white mice


Last week I bought a $200 dollar box of tampons...and they were even the Western Family Brand.

So my 1949 home is cute and small...and so are the pipes.

so the story goes...sucking up gallons of water with the shop vac...

The kind words of my husband, "Don't flush them down the toilet ever again" as we pulled up the linoleum floor in our newly finished laundry room.

My words, "I'll get the fan to air it out"

It wasn't the most pleasant learning experience-

The plumber's word, "beware of the white mice...they will do it every time"

I guess the Western Family brand isn't that bad after all. I would say their tampons are quite comparable to other brands when it comes to absorption.

ooooooooooohhhh April, I really really needed that laugh!!! I still am giggling about the white mice. Isn't being a girl so fun sometimes. LOL When Shane and I moved in to our very first apartment, we had to sign a contract stating that we would not flush tampons down the toliet, Shane didn't think that it applied to him and was quite unhappy when they made him sign it LOL.

I am so sorry that happened, but seriously I havent laughed like that in a long time hahaha!!! Love you

Oh yucky!!! I never flush them down the toilet in fear of something like that....yuck! And how did you spend $200 on tampons anyways? Sounds like a year supply of them!

Tami- the plumber's bill was $200 to rooter out the tampons from the pipes...hence- one expensive box of tampons.
