Blustery Friday

I'm hiding in my room again and Micah is passed out on the bed beside me. He is so cute! He is wearing this really soft, fuzzy brown one-piece hooded outfit and it is so cozy! Anyway.

I was supposed to go to town today. I wanted to buy a couple more diapers for Micah because our stash is lacking for both boys, because Micah keeps dipping into Jamie's stash. We decided on what kind we want to get for Micah, which is Fuzzi Bunz perfect fit pocket diapers, size small. However, I was not about to drive into town with three little boys and no other adults. I am not crazy. Not that crazy anyway. So I thought I'd wait until Mike got home from work and then we'd all go together, or else I'd go alone. Completely kid and baby free. But, I have since chickened out. Not chickened, exactly, but I just don't feel like it anymore. The problem is, it is urgent. We are going to the big city tomorrow for Thanksgiving and we will be staying overnight. I don't want to do disposable diapers the whole time because it's just a waste of money, but we will not have enough cloth diapers to sustain both boys for two days, and I don't want to impose on my parents by doing our laundry there. They pay for their water, so it would cost them and I just don't feel right about it. That's why I wanted to get these extra diapers in town tonight, but it is freezing cold out and has been snowing on and off throughout the day, at times heavy. The truth is, I just don't want to brave the highway tonight, just in case. I'm sure it will be fine, but I have already decided to skip the trip. I am exhausted too, and last time I drove in for my ophthalmologist appointment I nearly fell asleep while driving on the highway because I was so tired. I don't want to do that today. So, it turns out there is a store very close to my parents' place that sells the diapers that I want and they are a dollar cheaper per diaper. I feel a bit guilty to not support a local business, but at the same time, their prices are higher than anywhere else I've seen. So that's the plan.

Oh, and to update last night's situation, Micah did NOT sleep through the night. He was up at 2:20 a.m. because he pooped. I was very disappointed. I fed him and he did go back to sleep until 7:15 a.m. which is not too bad, but I was still disappointed. It wasn't the greatest sleep.

Tonight, it is laundry, cleaning and packing time. I wanted to save the laundry for this evening so everything would be clean for our trip. I also want to have this house good and clean before we go away because there is nothing more discouraging than being gone overnight and returning to a house that looks like a dump. Okay, it actually does not look like a dump in here. I have been working all week to try to avoid that scenario, and even though it is not even close to spotless in here, it is certainly no dump either. But there is still quite a bit to do tonight. This is the kind of evening that I'd rather be home in the cozy house than out braving the wind and snow. That's pathetic because this is NOTHING compared to winter, but still. I feel like having a cup of hot chocolate and some popcorn or hot cookies or something and watching a fun movie. I suppose vacuuming and doing dishes can be therapeutic in its own way...but regardless, it has to be done.

And now, just before I sign off, I just want to give a little plug to a business I have been dealing with since April of this year. They are called Mom's Milk Boutique, and they are located in the United States. I have bought some of my diapers there, and I just want to say how fabulous they have been with customer service and reliability. Their website is and they have lots of good products. I have dealt with Bonnie and Abbie, and I am assuming they are the owners. Both of them were wonderful and very quick to respond to my emails every time. It is clear to me that they care about their customers and it is important to them to give good service.

Anyway, I really wanted to put that in there. I will probably mention them from time to time in here. I have to sign off now. I think it's supper time. I may not be back until Sunday or Monday. Hopefully I survive this weekend emotionally intact. I have been dreading it for some time now, but that's another story and one that will not be told in this blog. Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!
