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.

I've not fallen off the end of the earth...

Not yet anyways! I've been keeping busy around here with a spoiled rotten cutie (that's Jef, not Ava- hehe!). Christmas time is coming... and I'm trying to make it's appearance as slow as possible.

I'm just not in the holiday spirit. I can't think of a single thing I want or need, and neither can Jef. He's still unemployed so we're not having a big shebang (we weren't going to have a big x-mas anyway). It just doesn't feel like it should be this time of year. Where has the time gone?

I did manage to put the tree up- our "Charlie Brown" tree. I've had this poor thing for 10 years, and although it's pretty, it's kinda showing its age. But then again, so am I!

Well, in Faith's world... She's improving already in her reading and comprehension! The teacher said she'd caught up about a year's worth of school time, and was now only 6 months behind. By the end of the year she should be at (or above) grade level.

Jef keeps having job offers roll in, but he isn't ready to commit yet. He so doesn't want to be a car guy any more. I can't blame him. I guess that will just have to pan out in time.

Ava is the boobie-princess. We occassionally give her a few ounces of formula for times when I have't pumped a bottle or if we go out for a few drinks. I suppose I should say we "try" to give her formula... she has been spitting it out lately. Only the good stuff for Miss Ava! And the little devil has learned to smile as she is eating now. That will just totally steal your heart and make you laugh! She was comfort nursing this afternoon, just eating a little, playing, holding my fingers... and she looked up at me, laughed and grinned with a mouth full of boob, and then resumed her meal. What a girl!

Jef's daughter, Paige, is coming buy tonite before her trip to Argentina. She went to school down there for a few years, found her a boyfriend, and is heading off to that side of the world for her holidays. Jef doesn't like Niko her boyfriend. Actually, neither do I! He's cocky, needy, and a bit of a liar. But Paige is smitten, so asi es la vida (such is life).

Guess that about catches things up for now.... Thanks for all those of ya who checked in on me!
