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.

Post-it Maxi Note Pads

From time to time I do consumer product surveys online and for some surveys they will ship a product to me for testing. I make a little extra dough (about $1-$10 per survey) and I get free stuff to use. I was telling Jef about my latest shipment that arrived for me to try out (Jef always types in all caps because his system at work requires that. I'm too lazy to edit it all, so excuse!):

A: I got a survey box. A box o' pads!
J: COOL, THATS NEET
A: yah, periods- neeeeet-OOO, hahaha
J: OHHH, THOSE KINDA PADS
A: yeah, not for notes
J: HAHA. SORR-EEE.
A: It's cool. You could use them as a note pad I guess.
J: POST ITS
A: they'd play hell on marker ink
J: HAHA, YEAH
A: dissapearing ink. i can see it now: dear stayfree- your notepads are too absorbent. you owe me 3 new sharpies.

I cant mention post its without mentioning my mother. Mom was a school secretary for almost 20 years. At the end of a school year, or when she'd change jobs from school to school, she kinda just helped herself to a box of post it notes and various other office supplies. Now, when I say "box of post its" I dont mean a small shoe box or stapler box. I mean a copy paper box! Long story short, I never buy office supplies. And to think she once scolded me for taking a petal from a silk flower from Roses Dept Store when I was 3 (it was sooo pretty!).

If you are interested in surveys check out MySurvey.com (aka NFO). You earn points and can cash them in with those guys. There's another called Anne Parks or something that sends $4 for completing their surveys.

I'm off shortly to go meet with my h.s. reunion crew. We were supposed to meet yesterday, but the restaurant was closed when we got there (it's a pizza place, and their fryer was broken. Fried pizza?! WTH!!??). So, take two is today... if I dont go all anti-social and fake an illness. Rest assured, I'll keep you posted!

That's funny about the maxi note pads. I got a sample from Always, and they sent several post-it notes that say "Have a happy period" I put them on DH's desk, but he refuses to use them! haha Enjoy planning your reunion!

That is so funny. You have such a great sense of humor. You really never fail to make me smile. If Im having a rough day, I just have to turn to your blog for a laugh!
Anyways, I really came to your blog to let you know that you inspire me. I know other girls have m/c and went on to be successful, but for some reason your story sticks out to me the most. I guess it's because I can relate to you the most. You give me hope that I will get a sticky baby very soon.
Thank you!

Too funny on the maxi pads... did you see that movie, Romi and Michelle's high school reunion? It kind of goes hand in hand with your post. High School reunion's and post it notes!

hehe...I thought of the same thing as Meg did...Romy and Michelle. "I invented post-its" :)

And about the broken fryer...you have to wonder if fried pizza wouldn't be extra delicious...like fried twinkies or snickers bars. Frying improves everything...why the heck not? LOL
