Hubby gone

So the hubby is gone camping this week with friends from work. I don't know why I am missing him so much, I don't really get to see him during the week (or the weekend, truth be told), but I am. Maybe its because I get a break from getting up at 6 at least one day during the week, cause I get to leave Roo at home with him. Maybe its just worry about what exactly is going to go on out there. I don't know. But I miss him terrible. And I know he is going to be tired when he gets home, so no work out of him. And next week on 2 of his days off, he will be in Little Rock for a class. So basically, I get to see him a week from Saturday, if I am lucky. Great. And he wonders why I am so stressed out all of the time.

Oh, well. Back to work.

Home Grown Families

If you like Rockin' Green, or want to try it, head over to Home Grown Families. They are having a giveaway of this amazing stuff. I have used it a little, and wow. It really is amazing. Plus, you can use it for everything. They have great scents. Go check it out.

Busy weekend

Wow, did that weekend go by quick! Yard saleing Saturday, followed by the lake. Sunday, the inlaws came up for Roo's swim lesson. What fun! And then Grandma, Roo and I went shopping. Had to return a gift from Old Navy and hit the best sale ever! 30% off everything in the store. Yikes! Didn't go nuts, which was good. Spent a little more than needed, but I really did need everything.

So, Friday, I got my box of Crunchy Clean for diapers. Yum! Smells awesome. Washed some dipes in it and no stinkys. Yay! I am so happy. I think this is the solution. I will keep you updated.

Another giveaway to talk about. Home Grown Families is giving away a Bum Essentials in choice of color! So cute! You have got to check it out. These diapers look amazing! She did a review and said how soft they are. Go enter and tell them I sent you!

Hadn't been able to post

So, I have been so busy this week and hadn't been able to post. We had a jury trial Monday and Tuesday and were out of the office. Wednesday was catchup and Thursday I had people in and out of the office all day. So I am finally back!

Anyways, I still have not won a contest but its not for lack of trying. I am an entering fool! The latest one is on Cloth Diaper Blog and is for 2 Knickernappies and choice of insert. These are cool looking diapers, with side snaps. Go take a look and tell them I sent you!

Also, I have been fighting some stinky with my diapers this week. I am awaiting a bag of Crunchy Clean and some RLR, and in the meantime, I am washing in Dawn and Vinegar. It is taking forever! I am hoping to lay them outside for a while this weekend, cause I also have some stains. Extra yuck. Wish me luck.

Court

Today I went to court to be with one of my clients. I showed up at 1 pm, like I told her I would. I had told her to be there then, and we would go over what she could expect. At 1:25, I finally sat down in the court room. She was called 3 times and her protection order was dismissed due to fail to appear. She finally showed up aroun 1:50 and couldn't understand what happened. She blamed everything on her mom, who was her ride. I know she wanted this order to be permenent, I just can't understand why she wouldn't try harder to be to court on time. I should have known this would happen, though, because she has missed other appointments and is kind of flighty. I am so disappointed. In her being late, in the way she talked to her mother. I wanted her to be more on top of this, since she was violated. I guess I am just mad because I so wanted her to get this approved. I wanted to see her stand up to him in open court. I wanted her to feel in charge for a moment. Ugh. I just hope he isn't stupid and threatens or hurts her.

I have another one coming up on Friday. I hope it goes better.

Missing the girl

Well, my sweet girl isn't home tonight. She went to spend a couple of nights with MawMaw and PawPaw. Gosh, I miss her so much! I never would have thought I would before she was born, but now I can't hardly stand for her to be gone. I tried to keep busy, but without my little distraction, I have gotten way more done and am now bored.

Since she was gone, I got a bottle of wine to enjoy with my chores. Did laundry, dishes, made dinner for tomorrow, played with the dogs. Ugh, I hate it when she is gone! I am so glad she will be home tomorrow. How does someone so little make up such a big part of our lives?

Also, I took the time to enter another giveaway. I have a terrible problem. I think it will become worse if I actually win something. But it is so much fun to enter! You get to review websites, look at diapers, and think of how you could use the item. I love it!

Alright, I am going to take my somewhat intox butt to bed. Good night all!
So I have a big problem. I love entering giveaways! I have been an entering fool on the cloth diaper blogsites.

My newest one is on 29 diapers. They are giving away Thirsties Wipes and Booty Luster. I have been using cloth wipes a little, but I have been making my own solution. I love the idea of a light scent.

Anways, go check it out!

