Wanna find me live? Head to Sarcastic Mom and help determine the future of my hair.
So Aunt Flo has come to visit again. Now, typically I can get by the first day without having to really address the issue – I mean I don?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t have to stop going commando.
Well apparently this one is different. Apparently this one decided t come on immediately. Which I didn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t know until about 11pm when I got off the bed and saw a spot. This is after I?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢d gotten strawberry juice on the bed anyway. Hotel cleaning service is gonna love me.
Now it?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s at this time that I realize all my pads etc are in some storage bin in some part of town. I remember being in my bathroom before we moved, looking at my stash going, eh, might as well pack that, I?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢m sure that period I got a few weeks ago was just a fluke, what are the chances that me being irregular AND breast feeding are going to yield a period before we get moved in?
Apparently just enough to fuck with me at 11pm when there?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s no way I?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢m waking up Tiny Baby Kaiser to go to the store.
So I remedy the situation with a breast pad in the pants and feel quite smart.
Until I wake up the next morning, sit up to pump and promptly make a spot on the bed the size of?¢‚Ç¨¬¶ well it?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s large.
At this point it occurs to me that the better choice for absorbency in an emergency might have been all the DIAPERS rather than a pad the size of a nipple that?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s not really made for this sort of thing.
So to just make today even better?¢‚Ç¨¬¶. I haul ass out of here to go to the store to get actual pads. Now I recently read a post on another blog that made me not want to buy Always. I also didn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t feel like I needed a woman diaper, so I opted against Kotex. I?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢m not quite up to trying tampons after Alex – the geography has changed enough that I don?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t want to play that game quite yet. So Carefree. Yeah. My mom used to use Carefree, this seemed like a good choice. I didn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t want a femme diaper so I got ?¢‚Ç¨?ìmedium coverage?¢‚Ç¨¬ù This seemed like a great choice.
Um yeah. It?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s a fucking pantiliner. I have 96 ?¢‚Ç¨?ìmedium coverage?¢‚Ç¨¬ù pads that are pantiliners. Don?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t let the packaging fool you. It?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s a liner. It doesn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t say this anywhere on the box. But it?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s a liner.
Oh yeah. This day is just *awesome*.
