SIL is preggers!

I am very excited (and a little jealous). My SIL is pregnant with #2! She sent me a message over Facebook yesterday asking me about cloth diapers. I am so excited she is interested. I am going to load most of mine up Saturday and show her when I pick Roo up. I am trying to think of everything I have learned these past 6 or so months and what I would do different if it were up to me. I have been taking notes, doing research and looking at everything. I just hope that I can sell her on it.

I am also hoping that since they are preggers, B will accept starting to try for number 2. I so want to be pregnant one more time. I don't feel like our family is complete unless we at least try for another child. Plus, I have been saving all of Roo's clothes and it seems like a waste of space if we don't have another kiddo.

Day to Day stuff.

I can not get woke up today. I am still sick and now Roo is too. B said his throat hurt last night, so I am sure he is getting sick too. Ugh, I can't wait for this to be done.

On a brighter note, I got fluffy mail yesterday! I had ordered some new hemp inserts, a new wetbag and a sample of Rockin Green in hard rock. I also used a code for a free diaper and got a Happy Heiny in Sage. I love these diapers. Got it washed and it was drying when I went to bed. I have another order pending with a BumGenius 4.0 and some more inserts. I should get another free diaper then and I can't wait! I really hope its something we hadn't tried yet. I really have a problem with diapers. I think I need to have another baby to justify all of them. Now I just need to convince B that we should start TTC#2. Hehe.

Also, M and I are going to try amber jewelry for our aches and pains. I have been reading about how good it is for teething babies and how it helps with all sorts of other ailments and immediatly thought of M with her psorisis. Another all natural she is game to try. I figure if the necklace doesn't nothing for me, B can try it for his migraines or Roo can try it for teething. Good deal all around.

Okay, gotta run. Gonna try "rockin a soak" tonight using my new hard rock. I will take pictures.

Still Sick

So, I am still sick. And its not because I haven't been taking care of myself. I totally have. I took 2 naps yesterday, one of which was like 3 hours long. I have been drinking lots of fluids and trying to eat well. So this morning, on our way to work and daycare, Roo had "the cough". Yup, pretty sure she is getting sick too. Great news. I guess its time to get the lysol back out and be a freak about it. But it gives me such a headache when I am sick that I hate spraying it. But I know that since I have been sick, Roo is getting sick, that B will be sick by this time next week. Which means, he is sicker than anyone has ever been in the history of the world. Not exaggerating at all. Just when I get to feeling better, he will be flat on his back and I will have to take care of him. I hate being sick.

So, thats really all I have. I didn't do jack this weekend except laundry. I didn't go anywhere. It sucked. Yay me.

I hate being sick. I hate not having the energy to play with Roo before she goes to bed. I hate not having patience with her because I don't feel well. I hate having to tell her no, I can't do that right now. Its just a cold and I will be over it soon, but until I am over it, I feel like a terrible mother. I know that I am not, but still. I hate being sick.

On a happier note, I found a lady on Craigslist that was selling diapers for dirt cheap. 5 Bum Genius 3.0's, 1 Bum Genius Large AIO, 1 Fuzzibunz, 1 Happy Heiny and 1 Rumparooz. All for $80 shipped! I am so excited! She did say they needed to be stripped, but I have on order some Rockin' Green Hard Rock. So that is probably what I will be doing in the evenings this weekend. Then the Bum Genius are going up for sale. I don't like the hook and loop, so I am hoping to make a little money off them.

I also have enroute to my house a new Bum Genius 4.0 with snaps! I am so excited to try it. The hook and loop was the main reason I didn't like Bum Genius. I am hoping with the snaps I will love them.

Okay, time to sign off.

Selling Gold

So M is bringing some gold in for me to sell today. I am dying to know how much it is worth. While I am waiting, I have been shopping. What for? you ask. Diapers! I have a custom BottomBumpers from Little Squigglers picked out. Thinking yellow dipe with "my daddy my hero" embrodered. Yes, I am still trying to get him on board with this and that way, if we start ttc #2, we have a good stash built up.

I will update when we find out how much we are getting.

Otherwise, rocked another soak last night. Not really impressed. Stains were lighter, but not gone and water was cloudy but nothing outrageous. I am going to try this weekend with some towels or B's uniform.

Alright, I think lunch is done.

Rockin Green

So I finally ordered some Rockin Green in Lavender Mint Revival. It arrived last night. I was so excited to "rock a soak". I got all my dipes in the bathtub and filled with hot water and several tablespoons of Rockin Green. I left them for about 2 hours. I was so excited to see what came out of my diapers.

Fast forward to several hours later. Water is still clear. Hum. I am wondering what is going on. I empty the tub and put more hot water in. Leave it for about 30 minutes.

Fast forward again. Still clear. Odd. I transferred the diapers to the washing machine. Ran through my normal routine and put them in the dryer. Well, put the inserts and AIO's in, the covers, I hung. They smelled clean, which is good, but I didn't get the nasty water like the pictures all show. I wonder if I left it long enough? I am going to try again, but maybe only use a few diapers instead of my entire stash.

Alright, time to go.
