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.

We're Not In Downtown Atlanta Any More, Toto

Gotta love this weather around the ATL as of late, huh? We got heavy rain, high wind, and tons of pea to golf ball size hail on Saturday (K, I'm so glad you got out of here when you did! I miss you, but you are much safer in TX!). I'd love to show you a bunch of photos of the hail and damage around here (which was pretty minimal) but the lightening- did I mention the lightning?- decided to zap my good computer, the monitor to this computer (everything is green and shades of purplish-white), my surround sound system, the HD-receiver in the bedroom and a few other things. Luckily, I think most everything is salvageable or repairable.

The scary part came after I had been looking outside the french doors into the back yard as the hail started coming down and I started walking away from the doors while telling Jef to get Ava to the basement. A huge boom-pop sound deafened me. Jef said he saw a flash of light from right outside, and I could feel static on my back. I had walked away inches from the spot from where the lightning had struck. That was way too close for comfort.

Today was my Med Term final exam- I made a rip-roaring 97! I'm glad to have a 2 week break between classes. I have lots of books to read (ahem- K- someone owes me a reading list!) and lots to do around the house.

Hope everyone is having a happy St. Patricks Day!

--The Milk Maid wonders how much food coloring it would take to make her have green breast milk!
