Me too. I am still working on my Tueday Bear slot, she can't do what I had originally wanted because of copyright issues so I am obsessing over it.

And, no, it doesn't count if you have already ordered a slot or paid for something. We are talking about bidding or placing new items in a cart...

How is everyone else coping? I did not get a single item of fluff today. Let me tell you, that does not make it easy. Oh, I did get a bill for my Pottery Barn card, that helped... not.

I'm not joining. I'm in the process of selling off diapers that I don't use - and when I'm done I'll be getting more Knickernappies. I Knickernappies - I don't think I'll ever have enough!

Is this grumpiness withdrawal? I think it's worse than a caffiene headache, but not as bad as when I quit smoking (which is good b/c I know I can *never* have another cigarette, but I believe I may be able to do some social diaper buying, iykwim).

I hope it is still okay for me to join you guys, even though I failed so miserably yesterday. I am really trying today, though. The one thing that's bothering me is this rumor about pinhead stocking. Is it really true? I think that out of respect to her loyal customers she should wait till we're done w/ this.

Oh, and another thing, I think I might be pregnant (just a feeling, don't know how you're supposed to tell when there's no af) and if so there will be no stopping me from those pinheads. Doesn't it seem like dipes used for two children are half the price? Wish I had twins.

Btw, I'm proud of you guys! Keep up the good work.

I'm not even going to mention the amount that I spent on fabric last night. We'll just say that next week should be awfully fluffy.

:LOL

But, I haven't bought any diapers... :

ETA: I should exempt myself from this anyway! My baby is going to be a little naked boy if he doesn't get some new diapers soon, either mama made or WAHM made. Can't have baby piddling on the rug.

You rule! You're a much bigger person than I, I had to make the same choice and I chose Rice...

However, my paypal is at ZERO so that stopped me from falling off the wagon in the TP today so I am officially back on.

I almost fell off the wagon on the TP but two other mama's beat me to it (Thanks mamas!!!)
It was a moment of weakness but I feel newfound strength now. It is getting easier by the hour. I'm still a little grumpy about it all and not getting any fluff in the mail today didn't help, (though the mother load I got yesterday is still having some nice residual warm fuzzy effects) but not as grumpy as I was earlier this morning. I am downing alot of pepsi to kind of make up for it...trade one stimulant for another.
Ok, deep breath ladies. We can do this!!!

That was my sale fall through! My lack of funded paypal saved me from falling off the wagon.

Butterfly, I don't know if she has it "in stock" but the oatmeal cashmere fell through and she offered me rice as a second choice. I am telling you all now that if she stocks again I will be off the wagon.

Am I the only one who is experiencing a strange hot feeling in the front of my brain? It's like a hotspot in my skull or something...

I think it's a good idea for us to remember how in love we are with items in our current, paid for, stash.
So that being said, Amy, how much do you LOVE your rice cashmere? That thing is actually softer than 100% cashmere sweaters I own!! I keep rubbing it on my cheek......

Oh, and I love my Baa Baa Bottoms longies SO much for functionality--they have never wicked in the slightest, and we use them overnight. How great is that? Love them.
We definatly have enough great stuff in our stash for me to get happy about and pet.

But I do stay up at night or kill time daydreaming about what I will need for the next baby..... even though DS went through 'newborn' size in just a few weeks, and was out of smalls by 2 months, I still want to have newborn fitteds and soakers next time around!!! I guess I'll have to pick stuff with fab-o resale value so if they get barely used, I'm not out a buncha cash. This is also helpful for me to not buy right now since we're not even TTC (or even practicing, sigh ), therefore actual newborn diaper purchases are downright silly, so I can plan them and daydream about them all I want, without getting close to purchasing!!!

Hee hee I hear you! As long as this isn't a fabric diet I think I might be able to do it (though I do tend to get a bit panicky when there isn't at least one diaper in the mail on its way to me...luckily I am waiting on a knickernappies pocket right now)...

But of course knickernappies is supposed to be stocking on Friday...hey is this a weekdays only diet?? Can we take weekends off

I so know what you mean about getting nervous if no fluff is on the way. I am awaiting a dozen various WAHM fitteds, as well as some gorgeous custom embroidered wool creations, so it's relatively easy for me to put a hold on spending, and just dream about the fluff on the way. But if there's none coming I get antsy and reallllly want to click 'confirm order' at a favorite WAHM site.....

WOO HOO!!!
I just walked away. I feel so strong. I really think that each time I resist, especially when the item is as close to me as like in my cart, I get stronger.
This is fun. I am so proud of myself now, I know I will feel I deserve a BIG FLUFFY reward at the end of this.
Anyone else's dh laughing their butt off about this? lol

O/T - Just wanted to say that we're barely practicing! Nursing takes away all desire! However if AF had come back I'd be working hard on it despite my lack of desire because I SO want some Kissaluvs 0's!

Hey, it ain't me that isn't interested.... My DH seems to have forgotten that little something special activity married men and women do when the child is sleeping in the next room.....

I wonder when AF comes back...DS was born 8/31-what about yours?
