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.


Oink Like A Pig

We have already started "sick season" at work. There was a total of 14 confirmed cases of flu A (possibly the H1N1 swine flu strain) today in our 3 locations. Of course I swabbed most of these disease -ridden little twirps. We've also had numerous cases of strep throat and a couple of office mates have been out with the "throops"- that's Faith's term for throwing up and pooping at the same time.

Luckily, knock on wood, I have avoided the most recent emergence of the plague although it seems every child with strep has either barfed in my floor or hocked a loogie in my hair (or face). Everyone cross your fingers and pray I stay well so I can go mop up vomit and blood 5 days a week.

Jef started a new job today as parts manager of the local mitsu*bishi dealership today. He's been in and out of work since the beginning of the year so here's to hoping this job is all it's cracked up to be and we can dig out of the financial pit we are living in.

Faith is in middle school - my big 6th grader now. She's been making good grades so far and seems to enjoy all her classes. She came home sick today, but her doting mother confirmed that it isn't flu or strep so I gave her some sinus meds and sent her to bed to rest and recover.

I have officially lost 34 lbs since the beginning of the year. I'm having to buy new clothes because I look like a whole family has moved out of the butt of my pants... if I can can get my pants to stay on in the first place.
