Well, last night I found some gorgeous yarn so I purchased a skein to try it out. I had PayPal funds, so it wasn't out of pocket; otherwise I wouldn't have bothered. That doesn't count, does it?

Not so terribly well..... I still feel the need to buy wool longies and soaker shorts.... why? oh why? I think I won't be able to resist 3-4 pairs of wool pants and at least my custom slot at RB for a wooly pullie..... why am I so weak?

I must sell stuff to pay for this so it's just 'rearranging my diaper wealth' and not spending more.

decided to join the wagon and i'm not even a hyena, i'm having so much trouble not bidding on the cutest diaper at familyauction. I really need a few nighttime dipes, but that's not what i'm looking at, of course Jenn has me thinking that I need some a few more pieces of wool (I only have one cover) I'm actually counting the days until payday to see what I have left after paying bills to get a diaper, I truly feel like i've gone off my rocker and i'm very glad you ladies are here for support.

I'm still here. I had a darling diaper fitted pocket in my cart and I deleted it. I have enough night time diapers. We could use some lined with fleece but I can cut some of the microfleece I have in the closet and just keep using our FF sleeptights.

I must just be happy with what we have. I must stop buying and start saving. It did help that our earth seedlings wool cover came today. Very nice.

All our diapers are in the wash and DD has on a disposable. I just have too much to do to get ready for our vacation to have to wash diapers tomorrow too. I am so lazy. :

But, I am on the wagon. And have gotten a lot done today not coming here.

Hi. : My name is Beth and my last diaper purchase was 3 fitteds (that I didn't need) from SchnooglyWear.
I have enough diapers. I have enough covers. I must move on. I'm here with you. I do have a custom soaker in the works but other then that I am with you.

Oh, I'm joining your lovely wagon support group. Not through choice, but through financial necessity! Turns out I was a little bit of a hyena-in-the-making, and we just can't afford to let me be! And I can't help but keep looking at all the lovely wool wraps and soakers--we just have a bumpy wook and a nikky wool and an aristocrat. None of the really lovely hyena ones! Oh well. I can always dream right? So, I hope that listening to you guys can help me stay right here on the wagon!

I'm on... not by choice, though I HAVE to stay on until we at least have the cash to pay my midwife next week... and I have SWORN to not buy newborn stuff until the end of summer, unless it is EXACTLY what I want ( yes, I have a VERY detailed list that I *plan* to stick with!)

AND. I'm selling. LOTS. and LOTS. Its sooo depressing

Explain something to me:

I haven't purchased much of anything in the past several weeks. I jump on the wagon yesterday to join all you awesome ladies, and I manage to make three purchases late last night and sent emails out to four WAHMs asking for info on their products? What is the deal?

Who's driving this thing?

Man, i just started this process and ALREADY need to hop on the wagon! I was at work this afternoon when the BeccaBottoms stocking was supposed to happen & i was ACTUALLY trying to stalk while at work with clients back to back! Ok, that's a problem!

on top of that, all my mad stash ordering has been coming in fast & furious this week & DH is starting to ask things like "is that it?," "what else is coming?" ugh. must stop!

I'm trying to convince myself that i can wait to buy anything else until i can post to the TP (next month) and unload some good stuff that isn't right for us. Until then, i've got a bunch of stuff we aren't using & it's too wasteful (since we're BRAND new to CDing!).

However, if i could get my hands on one of Bridget's stars & stripes soakers.....

I'm on.

I just finished buying a brand new stash for Libby (who has grown insanely and everything was too tight) and finished up the newborn stash. Soooo, here we go.

I got a litttttle too used to spending when I *needed* to buy things... and now I need to pull in the reigns.... but gosh, it is nice to get fluffymail.... and that paypal never seems like REAL money, does it?

Well, I did something today that I highly recommend: I unsubbed from ALL of my diaper groups. Now I won't know when anyone is stocking so I won't be tempted to go.

I am definately going to need some support today.

I just found out a friend of mine from LLL just had a baby boy who is going for an echo(heart murmer) and they think he has Down syndrome. It is like a huge flash back for me. We went through the same thing just over a year ago.

I try to put all that stuff from the beginning out of my mind but it can really be hard.

This is my friends 10th child and she obviously has way more mothering experience than I do. But, I am going to call her later today. I know how alone I feel sometimes - heck most of the time.

Anyway...I know I am feeling weak and will be wanting a fluffy pick-me-up. Maybe I should look for some nice wool. Or just save my money for vacation.

Akkkkk. Help me stay on the wagon please ladies.

Christi - I'm so sorry for your friend...

On another note... save the $$$$ for VACATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Can you tell I'm trying to convince myself to do the same??)

We have so many little mini trips planned - think about how sad it would be to cancel a trip. Or to not be able to afford some really fun souvenir, activity, dinner etc... while away.

Waaa hhh -- it's not working, my mouse is taking over, it's starting to open up some wahm pages, it's stalking the freakin' TP - can someone else jump in and help us?

Ok, I don't think that was very effective. I was only sub'd to 26 groups due to a massive unsub a few months ago.
I'm now down to 20:
6 don't have anything to do w/ purchasing diapers
4 are swap groups, and I don't receive emails from 2 of those
10 are from WAHMs - I'm not ready to give these up yet - I like the occasional emails from them Maybe in another couple of weeks...
