I've stopped myself from writing the most boring post in the history of this blog. I was going to regal you with specific details on how I cleaned and organized my sewing areas, but I got a hold of myself just in time. All you need to know is that I've got a hell of a lot of buttons and all the costumes that need finishing details got hung on one end of a closet.

Now that I've got that MarthaStewart-esque post out of my system it's high time to blog about something timely. Something that's been on my mind quite a bit recently. Something that's troubling....

Why won't my husband go to the grocery store and pick up tampons for me?

I realize that my legs aren't painted on and that menstruating hasn't got me so weak that I can't pick myself up and buy all the tampons I want...but really...would a box of tampons burn his fingers if he picked up some?

Help me out here people...

PS. Speaking of tampons. Check out one of my favorite housewifely craftwhore sites. You'll LOVE it.

PPS. Thank you for the title Clarabell.


  1. That was a rather interesting idea for a tampon. I don't think I would have ever thought of that.

  2. How funny! My Hubbs has not problem at all buying them for me. But God help me, he NEVER comes home with the right ones. No matter how well I explain what the box looks like. LOL!

    Then again, I shouldn't least I have some absorbtion, lol.

    Hey Becky, I will mail you the ones you left hidden in my couch!!

  4. my daughter was 11 when she had her 1st period, being a single dad you buy tampons
    being married seems even easier...he could go to the's not like he's buying illegal drugs and he's being watched. tell him Jerry did it all the time and he's still considered "normal" in his therapy group.

  5. Yay for Jerry!
    thank heavens for cool dads everywhere... and the Angel?

    oh DEAR!

  6. How funny :) I try not to send dh to the grocery store for anything. . . he always comes back with 2 or 3 things we totally don't need that looked "interesting". Last time I sent him to the store for 2 items he came home with Jambalya mix and german spatzle (a noodle). He actually told me "you know better than to send me to the grocery store".

  7. You're just too lax with him. It should be a requirement... All men who stop here (pointing at your lovely self) should be required to help with the care and maintenance thereof.

  8. oops, I forgot, love the new wings!

  9. My God, that's hilarious. Digging to the bottom of your sewing basket never fails...great job sister...great blog...never boring.

  10. My husband refuses to do this too. The only time he ever bought feminine products was during that lovely post birth period when you have to wear those pads bigger than your head. So basically I have to be recovering from major surgery (c-section) and have cracked nipples before the man will break down and buy me feminine supplies. I figure if I can buy condoms he can buy tampons. He's doesn't see the correlation.
