My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.


It May Sound Crazy...

But I am off on a road trip tomorrow....

Sure, Jef doesn't have a job, and we're living on saved money, but we need some adventure. We have had one spontaneous trip in our whole 4-something years of marriage (and 6-something years of togetherness).

We had gone outlet mall shopping in Dahlonega a few years ago and decided (after a U-Turn) to head to Cherokee, NC, and Gatlinburg, TN, for a long weekend. After a "yeah-no-yeah-no-HELL YEAH!" conversation we drove to Tennessee and spent a long weekend in Gatlinburg... then went to gamble on the Cherokee reservation in Cherokee, NC on the way home.

We bonded, we built a fire (and ran the A/C at the same time) and we sat on the balcony of the cheap hotel, drunk as skunks, watching the world go by as we truly, madly, deeply fell further into love! And, not to brag, we (ok, I) won $250+ on the slot machines in Cherokee- Hehe!

So, back to now: We're going to St. Augustine, Florida in the morning!!!

I made the comment that I would LUV a picture of the light house there for my collection of photos (and that Jef's sis Deby would LUV LUV a pic for her growing collection of "Lisht Hooses" (don't ask)...

And all of this turned into a ROAD TRIP!!!

How many times in YOUR life have you packed up and left out for pure fun and adventure? For emotional fufilment? For the pure hell of it? And how many times have you done all three of the previous for the pure enjoyment of it all? Well guess what... That's what we're doing tomorrow!!

The 33% "logical" side of me has been arguing with the 66.99% "lets be a gypsy, girlfriend" side of me (leaving the .01% of "dude, where's my car?" side to keep wondering "where it be, mon?") to do something so "stupid" or "energizing" (purely dependent on what side you vote for) . So... Needless to say (in a 3 to 1 vote) the spontaneous side won and we're off!

At least for tonite.

I admit, Jef asked me about this trip when I'd had a glass of wine in me. And knowing me the way I do, a glass of wine could be an A-OK tonite, and a WTF are you talking about tomorrow. Sure, I'm sitting here in my reindeer panties from VS and a long shirt (ooh, too graphic?), but tomorrow will the cloud of sobriety fog me over, and I may be able to differentiate the light from the darkness? I guess there's only one way to know!....

I say go for it! Those are the best trips. We used to take those when the kids were young and would sleep through anything. We had a general direction but no destination in mind and would be off. Find some little place to spend the night when we got there and those were the best memories. I always tried to buy a postcard of where we went, Then I had a nice souvenier to put in my "road trip" book. My kids have fond memories of it too. If Ava does well, maybe you can do it more often. Have a great time, can't wait to hear all about it!
