Eh, the whole design thing (wow, I brought that up what, a month ago? And people are still talking about it!) doesn't bother me, I was just wonder why they do it. Sure, it breaks from the monotone "Here a pad, where it," deal but it seems kind of weird. Who is the person who sat at the conference meeting and said, "Hey, I know! Let's make multi-colored, butterfly patterned pads!" You've got to wonder about the person who had the mind to come up with an idea like that.... Color coding is great, but to color a pad just to color it and put butterflies on it even if they have no help in absorption?
My period went by somewhat uneventfully. It ended today. As usual, no cramps, but again with the heavy bleeding. You'd think I was losing my life's blood. (Uh, sorry if that was too much detail for anyone.) I still have a squeaky clean no-leak record, though. I think the new pads I got really helped towards that factor.
