any anti-nausea tablets hanging around?
I suggest a long shower, while sitting in the bottom of it, not standing. Force yourself to eat and drink lots of water, but not too quickly.
Sleep would help, but probably impossible. Good luck! Just imagine how much better you'll feel tomorrow!

Thanks everyone for your sympathy and understanding. I dont have to leave until 3 or 4pm and we finished up yesterday around 8pm so I will be fine to drive.
I love the PP saying 'and then lie down' which is exactly what I have had to. I am so sick that any effort requires a 5 minute lie down to quell the nausea.
Anyway DS has gone down for his nap, DD is watching sesame street so I may sneak away for a little kip now. Presents are wrapped, I could do that while sitting down.
It could be worse......My DH is currently at the main Mall in the CBD christmas shopping with his ginormous hangover
