Not EVERYONE has seen these - wow, Cheryl; gorgeous recycled woolies!!!

So far today I've:
*dyed 4 loads of solids
*taken a few pics, but not loaded them
*made spaghetti
*washed the dishes
*washed dipes (not folded yet)
*picked up/organized the toys (that was so completely futile, as they're yet again strewn all over the house)

I still have to:
*dye 2 more loads of solids
*some HC stuff
*cut out some applique pieces
*run to the store real fast
*give DS a bath


ugh, I'm tired

It's a Dell Inspirion. Whatever Best Buy has for $500 right now. Every four years I buy a new computer for $500 or less, and the last three have been Dells. Usually I but from the mfg direct, but this deal was better than any Dell had right now, and I got to take it home same day. I'd love to go Mac, but I can't afford to switch over all the software and hardware I already have.

who was it that was looking for low-cost mama pads? ESPECIALLY liners! I ordered a panda pink pad and a red/white overnight one

I have decided rather then have my "stash" be all one thing from one place, I want to mix it up and spread the love

I haven't, but her stuff always looks cool - isn't she the one that's only 14??? Sheesh, what a motivated teen!

Cool. You actually can run Windows on Macs these days. You can have a dual boot and run both Mac OS and Windows. It's pretty awesome. You can then install are your PC software on it I do that with my Mac...although I use the Mac OS more than anything.

Thank goodness not every day is like this! So many mamas are so much busier than me. I don't know how they do it!

No kidding! Well, I am planning on homeschooling, and am starting to learn my way around HC - My daughter is 13 months. What do you think; too young to be an enterpreneur? If so, then I'll start on my boy. He's 3!

Thanks! Really, I'm just very fortunate to live in Dallas where there are lots of rich people that buy beautiful wool sweaters, then remember they live in Dallas so they don't get much use and donate to Goodwill. There are a lot of mamas and WAHM who are so much better seamstresses than me, but they can't find the sweaters I do! And I only get 100% wool ones, because I could never remember which ones are not otherwise. If I was open to blends or cashmere, acrylics I could have even more to choose from. I have just as many soakers and half a dozen hats too.

I've got a small stack of summer weight sweaters I need to make longies, shorties, and soakers out of too. I love to use the super thin silky merino wool sweaters for this. I probably get asked the most about this one, which uses the same kind of sweater:

The wool is literally as thin as a tshirt and works beautifully as summer weight with a thick diaper, or under any longies that would otherwise not be nightworthy or carseatworthy.

So ladies, if you can sew at all or know someone who can, stuff like this can be yours inexpensively
