Avivia, I use "used" dipes - Annie sent me some, and I got some from a friend, and a few on the TP/ebay. I just wash them really well (ok, Annie's just got washed once cuz she's got less germies) with lots of hot water a few times to make myself feel better.
Do you have a pic of your MT?
Yah, let dh deal with cranky baby. HA! If she's up late, she'll nap an extra nap in the morning and longer naps too, which means she'll essentially sleep the entire day until he leaves. I'm dropping him at the airport at 3:30, we have so much to get done by then.
Andy, I think the turtle is ok for at least a week alone, as long as there is water and a bowl of dry food, eh? I know we've left cats alone w/dry food and a clean litter box for a long weekend before.
Hey Jeni, I feel ya here. Last night dh and I stayed up and talked about crap (literally, the crappy way I feel, the crappy way we've been treating eachother, the crappy house we live in) and I told him how I get so mad at the baby when she wont' go to sleep and how then I feel like a bad mom for getting mad at her, and how I feel trapped when I'm stuck in bed with her every night nursing her to sleep and he's downstairs playing on the computer or something. Gah, I tell ya, it's no fun! And we put our bed down low so she can't really fall off... and I still put pillows around her so she can't fall the 8" that's left.
Michelle, WOOOHOOOO! DUMP THE FORMULA MAMA! I think you're all set
Mar, I'll come visit you, but I don't live anywhere near there. I think 'Bama is the closest or maybe Heidi in Fla.
Hey, I'm just reading your blog now, your house is BEAUTIFUL! Technically it's almost identical on the outside to ours, but gah, we have crappy walls and floors and no trim on the windows. Gives me something to aspire to. Maybe I'll bookmark it and come back to dream. Of course we've already taken sledge hammer to the builtin dining room cabinet - ours was IDENTICAL except for the window glass. Mine had leaded glass diamond panes... but I tell ya, freaky almost!
Karen, wow, that's amazing. I'm glad your dad is holding steady, I've never heard of a spinal stroke. More health to him. And icky on the itchies!
Postcards - tomorrow I'm going to Columbus for a few days, and I'm going to see if I can't remember to go downtown and get some postcards. Those will be more "ohio" ish than the ones I can get in Cleveland.
Gotta go, I told dh we MUST clean L's room, our room, and the living room today before he goes. NO EXCEPTIONS!
