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.


27 + One For The Road

Welcome to a new year and another birthday for yours truly. I'm the big 2-8! Ok, so there's nothing big about 28, but I'm cool with that. Time just seems to be zipping by- and I feel soooo out of the loop sometimes.

Well, big J is crusin along at his new job. He hates it... but hey, it'll pay the bills (we hope). And on the bright side (smell the sarcasm?) I got the brainy idea to get a job. At a conveniant store. What the hell am i thinking? I just filled out an application today, so we'll see. At least it's part-time. I know they will hire anyone who can pass a background check. Considering how many years I did mortgage, that's not a prob (they check them yearly or more). Good grief, I never even got written up in school (like- ever!). I am such a goodie two shoes. Or, maybe I just dont get caught.

Well, I hope berrymom and Ethan Earl are resting well, bonding, and generally falling in love with each other! It's been a long road for her with the GD, etc.-- but I'm sure she feels it's worth it all now!

I got some laundry done today! I know, major accomplishment there right?! I made the effort and I feel better about it- at least something felt complete. Also, I took the gift card mom gave me and bought the chest of drawers at wally-world I have been needing. My closet is OUT of room. Even if it just held my stuff, it'd be a tight fit. Add big J's crap (I mean nice stuff) and it's packed like 10 lbs of dookie in a 5 lb bag! This will definately help me out!

I even helped my dad out today (mom watched Ava) at his booth at the flea market. He sells ice cream there, and he unplugged the coolers to thaw them. We used the wet-vac and cleaned them good, then mopped the floor (we made a mess). We were done in less than an hour, and it felt great to get out and do a little hard work.

I keep wondering why I'm so pooped out today... then I remember-- after all that I came home, made a pot of chili from scratch and let it simmer, took Faith to tutoring, got gas for the car, bought a S'mores Cappuccino, got Faith from the tutor, then did homework with Faith for an hour! I've nursed Ava twice during all this, mind you. I caught up on emails, couldnt get my yahoo messenger to work (still) so I ran to moms (literally, across the yard I jogged with Ava and Faith in tow) then, Jef got home and we ate supper, and Ava nursed again. Now, after Jef asked if I had blogged lately (in all my spare time-- wink!) so I jumped back on the computer and here I am. Whew- I think I will take a nice warm shower and head to bed early tonite! I deserve it~

Blinkie of the day (all for Sassy T!!):
