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.

You Will Become VERY Sleepy...

This working from 7:30 or 8 until 6 or 6:3o is taking a bit of a toll on me. Don't get me wrong- I still absolutely positively wonderfully wholly love my job (!!!!), but as of late I've been on my feet at the pediatric counter logging specimens, running CBCs, Hgbs, Urines (dip, micro, and culture), A1Cs, Creatinine Ratios, leads, hCGs, monos, and streps (rapid test and culture), and FOBs.

Most of those any one of you can figure out what is what in the above list, but just FYI the FOB means "Fecal Occult Blood". That means POOP. I take a card where someone has slathered their POOP all over the special paper and analyze it to see if they have blood in their stool which might be a possible indication of colon trouble (trouble meaning cancer).

Any one want to guess how week old poop that has been in a mail box for days smells? I can tell you. You don't have to guess. I know you are DYING to know. Yes you are.

--The Milk Maid says if that's the only shit she's getting at her job, then she's doing darn fine!

Sounds lovely. Just like a breath of fresh air (the poo smell, I mean).

Ah yes, the poop cards. I remember those. And the lovely people who instead of just smearing a little on the card stuffed an entire turd in the card and squished it down to go in the envelope. Yummy.
