How's it going up there?

I can't see very well from under the wheel here.

I'm on the wagon mdc style, I guess. I got an unexpected check in the mail last night and fell victim to the beccabottoms stocking this morning. But I did need the extra soakers, so maybe I was being really sensible.

I should really use the rest of this check for something practical, like replacing my nursing bras that are all falling apart miserably. Or my daisy doodle custom order which is fast approaching and supposed to be the staple of my collection.

So I need a serious strap down here.

Hello!

I will be away for the weekend, so I will probably be able to stay on the wagon pretty good (diaper-wise, that is!... yarn is another thing). Maybe I should go to the craft forum and start a wagon thread there....

I was a goner the minute I took that other diaper out of the laundry and saw how nicely the fit had readjusted!

:




I wish nursing bras weren't so darned expensive. Most are down to their last working hooks..... Funny that I could spend more on a diaper than a bra!

Um, does buying a pg test count as falling off?

Half-marathon running Mommy to 3 spunky girls and 1 sweet boy. Spending my days and nights where my kids need me most- at home with them!!

i like "on the wagon MDC style" That's what i am too. I've got a small amount of funded paypal & bought 1 MEOS from the TP last night. I don't really count that as buying b/c it's such a basic, KWIM?

BRANDI! What did it say????


I'm here, I was BAD this week though. I think I have a black eye and a broken leg...but I am going out of town this afternoon (wish me luck) and I won't have much internet time. So that's a good thing. I DO however, need to buy a high chair.

A new bum to diaper? We might have to push you off... or we can live vicariously and "window" shop for you.

(and it only counts as falling off if you are testing too early )

Brandi - yes! Inquiring minds want to know.

I am still here, I was very good at the Beccabottoms stocking yesterday even though that sushi dipe almost had me. But I'm holding on! We'll see how I do today, I have about 3 weeks before my FM order will probably be up and then I can shop some more.

Do you ladies have time to swing by and pick me up? I've been buying like crazy things I don't really need and not buying the things I DO need like a new nursing bra and longies for the winter. Don't have any more money to spend. I have more than enough diapers and need to learn how to just be happy with what I have. It's just so hard!! I actually do need more smalls for the new babe but am forcing myself to use all the one size diapers I have. I hate this! I feel like crying Somebody give me some encouragement please!

Really Suzy! Between you and .me. ! I'm tired of being flashed (o)(o) - would you buy some bras already??

Seriously though, I know how you feel when you just aren't happy with what you have even though you have enough or more than enough. Wait awhile, try the OS dipes for the new babe and that will buy you some time to save $$ to get more if they don't work out. Or to treat yourself for being good.

s don't cry!!

Um, it's a maybe. Is that possible? :LOL

I took one of the new EPT digital tests day before yesterday. It said Not Pregnant- I took it apart and there was only 1 line on the stick underneath- the control line. Took another dig test this morning- it said Not Pregnant. I took it apart again, and there is a super faint line there next to the control line. So maybe?

ETA- This was really, um, not planned. I'm going to buy another test and check this afternoon- if it's + I'm going to the b&m store that sells cloth tomorrow and buying a tiny size 0 Kissaluv.

Oooh! How exciting! I would try a traditional test, I just don't trust those digitals. Good Luck!

I have seen the digitals work, but I don't trust them, either.

I hope I hope I hope. That would be so cool, Brandi!!

We just had a similar "situation". From what others have told me, you can't rely on the lines underneath. I agree with everyone else though. I'd probably have to get another one - and use first thing in the AM pee. I was kind of relieved but a little disappointed when AF showed up 4 days late. I was already trolling the TP for newborn dipes... (I would have been excused from the wagon then too, right?)

I realy should be on the wagon, but Im running behind it, ready to jump on at a moment's notice. And in my twisted little mind, I keep thinking "Yup, this is a good way to be...running behind the wagon!"

I'm here I'm here!

Had a realization last night that my buying might be related to depression...trying to work through other ways to cheer myself up!

I am definately on. I too have been buying for the wrong reasons. We definately don't need any more diapers. Especially with what I have on the way.

I've been pretty bummed about everything with my daugter so buying takes my mind off of the bad stuff. KWIM. But I should find something else to do.

Anyway...I am not on much over the weekends so stay strong ladies.

Man! I missed a bunch of excitement already this morning, didn't I? So Brandi, are we hoping that you are, or hoping that you aren't?

Does spending $2.50 for a ddddc count as falling off the wagon?
