Milk Mom...

...everytime my mom comes to visit, she brings us goodies. Sometimes its her homemade manicotti, soup, brownies, groceries, books...you name it and she brings it! The newest thing she brings us in cartons of milk. She works at a middle school and each student that buys a lunch is required to take a milk. If they don't use it, they have to put it in a crate back in the cooler. The state can't resale it so they have to give it away. They offer it to the teachers first so my mom loads up for us. Her last visit, she filled our entire fridge. No, I'm not kidding, our entire fridge...LOOK! I'm sure you're thinking what do we need all that milk for? Isn't it going to go bad? If you're asking this, then you obviously haven't met my husband who would drink a gallon of milk a day if I let him. I'm not lying! We go grocery shopping on Sundays and buy 2 full gallons of milk, they are usually gone by Tuesday...Wednesday at the latest. Know what he always does? He'll leave not even a SIP of milk so that he can say, "I didn't drink it all! I left you some!" Grrr...hopefully we'll avoid this problem for awhile! Then again, he drank 5 cartons the first night! :)

PS- The post that came up in my Dashboard started out entirely differently, but I could only see a line or two, and I just hope everything is okay!

Haha, I love this! I didn't even think about all the unused milk, but I know at my preschool, we have to give a lot of our gallons away to teachers. (Right now, we have close to 10 FULL gallons of 2%! It's crazy!)

My son want to move in - he'll give Matt a run for his money. He loves chocolate milk!

Haha, this cracks me up. We used to go through two gallons a week (for two people) so I started buying three thinking I wouldn't have to shop as often. Well now we go through all three in a week. Whenever we have kids, I'll just have to buy a cow :)

Chocolate Milk in a little cartons rock!

We buy a 1/2 gallon skim and a 1/2 gallon of chocolate and cut the chocolate with skim - WAY Too thick.

If you have extra I can drink one on Saturday!

I think it's cool they have cartons. When I was in high school they switched to bags. Yep. Bags. It was weird.
