Oh no! Are you guys going to be ok? It will be nice being a SAHM, won't it? As for suggestions, my biggest splurge is on Sugar Peas, so I don't really have any hyena-like ideas for you, but if you need a nursing necklace look at this site: <a href="http://pureperfection.net/Lori/gallery.html" target="_blank">http://pureperfection.net/Lori/gallery.html</a> I just got one from her last week and it's so cute! She put Gisele's name in it and it has cow and pig and rooster beads. It might be a little over-stimulating for falling asleep! My other suggestion would be a Hanna Andersson outfit for dd.<br>

Personally, I'd go hang out on the TP here for a while. I find some of the best things there. Just watch a bit & there's bound to be something pretty come along... or right above me, click on ChristinaB's link in her signature. She's coming out with custom outfit/diaper combos. Sounds cute to me! I want. (ok, I just posted this a moment ago. I don't mean to sound like a broken record... but I'm excited!)

Sorry to hear about the job. Hopefully something much better will come along for you. I like to keep telling myself "Everything happens for a reason" when this kind of stuff happens. You never see it when you're in the depths of it though.<br><br>
Now, onto the shopping. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I always love something new and pretty to pick me up too. I would recommend <a href="http://www.lucyshopechest.com" target="_blank">Lucy's Hope Chest</a>. You don't have to wait and stalk to get your hands on something (which may only add to any frustration/irritation/depression). Plus the price is good so it won't hit you too hard. It's also a very fun and satisfying shopping experience to browse through all those beautiful fabric choices and get to pick out exactly what you want and "build" the diaper exactly how you want it. And the last bonus I'll mention is that she's usually pretty quick on the orders so you won't have to wait too long to get it in your hands and on your baby's bum.

Jeri,<br>
Hopefully we can meet you this week, but I don't know with all the sewing I need to finish... It might be nice to step out though. Will you be there?<br>
I haven't really had a chance to look around for shopping places yet, but I will <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br>
Hang in there <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
