I had one of those "no good very bad days" Thursday that ended on a slightly positive note.

Let's start off with Rhiannon waking up at 2 AM and not wanting to go back to sleep until around 4. I guess my alarm went off at 5:15 before Keith left for work, but I didn't hear it. In fact, I didn't wake up until 6:45, when I had to leave to walk over to the school for Eli's therapy. Well, the super mom in me came out and I was able to take a shower, get dressed, get both kids dressed and out the door by 7:15. Huzzah for me. We arrived to his appt a little bit early and he had a decent time. He told me he played with playdo and bubbles. I am no longer allowed to attend his appt, which I am bitter about, but they say parents are too distracting. Instead I loiter in the hallway and feel bad for the teachers constantly asking me if I need help. It's right at the start of school, so I get to see all the wee rugrats in lines going to class and once again reinforcing the fact that I am GLAD I dropped out of school when I did so I didn't end up majoring in elementary education. DOOM I tell you. I loves my kids, but I don't love mouthy obnoxious ones. But every time kids would come by, I would comments on how cute Rhiannon is. Anyways, after we finished there, Keith picked us up so I could run him over to work so I could get the Gand Am. Yay for having one car he monopolizes. Then the kids and I ran to the hospital for her well baby. The appt was at 9:40 and I showed up, really embaressed, at 9:55. I really HATE running late. I'd rather not show up for something than be late (hence why I missed my sister's AIT graduation. Stinkin traffic). And what do they tell me? Oh look, your appt was at 9:20. The doctor couldn't squeeze me in and I felt awful and told them to reschedule the second I saw I was so late. They were able to fit me in at 10:20 though, that was good.

Her appointment was short and sweet, which I don't mind since we didn't have to see her regular mean peditrician I don't like. She's 24in and 13lb 2oz. So growing at a good speed. We did have a small issue, which I picked up a script for and should be working it's self out. Then she had to get shots. 4 of them. Did you know that flu shots are only allowed for 6-36 months, then the mist for 5 and up? That leaves 3 and 4 year olds out to dry. A bit unfair. I guess Elijah is just stuck getting sick, the poor monkey. Rhiannon got quite fussy the rest of the night, but she is fine now.

We went down to Jess' for a small BBQ and had a good time hanging out with her and the kids. So that made my day slightly better.

As for the rest of my weekend, it was Keith pretty much being a bum since he's learning to get used to doing this staff duty buisness. I cleaned a bit and moped because it was raining and once again, i couldn't take the kids to the pumpkin patch.

Ive been doing a ton of research on cloth diapering this weekend. Keith is still completely grossed out by the idea, but I think he will catch on when I finally find some diapers to try. It's so expensive to figure out what you want. I am overwhelmed with choices, but think I have finally settled on something. I'm such a crunchy mom anymore, nursing, making my own baby food, cloth diapering. But as my mom says "thats not hippy, that's being CHEAP". I'm just trying to save a buck since we're poor. And will be much poorer in a few months.

Speaking of that whole idea, I guess Keith and I have decided to try to attend Weber State at the same time. That should make life super exciting. I'm tired of staying at home, mostly because I am tired of being a maid. I don't want my life to consist of cleaning up after everyone forever. One of these days I'm just going to go psycho and chew everyone out until they decide to get off their duffs and help me. And not just halfassed cleaning. I'm tired of fighting with Elijah for hours to get him to pick up his laundry. Yeah, I need to work that bit out and quit bitching right. haha.

Anyways, the beeebs is getting hungry again, so I have to go feed her. Just wanted to make a quick post. Im thinking about my friends in Hawaii (Andrea, Eileen, Susan, to name a few) and I hope ya'll are okay!!


I agree, I do all that crap and I'm definitely not hippy, just cheap as hell. If you do cloth diapering definitely go all fuzzibunz or fitted with covers... I'm even to cheap for the fuzzibunz so I'm doing fitteds my momma made with covers. We're still using some disposable, but with Caleb potty training and Emily only using them when we go out and at night it makes it hella cheaper, I love it. I can buy a box and it lasts at least a month between the two of them, yay! And Eric won't have anything to do wtih them either, but really how often do they actually change a diaper anyway?

im on ur internetz callin uz namez

He changes diapers more than he did, so I guess I can't complain. He's just uncomfortable doing it with Rhiannon, for a good excuse, haha. Eli is completely out of diapers, we just have a package for just in case moments (like explosive poopin'). I keep telling Keith it doesn't have to be all the time, just mostly when we're at home. Or rather when i am, lolz.

I was considering making my own, but that's too much effort. I am thinking about buying a small package with a handful of types to see what works. I am so poor that we cant possibly afford fuzzibunz right now (I wish) but I am checking it out on ebay and just keeping my options open.


Re: im on ur internetz callin uz namez

LOL no way, I NEED a bra for this rack!

Re: im on ur internetz callin uz namez

Amen to that one. BELIEVE ME.
Yah, Justin thought that too until I saved his ass TONS of money and now he tries to get everyone to use cloth.

www.fuzzibunzseconds.net if you want some Fuzzi Bunz. They are seconds, but you can't even tell that they are flawed!
thats what I keep telling him. I even told him that he doesnt have to use them all the time. Plus I remind him of me buying the food processor he said was silly... I know what Im talking about, lol.

I'll have to go check it out. There are so many different brands and such. I want to support some WAHM, being the grass roots liberal hippy I am, but Im just not sure I would be getting decent quality, and I dont want to waste my money. We aint got that much! :)
I know what you mean. I want WAHM ones too. Everyone seems to like snap-ez if you are going w/pocket diapers.

Whoo hoo! Care package from Amy!!

holy crap dude. Your package just got here! That was the fastest shipping I have ever seen. Im going to open it and play with everything right now haha. Thanks

Eli is reading my name and saying "Rhaaaannons" and sitting on it, :)

Re: Whoo hoo! Care package from Amy!!

You are welcome! Hope you like it all!
Just reading this made me feel tired! =D
Yeah, it made me tired too because I am BORING! haha

Most days I spend locked in the house doing crap. Just once in a while I have a day where I pack everything. It always seems good in theory, but it never ends up well. the super exciting life of a stay at home slave mom.
