Sanitary Napkins

I am sitting here at my computer with a WONDERFUL glass of wine. This is one of the only reasons I can be glad that I am not pregnant. I truly missed drinking. But that is for another post on another day.

Yes, I am wearing sanitary napkins or pads for short. I had to go and buy them the day there was no heartbeat. I took I along with me to figure out just what I needed. I haven't worn pads since I started my period almost 20 years ago. WOW I am sure old! I had no clue what I was buying. I just didn't want to wake up in the middle of the night covered in blood. I had an awful picture from one of my favorite books stuck in my mind every night when I would go to bed.

So I bought Always ultra thin with wings for day and also the HUGE DIAPER ones for night. I HATE pads. I hate them with a passion. I feel like I am wearing a diaper. There are times that I can actually hear it move around and make that awful embarrassing sound. I even warned my friends about it at times.

Well this morning I went to put the freaking pad on and actually read what was on the little paper that sticks to the wings. Have a Happy Period! WHAT THE HECK!!! Of course I couldn't stop laughing but truly who has a happy period? Who decided on that great marketing idea? A man?

I told Grumps about it tonight when I went to change it again. Sorry for all the changing of pads but I truly hate them with a passion. DIRTY DIRTY THINGS! Grumps couldn't stop laughing at the thought of it saying, Have a Happy Period! He started thinking of other ways to use period as their marketing tool. His favorite was, "Every month ends in a period!"

Has anyone else noticed that little saying on their pads?

*As I was looking for pictures for this blog I actually found a website where you can make your own. WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING?!!

Oh I LOVE this post. I can just hear your voice. AND what is up with the pad picture. Wheat? Flowers? Who sets up a photo shoot like that? I am sure thankful I have the job I have even though I hate it most of the time. I wouldn't want to be a 'pad photographer'. Love Grumps'marketing idea.

I know! I couldn't resist the picture of the pad and the wheat. I thought, "Who the heck thought this photo up?" A man for sure!!!! I am glad that you could hear me in it. It felt good to blog about something funny for a change!!!

Sunny, you are coming back, I can just hear in it your post! I bawled my eyes out at one of your posts below, but Grumps made me chuckle with his marketing idea. :) I love you, and I'm so happy you are using blogs to get these heavy items off your chest. I'm praying for you every day.

First of all, who would put the sticky side on their nethers instead of their underwear? OMG. OUCH.

I, too, hate the barbie doll mattresses. Ugh - how I hate them. Hope your need for them is over soon.

Thank you Sausage for stopping by and for seeing me beginning to come out. I love you too. Thank you for praying!

Alli I never thought of them as barbie doll mattresses. That is priceless. Today was actually my first day without one.

I actually forgot to put one on and almost bought on eat the movie theater. UGH! But thank God they didn't have any in the bathrooms. It looks like I am on the up side of things.
