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.

And That Makes Me A VIP

The cruise ship people called day before yesterday... I saw the caller ID and immediately thought, "Oh hell!". Let's face it, my luck isn't so hot as of late... I could only imagine what they were going to spring on me to further screw up my day.

The lady started talking and I was halfway listening through her "no obligation" pitch. Until she said free room upgrade. Literally, my ears pricked up. To continue the puppy analogy, I started salivating when I finally heard just what this lady was telling me. You see, when we booked our cruise through the Happy Cruise Company (not revealing their name here as of yet so no one will come to port and kidnap me for a sizable ransom) they said no upgrades were available at that time. We've cruised a lot- and we know that there are always upgrades if you wait long enough. Well, we were going to call at the end of this week... but I'm glad we waited.

Because... (I know, stay on track!)...

We got a complementary upgrade from our lowly cabin with a small porthole view to an EFFIN (may I borrow that RaJen?) STATEROOM. This room is double the square footage, has a whirlpool tub, bigger beds, Faith wont have to sleep on a roll out cot either! The only "catch" so to speak is that the balcony view is "partially obscured" by a life boat. Like I care!! This room retails per person for almost what we paid for the entire family to cruise. I don't care if I have to peek around a boat (and if the ship sinks then I can save myself first!).

Probably the best part about all of this is (ok, 2 best parts)-

Reason #1: There are 9 other cabins on this floor with us. Period. Ten total. Not hundreds. Just ten. These are the cabins Jef and I would sneak into while the maids were cleaning in previous cruises just so we could say "Heeey we saw the suite!".

Reason #2: I printed out our new luggage tags and we are VIPs. It says it right on my tag. I have never been a VIP. I've not even been a MIP (moderately important person) before!! I looked on the Happy Cruise Company's website to see just what perks a VIP such as myself (ok the other family members too) would be entitled to. We get to go thru the special VIP embarkation line when boarding for starters. No Average Joe lines for me thanks! Plus, we're first to disembark ship too! Whew- cause when I'm done with that cruise believe me, my fanny is heading for home and no one better stand in my way!

I hope this good run of luck holds, because I'm hitting the roulette wheel in the casino and playing my lucky numbers as soon as we get into international waters! It's slightly more than a week away~

--The Milk Maid says lucky luck luck to ALL, and to all a good night!

If you were kidnapped, i'd totally round up the gang and see if we could a. come up with the ransom money, or b. launch a stealth mission to save you guys.

Hopefully, we could come up with the cash..beause i'm not so stealthy. : )

Well how exciting! I have to admit though... I am going to miss you :(

Ethansmama said...

I can't believe it is so close. i will miss you too. Not sure what I will do without you. Maybe this kind of luck will hold up until after the cruise and Jef goes back to the doc.
