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.


Another Friday Mish-Mash

I love Friday Mish-Mash! It's gonna be a permanent theme for me now!

After reading K's blog I got to thinking... How do you begin to explain the feeling of the end result to someone while they are TTC and having a rough time? If someone had told me, "It's worth every ounce of pain, every moment of suffering, and every dime that it costs, and you will look back and agree that if it'd been 10 times worse it'd still be a bargain for what you get!" I would have called that person a crazy bitch. I'm not really making a specific point here, just kinda jabbering through it all in my mind. It's like having a long running inside joke with a friend and then trying to explain it to someone else. If there is a point to this, it's keep your chins up girls!

And speaking of TTC.... I have nothing to report. Hahaha! I'm crazy!

Last nite (after Ava went to sleep and Faith went to my parent's house for the night) Jef and I sat on the couch, enjoyed a glass of wine* and listened to music for hours. I was the dj so I started us off with The Eagles then Boston, The Who (say it with me: Roger Daltrey is HOT), Jimmy Buffet, Queen, and then the Moulin Rouge soundtrack. We laughed, we talked, we did some air-banding and a little dancing! This morning there were clothes tossed all around the living room. Like people just suddenly got hot or something. There was a bra on the lamp, pants were inside out. I dunno what happened!

*I enjoyed wine, he enjoyed vodka, but it sounds more romantic for us to be having wine so envision that!

For those who have asked (Meg & Kris) the Jeep is a 1979 CJ7 with a CJ5 top (Ronny shortened it). So now it's a Jeep Truck (jruck as Jef says). Here's a few pics:

Here's Jef as a teen... when he had hair! Bald = low maintenance. I like!!

My words of wisdom for the day:
Never sneeze on your camera lens.

oooooh I like that Jeep! Jef doesn't happen to have an old 64 Ford truck laying around there somewhere that he'd like to get rid of would he? I would so love to buy one and restore it..but K says "over my dead body will you have some old truck parked in front of my house while you restore it." So, I guess that's a no?
Sounds like you and Jef had a lovely evening....bra on the lamp and all that. Sometimes just sitting around and being silly together is pretty good medicine.

Deena said...

What a cute pic of Jef! with hair!

I guess somebody got lucky last night? YES!

Your evening sounds fab. I think more of those are in order.

Estella's Moms said...

Great jruck!!! I agree completely about the feelings on the other side of ttc. While ttc (and while preg) I told myself that I'd never go through that again...but #2 is in the planning stages. They're completely worth it.

Kelly said...

Cool jruck! Hope you guys have fun with it! Or in it... *hint, hint, Jef*
What a lovely evening you had! I could use one of those right now. Life has been stressful round these parts, and night of just hanging out sounds divine!
And I also want to encourage our TTC friends to keep up the faith. This journey takes so much out of you, but the result is well worth everything you put into it. And know that you are not alone. There are many, many women praying for you, hoping for you, riding the emotional roller coaster with you. We're here to lift you up as you have lifted us up. We love you!

Thanks for the shout-out! I love the Jeep; I'm sure B is coveting it right now. I'm bucking up a little, but I really appreciate everyone's encouragement.

kittenroar5 said...

Oh, and I'm glad your evening had a little moulin in it... I keep it on my pod for just such an occassion. I have Poe song I think you'd really like...

Michelle said...

Thanks for the "keep your chin up" paragraph. I need that today. I am 11 DPO and going nuts now. But Im way chicken to test or to actually believe I am pregnant. Then I think to myself, with 2 huge eggies and IUI perfect timing, I have to be pregnant. Then I go back to being chicken in believing that cuz I dont want to get hurt. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Milk Maid said...

Poe... I remember her! Which song??

Marcy "meg" said...

Oh yes... Kris would love that jeep!!!! Let us know when he is ready to pass it along!!! :) And your evening does sound like it went quite well.. bras on the lamps can never be a bad thing!

Thanks for the shout out from you and Berrymom! You guys are so awesome and I don't know what I would do without your support!

Michell said...

Thanks for the pep talk about TTC. It helps to hear words of wisdom from someone who's been there.
It sounds like a great evening if there were clothes everywhere like that. You're right about the bald being low maintenence and oh so hot.

kittenroar5 said...

POE .. I'm not a virgin anymore. I told B I was going to send you a mix cd of sex songs, but she said that would be weird. So I rethought a moment, and said, yep. Don't want to be the blog world's lesbian stalker. (Don't worry, I'm only in to butch girls!)

Milk Maid said...

A Lesbian stalker would be much better than my last stalker (I really must blog that)!! I wouldnt think it was weird... at all. :D

kittenroar5 said...

what's really sad is that i keep thinking... now this would make a great song for the mix... oh well.. i love imixes!
