Although I have some PayPal in my account, I am being good... I have to buy some yarn, so I will keep my little mits off of it for the day.

And is Angelica off somewhere, enjoying her day? She is the first to start this thread.

I am definately on. DH is very concerned that his office may be closing. That would be very bad. I don't even want to think about it.

But I will definately not be buying any diapers for a while. Selling some old ones to buy maybe but no impulse buys. I am deciding what we like best to make an good choice so I can simplify. Right now I am really liking her sidesnapping FMBG. It is so hard to decide.

Wool does need to be purchased I will be doing that today. That is for a paying soaker job so that is a good thing.

Hold me on tight. I fell off last night for 4 salamander soakers Stacy from LLL offered to the mailing list only. : Well, there went the $$ I got for selling some nursing bras on ebay. Good thing I've still got a baby monitor that's at $30 right now...

I got my Fern and Faerie pattern in the mail yesterday! Hooray! I already have the yarn for it because I'm the sort who just buys yarn without projects in mind (My name is Alison and I am a yarn addict. : ). Anyway, it does help you stay on the wagon!

That said, the daycare accidentally threw one of my diapers away , and it was a daddy-diaper too, so I think that it's only fair that I be allowed to replace it! So, I might have to fall off the wagon (just briefly!) for that.

Yup, I have been enjoying my day, Meredith. I went into the marketplace and picked up a liter of yummmmmalicious strawberries and added some items to my own flea market table (feels SO good to get rid of crap around the house you don't need/use), and then took a 2 hour nap snuggled up with the snuggly bug, and then I actually cleaned my house, scrubbing the floor shiny everywhere even though I just did so yesterday because crumbs & debris just come inside from everywhere constantly! ( so unlike me) And I have a workout class to go to while my mom watches DS in about an hour and a half. AND I have fluffymail today I have to go pick up at the post office,....in just 30 more minutes! I don't have a clue what it is but I can't wait! (hoping for my custom RB wooly pullie) My mom is working on a natural colored striped soaker for a MDC mama friend of mine who likes the bulkier crochet knit and wants her babe to match mine and she is also making the buggle a knitted soaker with some merino wool we found at the corner store that is Wal-Mart-esque in it's offerings.

But you know what, even with all the cleaning, napping, cuddling, flea-market-tabling, strawberry buying, going-to-the-gym-plans, and all..... I have been constantly wondering about my Bottom Bumpers custom order that I fell off the wagon with.... how many? Front snap side snap colors????? So many choices... I am bad. :

does it count that I am getting one, used, old-style beccabottoms AIO for very cheap from becky? no, right? i had to add a little $ to my custom order b/c i made a few changes & adding just $8 more for an AIO seems very wagon-friendly :LOL i'm quickly frittering my paypal $ away & my daisy-doodles number is coming up fast :

What time is it there exactly Angelica?! It's only 9am here and I can't even think about what I'm going to be doing today. :LOL I'm tired just reading about yours.

I'm still here but thinking of falling off for prefolds. I decided last night that I had to wash everything so that I had my entire stash clean and folded on the changing table with nothing in the diaper pail. So I washed all of the fitteds by themselves and then into the dryer. Then I threw all of my prefolds (dyed ones included) into the wash, I had already washed the dyed ones once alone so I figured I was safe to wash them with the others...wrong! All of my white prefolds are now a pretty shade of baby pink. I tried washing them this morning with a little bleach to whiten them again and it didn't work. Ack! Vent over

Ok, I'm still here but I may be jumping off very soon!

Glad to know I am not the only yarn addict on the wagon!! I was talking about making a trip to our local YS with DH yesterday... he looked at me and said "what's wrong with the 10 skeins of yarn sitting around here now?"

It is an obsession....

Um. I fell off. Last night. I think Amy ran right over me, too. I've got a skid mark from a wagon wheel on my back. Thanks to the incredible sweetness of a certain mama and some luck on my part (it not working out for her dd), I scored the KSS Falling Dusk from last week's stocking. (And I used $$ from selling dipes to pay for it) But I have to say, I'm not even feeling guilty for my transgression- it was worth the injury from the fall, too. But I'm back on today.

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!!

Well, i'm still here I haven't bought anything in a while and I tell you it get easier everyday (although I haven't been able to stop looking), I'm still planning a big purchase next month so that's helping me to hang on. I've also been looking at this year's curriculum for the older kids so that's definitly helping me not to spend and we may be getting two dogs, so coming up with a pet deposit will be consuming me now, but I know that diapers will never be far from my mind. We can do it.

I even asked if you were okay to drive!!! And sheesh - look what happens - you strip, run someone over, and CONGRATULATE her for her score. Hand over the chocolate, PRONTO! :LOL

chrfath : for your dh. I hope that doesn't happen

Everyone who hung on after yesterday's wild ride (patting myself on the back too): congrats!

To those who had diaper "accidents" I think you are excused from the wagon to replace those items

I'm holding on again today. I hope it's a smooth ride! I've got at least 2 more days before I can buy anything. I'm getting my website and need to buy lots of fabric and supplies. So I really need some help!

No new diapers for me, thank you!

What am I saying???!!!

I'm here! Good morning all! I glanced at the custom orders for soaker pants, but calmly walked away. Too much $$$ for me right now anyway. Glad to see everybody hangin in there!
For those who fell off, get your tushes back up on this wagon and try to hold on tighter today!

I'm still here. Come pick me up please. I'll be quiet and anonymous on the wagon, just like on the board. We can chitchat nice and pleasantly and discuss whatever about styles and children, etc.

I even went rolling around on the TP to try and find potential good deals for someone else-- and I didn't buy anything. I went window shopping and didn't buy anything. Of course, I know I have some things coming... I just need to go through paypal to figure out all the things that are supposed to be coming (from pre-wagon purchases )

Anyway, no purchases since Sunday (or was it Saturday? My life is a little blurry on time issues).

I'm here! 4 days = 4 dollars in the diaper bank. I know it's nothing, but it keeps me motivated. I will NOT go over to the TP today...I will NOT.
