Re: WEEKEND Back 2 Basics...

why oh why can't the kids manage to eat dinner, take a bath and get in the bed without causing me to get a headache....

Well the baby is in the bed but probably not for the night, the girls are soaking wet and in the bed, DS has finally stopped pouting and gone to bed...

I'm sitting here typing away...neglecting my crochet project and the pics I should be taking of the things left for FSOT and the other stuff that still needs to be listed...too much work for one little old me to process right now

so far today I've:
eaten lasagna
crocheted a bit
taken a nap
changed the baby more times then I care to count
nursed the baby
fed the kids
washed dishes
sorted dirty laundry to be washed
dried the girls hair after their bath
folded the last load of clean laundry

WOTB: another lavendar infant prefold trifolded in the bumkins cover

Re: WEEKEND Back 2 Basics...

I'm sitting here on my new laptop, surfing the net. All three kids are asleep, and DH is doing literally two full sinkloads of dishes (in exchange for sexual favors to be redeemed at a later date). Life is really good right now...

Re: WEEKEND Back 2 Basics...

Monica, I thought I'd post a pic of my recycled longies for you to see that homemade recycled can be cute and inexpensive. Everyone else has seen this, so I apologize in advance for the repeat:

It's all about finding the right sweater. The denim colored ones are my only crocheted pair, the rest were all made from sweaters. If you are at least a novice sewer with a machine that can do zigzag, you have everything you need.

Re: WEEKEND Back 2 Basics...

Has anyone ever ordered from this HC store before?
http://hyenacart.com/Rachelslegalpad/index.php
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

That does sound nice though.

What kind of laptop did you get?

Re: WEEKEND Back 2 Basics...

Yeah, dishes have become the bain of my existence these days since becoming more thrifty and green. I try to not use any paper goods, and make food instead of convenience foods, etc and while it does save money and the environment it sure makes for a lot of dishes and laundry.