Hot Weather

So, down here in the South, it gets hot. And it usually gets really hot, really early. Which is fine, we all have air conditioning. It sucks to turn it on, cause the electric bill goes up, but you can't live without it. When I walked into the office today, it seemed a little warm. Monday morning, I figured it was turned up for the weekend. Nope, air is out. Oh my gosh. Its kind of a cooler day, only supposed to be in the mid 80's. I am totally dying. I am sitting in front of a fan that was loaned to me with my window open, trying to catch a breeze. Plus, I am competely sunburned. What was I thinking? I went to the pool yesterday and I guess I thought since it was late afternoon, I didn't need sunscreen. Nope, totally fried. I couldn't even where a bra today. I am kind of a idiot.

Moral of this sad tail: Sunscreen! Fans! A/C! All blessings from God.

Follower!!

I am so excited. I have a follower! I don't know if anyone else will find my ramblings interesting, but I am so EXCITED!

Steph-I checked out your blog and love it! It made me think and be very greatful for my wonderful blessings. Thank you!

Yard Sales

M and I and Monkey went yard saleing today. I can't believe the deals you can get at yard sales! At one sale, I got 4 or 5 pairs of dress pants, a pair of dress capris, and a pair of Levis for $4. Plus a thing of brand new baby lotion and a insulated bottle. Amazing. Plus, I tried everything on when I got home and it all fit! The pair of capris may go to consignment because they are really low rise and just may be too young. But we will see. At another sale, I got a Walmart sack full of baby boy cloths, 2 crib sheets, a crib mattress cover, 3 nice shirts for B and a pair of Robeez for my friend for $7! This was a great day. Earlier in the day, I bought a little kitchen set for Monkey, for $5! Its a two piece one and needs to be cleaned, but she won't care about that. So excited.

I love hitting yard sales. I may have a problem. Its all I want to do on the weekends. It may be time to find a self help group.

"Hello, my name is Lacey and I am addicted to Yard Sales."

Birthday

So today is my birthday. I am having a really hard time dealing with it. I hate this time of year and no matter what I do, I am in a bad mood and really irritable. I am trying to fight it, but it seems to be a loosing battle.

Anyways, we had a fun little visitor last night. I let the dogs out about 10 and when I let them back in, I noticed Baylee the lab kind of stop at the door. Very wierd, so I looked a little closer and noticed something move. Kind of freaked out, I turned on the light. It was a huge toad inside the house! I captured him and let him out the front door, after taking a few pictures of him for Facebook. Not what I expected, but fun.

Anyways, going for now. God Bless.

Pampers

Has anyone seen or heard about the info Pampers has recently put out stating that disposables are better for babies that cloth? What a load of crap. There is a thing going on right now about how the newest Pampers are causing babies to have chemical burns and all sorts of other problems. I have never heard of cotton causing this. Yeah, sometimes the detergent used can cause problems, but washing with more water usually takes care of it. We only use cloth part time (mostly at daycare and when Daddy is in charge), but I am done buying Pampers. I didn't really like the way they felt anyways and this is a great reason to make the switch back to Huggies.

I stripped my pockets last night. We had a little bit of repelling on the Haute Pockets and some smell residue, so I threw them all in with a little Dawn and ran 2 Whitest Whites, 2 Quick Washes on hot with extra rinse. I put the AIO's and inserts in the dryer this morning and they smelled wonderful. No smell really to them at all. I think we will be ready to go again for the weekend.

I am finding the more I cloth Diaper my monkey, the more diapers and kids I want. I hadn't talked to the hubby yet, but I am dying for another. And I can't stop buying them. Has anyone seen this website www.babyhalfoff.com ? Awesome! They run one deal a day, and the items are at least half off. They just ran a Dream-eze AIO sale for $10.50 each! Thankfully, they were out of our size in one of the colors, so I only ordered 2. Yesterday, they ran a sale on squeaker shoes. I had to get a pair for Monkey and her cousin. So cute! And only $9.99!

Okay, better go. Blessed day to you all!

Holiday Weekends

Happy belated Memorial Day! It was a good weekend, but needed to be longer. As usual. Got to spend all 3 days with baby girl. We tried to use the potty, but she is just not ready yet. We will try again next month.

This holiday weekend marked the 3rd anniversary of my father's death. It was harder this year, I think, than in years past. Maybe because Roo is getting so big and he is missing everything. I don't really know. I had a good cry and remembered good things about him.

On a plus side, I was able to cloth diaper all weekend! Roo only one disposable when Daddy changed her and 2 swim diapers. We even wore cloth to the the lake. And oh boy, what an adventure that was. Some people were commenting on her diaper and how gross it was to let kids swim in diapers. Unfortunatly I didn't hear it. I was in enough of a rough place, I would have let her have it. Probably a good thing, because then my husband would have had to arrest me for disorderly conduct.

Anyways, thanks to all the Veterans and those serving. I appreciate it all.
